    Seroquel for Bipolar disorder

    I was prescribed Seroquel in the summer of 2012 for bipolar disorder (100 mg ret.). Even before, I had a slight degree of restless legs, with the first intake, the symptoms have dramatically worsened. Apart from that, I have tolerated the Seroquel until today, but I still take ropinirole because of the RLS symptoms. I feel with this drug mentally very good and stable, had for more than two years no (stronger) fluctuations more.

    Seroquel for Psychosis

    Seroquel definitely worked for me against the ever-threatening fat psychosis. That’s what all the other medicines of the past 16 years have done. Like all these medications, Seroquel made quite dramatic side effects: soon after taking it, it forces you into a tiredness, dullness, sometimes I thought I was going to pass out. After about a quarter of an hour passed this consciousness-clouded phase, but really powerful I was then the whole day nicht.Der blood pressure went as an outside sign for it in the basement.There was that falling asleep, the combination of stuffy nose, difficulty swallowing and pressure the chest led to suffocation attacks. After about 2 years this subsided, because the dose was lower. The weight was about the same (I have since the ingestion of neuroleptics anyway 20-30 pounds overweight) As a really corrosive NW Restless Leg syndrome came to falling asleep. That and the fear of suffocation made me afraid to fall asleep. On the other hand, I was given Tavor. I’ll take that today (at night). Since April of this year I take the new Seroquel prolong. That too makes you tired. But you only take it once a day because it’s the slow release version of Seroquel. I take it to the night (300 mg). At the same time I carried out a nutritional change. Nevertheless, I took 10 kilos. The weight gain has come to a standstill in the meantime, I also have no more suffocating attacks, and so, after a while, I also lose the fear of falling asleep. I rarely have restless legs, especially if I eat something sweet at night AFTER taking it. Oh yes, since 1996 I have nocturnal seizures, but can not establish a causal relationship with the tablets. But one observation is clear: granulated sugar, eaten after the night medication, made me restless-leg u, on the other hand, only helped getting up and running around, although I was totally tired. The paradox was that I got up, but magically dressed in the fridge, always looking for something edible-a vicious circle. I’ll do it now, but I’ll avoid anything where there’s sugar in it. Now the legs only rarely twitch. Conclusion: Any NW have probably all meds, great is not. But I’ve learned that I can not get along without it (I can only speak for myself), I’ve tried it without it, which resulted in an unprecedented boost. Now I swallow the tablets. I think that the body gets used to the drugs, sometimes to formulate cautious … and advise to slow, gradual reduction to individual optimal dose (maybe down to zero). I myself made a cold withdrawal and that was – as I said – fatal. The Seroquel prolong I can tolerate halfway, but I still find myself too weak, which often makes me dissatisfied. It does not do this fainting state like Seroquel, but it spreads the fatigue evenly throughout the day. Nochwas: For years I had dyskinesia, long-term consequences of Haldol / Rispedal; Now hands and feet do not feel like it anymore, maybe this is also due to yoga and meditation. Or the new medication … who knows?

    Seroquel for Bipolar disorder

    Worst of all, it was the first nights. I had the Restless legs syndrome. I was given a week’s Akiniton and then it was reasonably bearable. In addition, I had about 3 weeks Spachschwierigkeiten, came in the morning hardly ever out of bed, had a constant dry mouth, I was often black in the face and have gained weight. Sometimes I felt that my heart was leaping. Otherwise, I still had such minor side effects, such as a stuffy nose. I’m pretty happy now. It is limited to food cravings, mild vision problems, morning fine motor skills, hard bowel movements, and easy forgetfulness. I like to put up with that, because I am super balanced and come to inner peace to finally make my therapy successful.

    Seroquel for Depression

    When I took Seroquel for the first time, I had very strong NW’s and did not really notice much of the effect. My NW’s: restless legs syndrome, coma sleep, strong weight gain (20 kg in this time), I also had extreme mood swings and a feeling of numbness. These Nw’s were so unbearable for me that I discontinued the drug without consultation with my psychiatrist.

    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.
