    Feedback on Seroquel

    Hi! This is my first post. I recently got diagnosed as Bipolar I and the doctor put me on Seroquel with a target dose of 200mg. She is starting me on 50mg and is having me go up 50mg each week. I cut the pill in half and started at 25mg to avoid side effects. However, I slept all night and...

    Hate Seroquel

    Seroquel has ruined my life. Psychiatric drugs in general have ruined my life, but seroquel is the worst. And now I'm stuck on it, because every time I try to lower the dose my anxiety shoots sky high.

    yesterday I killed myself

    It's strange to be alive after I killed myself. Yesterday I had a strong urge to kill myself not because I want to die but because I want to kill myself. I can't go in detail here about those feelings. I called my pdoc. I couldn't talk to him. Then I feed the dogs and fill their water bowl...

    Olanzapine to Seroquel to Haldol

    Just found this website recommending a withdrawal process that involves changing from Olanzapine to Seroquel to Haldol as these effect less transmitters. I know it's a long shot but has anyone tried this? Five Easy Tips on How to Withdraw from Antipsychotics Safely | Alice W. Lee, MD, ABIHM -...

    I saw my psychiatrist on Thursday, and he said I was presenting PTSD symptoms. He wants to put me on busprione. He told me that it could take 6 weeks before it starts working, but that once it starts working it is very effective, and he even thinks I might be able to come off of Seroquel...

    Prozac withdrawal or starting Seroquel?

    Can they both cause nausea or is one more likely the culprit? Ever since I came off Prozac and started Seroquel Ive been horribly nauseous. I can barely eat. I know you all arent doctors but if you can help from your experiences that would be nice.

    Is 300mg in the morning of Seroquel and 600mg at night a high dose? I don't know. I feel fine right now. My thoughts are racing as much right now. I'm HAPPY. i'm excited. For the future.

    I'm tired of being a zombie

    Seroquel is the only bi polar medication I have been on. I've been taking it since last June, with good results as far as my mood goes. Excellent results were seen in a month. I was more confident, my self esteem was a bit higher, and I wasn't so depressed. I went to my psychiatrist in the...

    I'm back and I'm alive!

    Hi everyone, I haven't been on the mental health forum for a while now. The end of 2014 was a bit like the beginning of 2013. Hell. So many things have changed in my life. Remember how I used to complain about my GP week in, week out? I changed practice. I had Zoloft taken off me and...

    Decided with psychiatrist, to try and taper down

    So here we go again, currently on 400 MG seroquel daily, and 400 MG abilify, and we have decided in therapy, that this is too much medicine if lower doses can be tolerated and reasonable, and without major risk of any undesired outcome. We have decided to taper down to 200 MG abilify and keep...
