Re: charles bonnet syndrome
Dear jules 77, The only side effect for me is a dry mouth in the morning. The side effect in my mind is that I can remember with clarity everything I said during the time I was ill. Remembering can be upsetting as one feels so stupid. It is the only thing that seems to give me back a feeling of normality after 7 years of trying other things. My Doctor let out that she would get a slap on the wrist because Quetapine costs £170 for one month's supply. This was very interesting information as it showed me that perhaps some of the other medications I had been given were much less expensive. Perhaps they try the less expensive ones first. I do not know. I pay on our health system here about £4.00.for one month's supply. Unfortunately, my health insurance is only applicable in France as I thought I would be living there and I am not in France because I am here with my children getting better. Sadly this illness puts one in difficult uneconomical situations. Each visit to the Doctor here is £37.00. Again this is trying as one is loathe to go and see the Doctor. I am not in the U.K. I am on a minute island with its own Government. Her Majesty our Queen is the Duke of Normandy here, not the Duchess.
Back to side effects. It is vital that you read about all the spossible side effects and memorise them. I take Fluxetine in the morning and Quetapine at night and at long last I am feeling less anxious and have stopped doing and saying odd things. I wish you well.
