Quetiapine (50mg) for unrest

Ive been using this now for three months at 2x50mg per day. I was prescribed this because for the first time in my life my restlessness has become a problem. pros: no bad flashbacks, no trouble falling asleep, dont stress about things. Cons: dry skin/face, don't really feel like i am alive, weird long dreams but they can be fun sometimes aswell.

Quetiapine (100mg) for bipolar disorder

This was offered to me to help keep me calm. The retard version helped me to sleep, took it at 9pm but then during the day I was really groggy. That's why I switched to the short-acting version, which lasts for 7 hours.

Quetiapine (50mg) for psychosis

Because of psychosis (delusions) I started taking Seroquel 50XR. Really quickly, within 2 weeks, my symptoms had disappeared. I am really happy despite the fact that I tire easily and gain weight and have a reduced libido.

Quetiapine (100mg) for bipolar disorder

I have recently started taking quetiapine retard for my bipolar disorder and I'm really happy with it. I sleep better (above all) but I am also generally in a better mood, I feel lighter (can rationalise better) and I'm more active again. but at the same time I have also noticed that I find it harder to motivate myself to actually do anything. The only (minor) side effect I've experienced is th...

Quetiapine (50mg) for emotional exhaustion / burnout

I had an extreme reaction after 4 days: walked like a drunken sailor, made strange mistakes, nearly fell down twice, had serious loss of memory on day 5 and couldn’t answer simple questions like what year is it? They suspected a TIA and I was admitted to hospital immediately. Luckily the scan came out clean and after quitting quetiapine it only took 2 days to feel a lot better. My GP gave me th...

Quetiapine (25mg) for psychosis

After taking just 1 tablet, I suddenly became extremely tired. After falling asleep it was really difficult to fully wake up again. Had really bad pain on my chest and was fading in and out. I called the GP and an ambulance was sent for me. The ECG was all over the place, so bad that it was faxed to the hospital in Zwolle and a cardiologist got in touch. Advice: drink plenty of water to get the...

Quetiapine (25mg) for anxiety disorder

This medicine is horrendous. I slept like a log after I'd taken it. The following morning it was like I was under water. My brain was slow and thoughts were all over the place. Part of my face felt numb. My front teeth had no feeling. I simply couldn't function. Laid in bed for 3 days with stabbing pains at the back of my head. Your whole head is under attack. Couldn't do anything except wait f...

Quetiapine (25mg) for anxiety & panic disorder

I've been taking this medicine for a few months now, 25 mg per day, I have anxiety attacks caused by a heart attack, now I have regular cramps in my jaw, according to the cardiologist and the GP this is not related to my heart so I don't know what else I'm supposed to do about the cramps in my jaw, I feel like I'm going to suffer another attack so the cycle continues, it happens a lot a night, ...

Quetiapine (25mg) for anxiety & panic disorder

I was prescribed this for my panic attacks. This works amazingly well for them. The attacks haven't gone altogether but they have reduced considerably. It has meant I can get through the day more easily and can relax better overnight.

Quetiapine (50mg) for anxiety & panic disorder

I take this medicine before I go to sleep .. You fall asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow, but when I wake up it's like I'm a zombie or something. It takes like half a day before I feel awake again .. I feel like my fingers and feet are swollen and it's not nice. I have considered stopping this even though I've been taking them for years. I have spoken about this with my therapist. The ...

Quetiapine (300mg) for unrest

Quetiapine (25mg) for unrest

i am incredibly stressed about the harassment in my head that just won't go away. i still experience it intensely even though it's already been a year. my gp wanted me to calm down and eat again. The quetiapine made me dead sick. The commotion in my head was suppressed and that was fine but I thought I was going to die! the ambulance came. could hardly breathe, head pain, dizzy, seeing just whi...

Quetiapine (100mg) for psychological complaints

Motivation seems to have disappeared. Which has triggered other complaints such as chronic sleepiness, lack of inspiration and decisiveness. Because of this medicine. But because I've been taking this, I don't need clinical intervention any more. I haven't had to have outpatient appointments for years.

Quetiapine (50mg) for bipolar disorder

I started on 50 mg quetiapine yesterday. As well as that, I've been taking 450 mg Wellbrutin for years. I have a bipolar disorder and most recently really suffered with mood swings. I have got the quetiapine to suppress the mood swings. I am really shocked at the effect of quetiapine. I find it far too strong, so much so that as soon as I've taken it I get really tired and just want to sleep. I...

Quetiapine (25mg) for Asperger's syndrome (AS)

I started on risperidone but struggled with its side-effects. I've now been taking quetiapine for four years at a low dose (25 mg). during the day I'm a lot calmer and above all I've noticed that my pot doesn't bubble over as often, and the biggest advantage is that I can now recognise when my pot is about to bubble over and can take time for myself. I used to be a morning person and was always...

Quetiapine (25mg) for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

In the beginning they helped but as time went on extremely dull, in the morning it took an hour to come round, you felt like you were always asleep because the dullness carried on all day, I did little to nothing. Couldn't manage my daily routine, lay around on the sofa, had more panic attacks and really bad depressive symptoms and thoughts. Because I didn't do anything else I started to worry ...

Quetiapine (50mg) for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

This little pill is a miracle drug! Before I used to have 6 or 7 nightmares a night and I was happy if I could sleep for two consecutive hours. Now I only have the occasional one. The length of the flashbacks has considerably reduced as well. The only side effect that I can think of is feeling sleepy when I get up. But this is easy to solve by being active in the morning; for example cycling or...
