I found out a long time ago it is not a good idea to have Dandelion root tea, and grapefruit with Quetiapine as it has bad interaction.

I take Orap and can't have grapefruit juice, the combination is highly toxic. So it doesn't surprise me if you say there are some bad combinations with Quetiapine as well.

I have been on Quetiapine ...and aripiprazole as well and found aripiprazole to be more effective and with less side effects ... aripiprazole I have found is also comes in lower dosage maximums and has some positives like no weight gain and no drowsiness, but keeps you awake instead !!

Cheerio !!

I was about to try the dandelion root tea, but luckily I read something on the internet that warned me not to do it.
