Psychosis or paranoia

Also with an episode of pychosis, do they come out of it at anytime? Or if they don't get meds will he be like this from now on? I mean is there any hope my son will come out of this even for a day without taking meds? I've never had this happen and don't know anything about it much I'm wondering if there will be a possibility of this episode stopping even for a day or so

I have been told that a psychosis has to have medication. It will not just go away on it's own. It continues to worsen until hospitalization maybe necessary. That's my experience.

I have forgotten to take my thyroid meds, and given myself a psychosis. It's called myexedema madness. He may have another health condition driving the psychosis. It's good to get ontop of it, check his electrolytes and consult with a doctor.

No way to answer that question, @lolly906, until your son has a diagnosis.
As it could be caused by a neurological problem, dementia problem, thyroid or other endocrinology disorder. He needs to be seen by a team of doctors (preferably at a medical center with a multidisciplinary approach, like Mayo or a university medical center) in order to get the correct diagnosis. Most likely medication and therapy of some kind will be needed.
