Re: Seroquel

I'm wondering if perhaps the other medication you were on contributed to some of your side effects. I've heard a lot of horror stories about Effexor; I've never been on it myself but I know of more than a few people who have been and who complained of a lot of similar symptoms. Could it be from either the Effexor or the combination of the two instead of just from the Seroquel?

I guess I'll just have to try it and see what it does for me. If it really is linked to weight loss I'll have to ditch it, because over the last half a year or so, due to being on various meds and painkillers particularly, I've dropped to under 105, which at 5'6 1/2" is already pretty skinny, I don't want to go any lower.

I suppose seeing things sometimes is better than being the walking dead all the time. I know when I was a teen and on Risperdal I was such a zombie that I can't remember a single minute of the entire time I was on the pills. But I don't have any issues like that mentally (I'm bipolar, borderline, obsessive-compulsive, and have a panic disorder), my doctor resorted to the Seroquel only because we were really starting to run low on options and he says he's had quite a lot of success using it in lower doses to treat insomnia/mania.

As always I guess all anyone can do is hope for the best.
