> I am currently taking 9 (300mg) of Neurontin daily along with 1 (150mg) of Effexor and 200mg of Seroquel a day. my pharmacist has warned me this is alot of central nervous system drugs. Does this seem like alot of medication for deppression?

Why is your pdoc having you take Seroquel for Depression? Yes. 200mg of Seroquel is a pretty powerful dose. Seroquel is an atypical antipsychotic. It can have strongly sedating effects. Also, it has dose related weight gain potential.

The more Seroquel that I take, the more mental and emotional numbness I experience. I have a dx of a very severe form of bipolar-1. I can have psychotic features on the high or low end of my episodes. Seroquel is not only an atypical anti psychotic, but a powerful mood stabilizer. So, it is the only mood stabilizer and antipsychotic that I take.

Like you, I also take Effexor (300 mg daily). I'm very pleased with this ad. But because I have a history of treatment resistivity, I also take T3 (Cytomel) and T4 (synthroid) in doses that allow me to achieve a T3 and T4 blood level in the upper-quartile of the normal range.

I hope that your Depression resolves immediately!
