Then around am I heard a baby crying non stop this lasted until am. I am diagnosed as schizophrenic but for the last 10 years I have had very little symptoms.
I sat up for hours listening to what if feels like to be going insane! After 6 years of being shifted from one med to another all of which made me feel awful, made me put on weight and had no effect on my condition.
I was happy to be put on seroquel purely because I felt normal but still had very little effect on my symptoms.
I was very reluctant to change meds again so stuck with it .
Learn more about Seroquel."helps with delusions and hallucinations with schizophrenia, it doesn't help anxiety but does aid sleep at start but now I can take 400-800 at night and it still won't make me tired just calms my schizophrenia down a lot.
It is a very good antipsychotic not sure how people use it for sleep and it did help with sleep for the first week and now it doesn't make me sedated or tired but sedates my mind.""Wow this medication.. And I thank all those people who put their time and effort in producing this medication because without them, who knows where I'd be..
It took a while but after 2-3 years the symptoms started to decrease and just kept on decreasing .""I've been taking this drug for a few months I'm on a very high dose (800mg).
I was finding on lower doses my paranoia was overwhelming and my depression was getting to the suicidal point.
However it makes me very sleepy, sometimes I sleep 14 hours a day - and when I wake up I feel like I want to sleep even more. Eventually had to stop taking it because of how tired I always was.""The drug made me gain weight and become depressed which I was never before using of the drug. I would probably sue them for not warning me about the drugs addictive properties. However people have a right to be informed about what they are getting into.""I was prescribed Seroquel for PTSD. 25 mg, I had the worst panic attack if my life, I could barely walk, but I was so scared I kept trying to run around. She now takes it at bed time but it is not helping her.
:(""I've been prescribed seraquel now for roughly a year and the side effects are soooooo nasty I wouldn't recommend it at all,the main thing that attacks me relentlessly is the tickles under the skin in the legs and I'm probably keeping the neighbors awake cos Iv gotta keep stretching my legs and wriggling in bed to calm down the relentless torment that comes back maybe every 5/10 seconds for roughly 5/8hrs most nights, I've also got to the point where it feels like I'm going to swallow my tongue for hours on end and I wander if I'm gonna be alive the next day as well, I get to the point where I'm nearly asleep and self resuscitate with a jolt of adrenaline in my heart and a deep breath like I nearly drowned and nearly have a heart attack,it's NASTY""I complained to a friend of insomnia, mainly stress related.
The Geodon made me gain 60 lb eventually caused insomnia, binge eating, and heavy drinking.
Drugs like Fanapt and Lutuda made me more depressed/mind rush. My binge eating disorder continued, and I gained 40 lbs that year :/.
It was like my entire body on the inside was constantly being shocked with electricity and outside I literally could not move or even sit up. My mother inlaw takes 250 mg a day for schizophrenia, she has for six months now, so far it is not helping her delusions, hallucinations, paranoia.
