Questions re Seroquel and re estrogen (Lar? SLS?)

Posted by Racer on November 16, 2005, at 11:01:10

My first question is about Seroquel, and it's weird, so just bear with me:

Is Seroquel likely to affect female hormonal cycles? When I was in the hospital recently, I was given Seroquel as part of the sedation cocktail. The cycle I was in at that time turned out to be 15 days long! That's short even for me. So, while it could certainly be the stress, I'm wondering if the Seroquel could have had anything to do with that?

And now for the other question:

I've taken Clomid this cycle to try to induce my ovaries to work a bit more. While my mood has slipped again now, halfway through my cycle, during the Clomid cycle and for a week or so afterwards, I felt GREAT. Not euphoric, not hypomanic, not superhuman, I couldn't fly, nor leap tall buildings in a single bound -- just good, for the first time in years. I felt like myself, the way anti-depressants are supposed to do for us.

I'm assuming that it did something towards normalizing my hormones, and I'm hoping that this would give some sort of clue towards 'fixing' my depression. Can anyone tell me what this clue might mean? If it points towards anything that might help me longer term? (I don't think this cycle worked, so I'll be taking it again next month, I guess. I'm not unhappy about that, either.)

Although I was warned about hot flashes, mood swings, and so on, I've had none of those things. Just a week or two of total remission, and feeling better than I have in years.
