    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 Drive disorders; Mood swings; Bipolar disorder; Depression

    I also voted against my Bipolar Affective Disorder Manic Depressive Disease called these two medications together with my doctor after several years of searching in vain for the right medication. At the beginning, every fortnight I wavered between low mood and unnoticed hypomania. When I did not pay much attention to it and continued to work 60-70 hours a week and in the meantime gave birth to 2 children, it became so bad that I took the eighth train of the emotions on the same day at least once , Today I know why I got this disease as a gift. Back in my teens, when I had very severe acne, my doctor prescribed me a drug called Roaccutan as a last resort, which allegedly drove at least 9 people into suicide. I was lucky enough to be able to control my suicidal thoughts and have myself admitted to open psychiatry. There I was prescribed lithium first. Then they experimented with different drugs from Trevilor to Zeldox or Atypical Neuroleptics like Sulpiride in small doses. But whenever the medications had helped for a few days, the effect simply stopped after certain times. And especially the hypomania was gone but the shit …… Depris were always there and I could not be happy anymore and always had something like a stone in the pit of my stomach. Until I found the combination myself with my doctor. The Seroquel helps me to protect myself in both directions. It helps me more against the exhausting hypo or partial mania. But it does not help enough against depression. That’s why I tried fluoxetine, and lo and behold, both drugs in combination have totally changed my life. When my doctor returned from the congress he said that for bipolar people it is the best combination right now to take these two medicines. At the beginning I had the lithium in addition to the seroquel and fluoxetine. I have asked my doctor to omit the exhausting lithium. He agreed and it came as it had to come. I became so manic that I became aggressive and turned on some people totally and turned off completely. When I was in the open two weeks, I was the seroquel increased by 50% and reduced the driving fluoxetine to a single dose. Since this hospitalization I have now the dose in the morning 100mg Seroquel and 20mg Fluoxetine. In the evening I take now 400mg Seroquel and that’s it. Since then, I feel something of normal as years no longer. I have no big weight gain from the Seroquel and then only between 2 and 4 kilograms. I was always tired and broken at the beginning with the treatment of Seroquel and did not get out of bed. This has changed with the dose increase. I can think clearer again and I can remember things again. So exactly the opposite what others are reporting here about the Seroquel. I have had the best experience with Seroquel and Fluoxetine. And if I have Parkinson’s in 20 years I do not care. Because then at least I was allowed to experience my good years in a normal and joyful way. I wish you all that it may be the same with you as with me. It took me almost 5 years to find the right medication.

    Seroquel for Social phobia; Depression

    My mood has improved a bit at the beginning, although it was unclear whether it was due to the drug. After (longer) intake of 2-3 months, however, no positive effect was felt, neither on the depression nor on the social phobia, so I had to discontinue the drug again. My dose was 100mg in the morning retard and in the evening 100mg to sleep, which worked very well by the drug. In combination with other medications, restless legs syndrome frequently occurred.

    Seroquel for Dissociative disturbance

    Take Seroquel (200 mg) since a hospital stay last year, while still taking Seroquel prolong (500mg), Sertraline (150mg) and Lyrica (500mg) for various indoor personalities. In the beginning I felt especially the nausea and took off first (8 kg), but then followed the cravings and strong weight gain (about 20 kg). Now at least I stop the unrestrained Seroquel and especially feel the nausea very strong, can hardly eat or drink anything, even water is difficult. However, I have to say that the drug worked very well with me, I was calmer and in combination with the other medis were also the fears and panic attacks down significantly. But I would still not recommend it mainly because of the weight gain and I’m glad if I withdrew it.

    Seroquel for Dissociative disturbance

    At the beginning I took Seroquel prolong 100 mg in the evening. I was very slowed down. Was only tired. I felt like someone put the handbrake on me. That did not get much better with only 50 mg. Now I take 50 mg of Seroquel without this prolong. Also in the evening. My tiredness and listlessness is not that strong anymore.

    Seroquel for Hallucinations; Fatigue; Sleep disorders; Depression

    I have been taking Remergil for 2 months, the dose was only 15 mg and then increased to 30 mg, because the desired effect was not shown. Then the dose was reduced to 15 mg and I got the Cipralex in the morning (first 5 mg then 10 mg). So far, I still notice no change in mood swings. And since 7 days I get the Seroquel which really helps very well against my voice hearing. Unfortunately, I have increased by the Remergil within the time of taking 11 pounds. This is very stressful for me because I’m in a depression 🙁

    Seroquel for Perceptual disorders

    Hello dear suffering enjoyed in and comrades. No, I do not come from the former GDR, which would have to give me the chosen word jargon. I am a strong guy, in his mid-thirties, who has been taking the neuroleptic Seroquel for 10 years now. The concomitants are manifold. I previously weighed 85 kg at 1.90. Now the Seroquel and I have arrived at 115 kg in our 10 year old friendship, a good 30 kg more. This increase in weight manifests itself in a water and tissue fluid accumulation on the bellies. So I am visually pregnant and one assumes that I will overdo it with the evening beer. Furthermore, you should do some sports. That this with the sport is not so easy to implement, probably due to the inertia that prepares me the Quetiapin. Therefore, losing weight will probably remain a pious wish. Now to the other side effects briefly summarized: Sleep requirement of at least 10 hours, no more libido available, an erection is very difficult to get, partial loss of the previously existing self-confidence in this regard! Occasional tipping, in the form of amnesia and short unconsciousness during the day, but only for a fraction of a second, driving a feeling like being on a train, emotionally dying, difficulty remembering names and things. Why I still hold on to Seroquel I can tell you: My obsessive thoughts are gone, I can stand alone, I have no more casino and waste addiction, I am more positive towards people and I see women no longer as moaning sex object, but as People who are emotionally close to me and take me as I am. I think that Seruquel has saved my life and that by using this remedy in combination with Opipramol and Cipralex I no longer see life as a threat and the daily routine as terror, but finally find time and leisure, the really important beautiful things of life to have met. Love mentally distressed, there is nothing in life, especially not with neuroleptics and antidepressants. This medication can improve your life, but only if you can deal with the side effects as a necessary evil and get a positive attitude towards those.

    Unfortunately, I have been greatly increased by Seroquel.This, however, in combination with a significant hypofunction of the thyroid.I also take other medications, Trevilor, L-thyroxine, Melperon and Lyrica.Unfortunately, this is not otherwise feasible. Under the Medikamet Seroquel in combination with the other drugs, I feel really great. Sleep better, hardly any fears, good mood usw..Ich can recommend it quiet conscience. Only a few side effects are constant colds and dysphagia, but I like to accept. Sometimes it annoys, but on the whole, I get along well with it.

    Seroquel for Unrest

    I have a schizoaffective psychosis, I am depressed, manic and psychotic. All at the same time. These conditions are muted by the many medications, they are not quite gone. To get this constant back and forth better, I have been prescribed Prolong. But sometimes my conditions are stronger than Prolong, and then it does not help anymore. I’m either too tired, too restless or too depressed. I wanted more balance with myself. Prolong does not do that. I have few side effects. Better to say, I gained 8 KG. Not bad with me.

    Seroquel for Overweight

    I take now for about .4 to 5 months 200mg Seroque in the morning and 400mg before going to bed. And have since gained 10kg. I also take 150mg Trittico in the evening and 50mg Treslen in the Füh. Since I’ve gained so much from the Seroquel, I wanted to ask if there is anything else that has the same effect but does not cause weight gain. I suffer from this increase mentally and dare only to wear wide clothes. And swimming is a catastrophe for me and my friend. I had a very good figure before and as soon as I see somebody in the swimming pool who has my former figure, I start crying and immediately get dressed because I feel so uncomfortable in mine Skin feels, yes I am ashamed for the stomach and my thighs. I do sports and eat almost nothing anymore but I just admit, I want to stop it and find another medicine. Please help me, I’m so desperate !!!
