Help ... Doc wants to change my medication from Seroquel to Rexulti

Ive been taking Seroquel for many years and it works very effectively, the problem is that my mouth is so very dry now, that there is a big crack in the middle of my tongue and sores along the sides. My mouth has always been somewhat dry but it seems that as I'm aging its getting worse. I'm worried about trying Rexulti because I tried Abilify last summer and it made me very anxious, didn't sleep well and felt terrible. I know Rexulti is similar to it and just wondered if anyone has advice for me.

Don't worry @WaltzingMatilda . Iv'e been on Rexulti for a few years now and have no complaints. I had terrible troulbe with Abilify too, could not stop moving or settle down on that medication. I hope that quells your fears, a new medication always makes me a bit apprehensive too. I wish you luck with it

Sounds like those side effects from the Seroquel are pretty rough, even if you are used to them. Good luck on the new med and worst case you can always go back to the Seroquel if it does not work.
