Re: Any Positive advice about Seroquel?
I was on it for a little over 6 months for mania in association with the bipolar, but my experience was very stressful. I was hallucenating, talking and walking in my sleep, and randomly wandering off to the point that my husband and close friends had to treat me like a toddler. I had the same problems with my teeth, and went from perfect teeth to needing extensive work on 14 of my teeth (including 3 that just need to be pulled.)
I slept a lot on Seroquel, and even had problems in my college classes. I would fall asleep during class, even if I wasnt tired. I would just pass out wherever I was, which unfortunately was usually in the front row of class.
The biggest problems I had, though, were when i was coming off the drug. I would just snap into uncontrollable rages that were highlighted by the most angry, violent, and spiteful urges. That was the scariest part for me, because I really did feel like I could not control myself if I wanted to.
