    Seroquel for Psychosis

    I have been able to tolerate the Valette very well over the years. Since I was switched to 1000 – 800 mg of Seroquel, I always had sudden shortness of breath and chest tightness just after falling asleep. I had to cough up and then it was good again. I still do not know if the o. A. Symptoms were from the pill (Valette) or caused by my house dust mite allergy.

    Side effects: Difficulty in breathing

    Seroquel for Bulimia; Personality disorders; Borderline; Psychosis

    at the beginning of drug therapy (125mg seroquel), hardly responsive. strong fatigue, drowsiness, weakness. There was a time until the effect was noticeable. today (900mg seroquel), the body has become quite accustomed to it, except the steady tiredness. I am always tired, my speed is limited, sometimes lack of concentration and slowed down responsiveness. unfortunately, the mood swings despite medication increasingly often and stronger.stimmen but rarely.

    Seroquel for Psychosis

    I was 3 years on clozapine because of a severe psychosis. Generally good effect – I just could not shock or throw off track. For working people rather not suitable. Anyway, I had a hard time working. (tired, lethargic – just wanted my rest) Then came Abilify because I had bad blood levels. At first the bright madness (positive meant :-)) – fit, concentrated and totally self-confident. Just awesome – then I could not sleep at night anymore. Thought that will be back. Well that was 10 weeks like this: then unfortunately a new boost. (Stay awake at night and keep brooding) Now I’ve got Seroquel. Right now I’m fine: fit and in good shape during the day (Abilify) – At night I sleep like an angel (Seroquel prolong). Hope it stays that way now! Best regards

    Seroquel for Perceptual disorders; Borderline; Psychosis

    At the beginning, when I started with 25 mg, I did not have any side effects, but starting with 150 mg myocardial tachycardia started. I lay in bed and could not fall asleep suddenly I noticed my pulse all over my body. Of course, I immediately took a sister who then also measured my heart rate and blood pressure and my heart rate, although I was already half an hour quietly in bed, was at 170 and my blood pressure was also greatly increased. I then immediately got a pulse and blood pressure lowering agent. That made me feel better too. This was then every evening so now I take 600 mg and from now on also Prolong. Until now, these side effects have not gotten better I hope by the prolong because without the drug, I can not manage my everyday life and everything else …

    Seroquel for Psychosis

    Substantial increase in body weight, chest pain, fungal infection, cystitis, listlessness, tired. Discontinuing the medication led to schizophrenia again, so I am probably dependent on this for my entire life. Take Seroquel 300 mg in the morning and in the evening, side effect as above. Become in two days on Seroquel Prolong 300 mg again in the morning and in the evening, let’s see what happens. Hope to reduce the intake of 100 to 200 mg in the evening. The use of Leponex was the horror, have increased within six months 20 kilos and once a week had to lose blood with patient passport, since this drug has very serious side effects. At the same time Lyogen was taken which was calming.

    Seroquel for Psychosis

    At 13 I got delusions, I thought I would only play something and the truth would look very different. Came into a day clinic for 5 months, felt very well there after initial teething problems. I was then prescribed Risperdal, 0.5 mg in the morning and 1 mg in the evening. To adjust Risperdal to this dose for me, I had to go into a child and adolescent psychiatry (Marl). The 5 weeks there was the worst horror for me. One evening I got a brown tablet (0.5 mg Risperdal, not yet my final dose) and the following evening it was half a white tablet (also 0.5 mg Risperdal, just that I did not know). It was funny and I said that I got a brown one the day before and the nurse basically declared me crazy. That’s when I was done, fortunately my father was there the evening that helped me and it has cleared up, but the sister I and my objection had not really mattered. What I also had to get used to was the limited scope when taking: The doctor there had told me worst, Risperdal never take more than an hour time difference. That If I take the tablets in the morning at half past 8 in the morning, I was allowed to take the tablets at the weekend at half past 9 at the latest. No idea if that really had to be, I just made it 2 hours out of it. I was also warned that never forgetting to take it could cause symptoms to recur, as well as alcohol consumption. After the dismissal, I felt better pretty quickly. My only side effect was a circle that I saw when I was tired, lying in bed in the evening and trying to sleep. This side effect lasted for a long time but slowly got better and better. Later came milk flow, my rule came and still comes, thanks to the pill regularly. Against the milk flow and an ever-increasing prolactin level, by which one can become conditionally infertile, I got bromocriptine. That did not help much. Finally, a few months ago, I changed to Seroquel Prolong (prolonged-release tablets), before going to bed, 200 mg. Milk flow is gone, I could not check the prolactin level again (had no time yet). But I think he has fallen again. I have absolutely no problems with Seroquel. Zero. I can only say good things about Seroquel, apart from the price, I have to pay now 10 € in the pharmacy, that was free of charge at Risperdal. When I read the posts here from others about Seroquel, I was really shocked! Mostly there was talk of more than 10 kg weight gain. I have even lost a few pounds with Seroquel, but could also be due to a stressful situation at the beginning of taking. At Risperdal it may be that I started to gain some weight at the beginning, but over time this has changed again. I am super well with Seroquel, I am also much less restricted than Risperdal. I can sleep as late as I want in the morning (at least on weekends), because I no longer have to pay attention to the super punctual intake. I have to add to Risperdal that during the intake I had a very high salivation, meanwhile a little less. My delusions that something is being played to me and the truth is hidden have finally proved to be TRUE. My parents did not feel well in the relationship, my dad cheated on my mother several times, and I felt that, totally unconsciously. Two years after the onset of my illness, I was stable for about 1 year, my parents separated. It was not until much later that I learned from my father that he had gone astray, right at the time when my illness began to make itself felt. With that I could explain a lot, but that does not mean that I think that without the cheating my illness would not have turned up.

    Side effects: Milk bullet

    Seroquel for Psychosis

    Seroquel helps me to live with my psychosis. Helps me to distinguish between illusion / voices and reality. But has NW, NW, NW … I have in the 1st year Seroquel almost 60kg! increased. One kg more each week! At first insane hunger, could eat without end. I pulled the food brake after 2 months, in vain. Seroquel made me lethargic, indifferent, fat. In the 2nd year I got diabetes type II, Who wonders? With diabetes, its companion: high cholesterol and triglycerin levels. Only the blood pressure is correct (so straight). I am restricted in movement due to another previous illness. Can barely walk, just stand there for a moment. Seroquel came, my libido (lust from sex) went. My menstruation too. In between, I stopped the medication for 1 year, unfortunately all NW remained, the psychosis became stronger. Now I am on Seroquel Prolong for 2 months, 50% of the Seroquel dose. Let’s see. Because of the strong unwanted NW, I was once switched to Truxal, total failure: I continued to + had teeth chattering day and night, did not go. Abilify was also tried: had a terrible flashback, did not help. Risperdal was pure horror at the setting (worst stomach cramps, vomiting up to 6 times a day, after 3 weeks it was ok, after 3 months breast milk shot in, I dripped like ice at 30 ° C. I was not pregnant, so it stayed that way at Seroquel.

    Seroquel for Psychosis

    Hello! I must first comment on the review, since I find it better not to have to take medication, but well. I seem to have contracted a psychosis about 6 years ago, so 100% I can not understand that, I think a consequence of depressive mood, stress, excessive alcohol consumption and drug abuse ………… Bumm but now! Hmm, what can I say actually I can not change anything now, but the first time I was treated then in 2006 with Abilify and got in the course of this also Mirtabene prescribed. So I did not postpone both and had to take Abilify in the morning and Mirtabene in the evening. Was crazy, I was turned up like a music box could hardly concentrate and was uneasy hoch2. In the evening the Mirtabene have given me a damper that I fell asleep after half an hour after taking, but was not restful sleep. Was the next morning so finished, missed me the Abilify and jumped like an uncontrolled electric motor. After half a year, I dropped her off and just wanted to detoxify her! In 2008, I was prescribed Seroquel which was more tolerable, but I could not assign the effect, in company with Tresleen, both were somehow funny to observe, from Seroquel I did not realize that they have used nor a side effect. Tresslen was more of a hilarity pill which was somehow recognizable, but that’s just not possible. But I thought after 5 months I was stable enough and wanted to sell them both again, which I also with Dr. med. have done! Approximately two months (2009) on it I had a flu infection, which was treated by the family doctor with antibiotics, was bedridden for 2 weeks and then sucked out like a lemon. I was a service technician and I quit my job, I did not have the strength anymore, and I barely got the strength over the summer, with lots of nature, healthy food, what else do I know ……. there was nothing left , am still unemployed and must start from January 2010 with a new therapy, in the course of a pension application! Depressive concomitants, muscle pain, breath control (passes into anxiety, not ache), nervousness, and social phobic approaches, degradation v. Selbstverdrauen.etc.etc. I think that some things come together, private, sanitary-spiritual-physical Maybe there is someone who, on the whole, has similar experiences, how long the procedure has been, there is a final cure, is a loss of strength orauerent or passes again. OK, I would get a lot of ideas, but it’s fine the way I put it together.

    Seroquel for Psychosis

    Hello people, my name is Lena, I had a psychosis and I was in the clinic for three months. That did not help me at all and I went home the same way I was at the beginning, but with 10 kilos more weight. Furthermore I took Seroquel and Lyrica. I slept very badly, have no appetite. In three months I weighed 83 kilos instead of 53 kilos. I still had crazy restlessness and anxiety. When I sent my pictures to my mother, she tore them up and threw them away, saying she never saw me like this before. Then within a week the six tablets Seroquel and Lyrica dropped off and everything was discarded and my mother sent me Flufenasin in ampoules. I inject myself with a vial 25mg once in two months. And Rivotril and Tavor threw in the trash. In three months I had lost the 30 kilos and we have made a very nice holiday with my friend on Tenerife. I am proud of myself and I love and thank my friend who has taken everything with me

    Seroquel for Psychosis

    Hello, I was forced to take 15 years of Eclrit (clozapine). It made me dead tired and pretty fat. When I dropped it off, I was forcibly locked up on the closed. There it is hell and one is treated incapacitated. Then the doctors tried Seroquel and Amisulprid. Although I felt mentally well, I increased from 64kg to 105kg within 16months. Then I got cramps in the whole body, with amisulpride this is a side effect. I could no longer wash my hair without getting cramps in my forearms, could not walk anymore, then I got cramps in my lower shoulder muscles and could not move at all. My doctor did not see the medication, although I was unable to work. All I can say is that I do not know any drug in psychiatry that does not have totally bad side effects anywhere!

    Side effects: Cramps; Increase in weight

    Seroquel for Psychosis

    My experiences with Seroquel Prolong and Seroquel (film-coated tablets) are very good. It overcomes my obsessions and is actually well tolerated. Occasionally after taking it, I feel circulatory problems and then have to lie down a little. But still better than heavy obsessive thoughts. Thanks to the film-coated tablets from Seroquel, I can finally sleep again. In the morning I take Seroquel Prolong 600mg and in the evening 200mg Seroquel film-coated tablets. Against my panic attacks I get trimipramine 75mg and this medication helps me very well. Here I can not find any side effects. The dosage is actually not that high.

    Side effects: Circulation problems

    Seroquel for Drive disorders; Psychosis

    By taking 10 mg of Abilify and drinking a cup of coffee, I’m not just wide awake, but strangely enough like Speed. Although my drive disorders are gone, but come back after about 2-3 hours. In the meantime, I would my condition 30min. after taking it as full on designate. My side effects are: confusion, sweats, and a kind of trance to report on my state of mind … any activity, conversation, and even many actions are not logically logical to me. In a nutshell: I’m not really there. It is time to live with my illness and to cure myself in a conventional way. I do not know yet how. The fact is, all the psychopharmaceuticals I have ever taken have not only changed my personality but also my feelings my personality and my perception of the environment. To anyone who has tried Medis, if there are any signs of any of these side effects, immediately change the doctor (to discuss a sedation) or try another medicine. P.S: Does it have something to do with nicotine consumption ????

    Side effects: Sweats; Confusion

    Seroquel for Psychosis; Sleep disorders; Depression

    Haldol and Risperidon … Hellendinger! But well … They work differently for each … In Haldol I suffered from painful gaze spasms, extrapyramidal movement disorders, mild tremors in the arms and legs and after weaning, a nearly 5 months persisting insomnia, only by diazepane intravenously was suspended for just 4 hours. Risperdal had similar side effects … tremor and uneasiness or something … Both drugs made me helpless and desperate! Amitriptyline made little mention of it … The drive got better … However, it caused a mania and confusion … And Seroquel … Works okay, but even at a low dosage of 100-0-100 it has strange emotional deafness caused! Good that I do not take all these fucking things anymore …..

    Side effects: Confusion; Insomnia

    Seroquel for Psychosis

    Weight gain and the first few weeks problems with the circulation and constipation. I was often black in front of eyes. Over time, the circulatory and intestinal problems disappeared again. Dose: During the acute phase in the morning / evening in each case 400mg, later only 300mg in the afternoon Seroquel was with me a few weeks ago in the clinic at his own request ausge¬ and I had a bit of a headache. These disappeared. It is a good medi but also very expensive. So after a long time without and extreme sleep disorders and a mild manic phase, I mourn the medi something. Seems to have done more than I realized.

    Seroquel for Psychosis

    So all in all, I have pretty much described my entire clinical picture, and now that I have read one or the other entries, I simply say away that everything is individual. Since I had a serious personal private crisis when I took it, the aftermath of a depressive story, I was consuming so much drugs and alcohol for a while that I hardly dare to say how I should feel or act before or after taking Abilify. What I can say for sure, I was permanently tense, had to move constantly and was nervous in bed kicking legs and other defuse things. Um, from a medical point of view, it can also be a later withdrawal, but who knows so well. At least during the intake and weeks after weaning I was dry for a total of 6 – 8 months, no more a narcotic. The fact is that I still do not care whether it is now Abilify or Seroquel, always a tension headache, migraine-like condition, and also have problems in a relaxed state let go, let your soul! as one says so nicely, but if you believe in the definition what a psychosis is, that should not be the case any more. Seroquel was hardly so dominant for me, I also lived abstinet while taking it, but always somehow a slight rush of altitude, a defused feeling of inexplicable sensations, like headache or scalp tension, something like that. But I do not know any noticeable difference to the conditions at the time of taking Abilify or Seroquel, except for the tolerability. Tresleen was very well tolerated, could feed a kilo, and give only very gently their relapses to the recovery, often I think for other, from, maybe even again only psychotic ………… brr Mirtabene is the absolute hammer, a sleeping pill is nothing against it, I have never really become aware of side effects, because you just lie down, sleep, has simple weight over everything. This is probably the side effect.

    Side effects: Sensation disorders; Fatigue
