I loved the great sleep I got on Seroquel, but hated the daytime irritability (quick to anger) and needed a little boost for daytime depression.
This sounds like a simple task. Why is this so difficult?
My doc has suggested daytime Abilify, Parnate, or Geodon.
What brain chemicals am I missing that would be causing me to be irritable during the day?
Geodon makes me depressed, flat and tired.
I wish I could help.. I know I used to be on Seroquel, but I am not anymore... I can't remember why it was stopped, but I am now on Abilify and have been on that for many years now with no side effects... I know that others have side effects on that though...
Unfortunately I think it is all a trial and error and you have to find out what works for you... Good Luck....
Hi Ginger - It just takes time to get the right combination of medications. I am on Abilify, Wellbutrin, and Prozac, as well as a couple of other meds. It took a while to get me straight, but now all I suffer from is a mild case of depression - but very seldom anymore - and some anxiety attacks. It's all frustrating, but you will get through it. Just hang in there.
