Seroquel + severe muscle pain...

Posted by Sheilac on July 30, 2017, at 10:13:20

Looking back over my posts over the years, this is not the first time this has happened.

During the last 2 weeks I've been on 200mg Seroquel at night and I feel great. Well, my mood is stable and I'm not manic or depressed. My body, on the other hand is a different story. I've been in severe pain. I thought I pulled a muscle, but then the pain & tightness spread through my neck, shoulders & back. I've been to the chiropractor twice a week and have gotten 4 massages over the last 2 weeks. I've even resorted to pain meds & muscle relaxers. Over the past few days I tapered down from 200mg to 150, to 100 and last night 50mg.

I'm still in pain, but I figure it takes several days for it to leave my body.

I'm not sure what's next. I'm taking 2500mg keppra as my mood stabilizer because it doesn't cause any weird side effects.

I'm back to needing an additional mood stabilizer with AD effects. I have an additional pain condition that requires I occasionally take a norco, which, if not completely stable, can make me manic. Any thoughts on this crazy, hard to treat gal?

I'm hoping low dose Seroquel will help & the muscle pain will go away. Or I have Abilify I can try again. Or I have low dose lithium carbonate (150mg capsules).

I read that only 1 in 100 people get the severe muscle pain & tightness from Seroquel. Seriously?!
