My mum had her kidney transplantation twice, once in 1994 and the second one was in 2005. She is having paranoia, which it might the stress from long-term illness and the side effects of the medicines she has been taking.
She now distrust people around her even my dad and her friends. She constantly over think a conversation and think that someone wants her die. The worst thing is that she believes that my dad has affairs and goes on my dad 24 hours (in particular at night).
We took her to see doctor in Hong Kong and now is taking Olanzapine (10mg/day).
It seems the effects of such tablets is slow and she is still going at my dad regarding the affairs she thought he is having( which is not true), and affect her life and family harmonisation to a great extent.
I wonder whether another other treatment helps apart from taking medi, such as CBT? Please help and advice.
maybe family therapy would help. paranoia is hard to deal with but maybe if your dad can make her see his loyalty she will feel better..of course paranoia is not really to do with the real world, though, and sometimes the more people try to make you feel better the more suspicious you become because it makes it seem like people are working together against you. maybe there is medication she can take, maybe cbt is the answer, or talk to a specialist and see what's going on.
