Smile Seeing the devil and talking with god

A 23-year-old male presents to the emergency room stating that he has been hearing voices emanating from the toilet. For the past 8 months, the patient admits that he has been increasingly distant from his friends and has not been engaging in his usual activities. He also claims that he has been in touch with God and believes that he has seen the devil at his doorstep. The intern working him up believes the patient may have schizophrenia. Of the following, which is the least likely to cause auditory hallucinations?
A. Alcohol withdrawal
B. Psychosis
C. Vitamin supplements
D. Cocaine intoxication
E. Sleep deprivation

Vitamin supplementation.


On the other hand deficiency in Thiamine (B1) may lead to Korsakoff psychosis...
