After speaking to my cpn she has told me my consultant is going to offer me the depot injection for my suicidal thoughts. Does anyone get this? If so does it help? Are there any bad side effects?

Thanks in advance

Hi thanks for your reply. I’m not really sure, will find out tomorrow when I see my cpn. I’m currently on the antipsychotic drug called quetiapine. Did you need to go into hospital when you first started the injection?
I’m scared incase the tell me I need to go into a mental health ward again 😢😢.

I'm also on quetiapine just increased today from 600mg to 750mg

What dose of quetiapine are you on?

Yea find out what depot injection you'll be taking...

I go to the local psychiatric center for the depot

By the way incase you don't already know the depot is done on your backside

I’m on 600mg of quetiapine. I thought the injection replaced the quetiapine, is that incorrect then?
