Please read-seeing things on meds..

Hi, I just started taking Seroquel 100 mg a couple of days ago, I also take Lamictal 200mg for the past 2 months. Yesterday after taking the Seroquel I felt very high I was in space. I also started to see things. objects changing shapes. Has anyone else had this happen? Should I give Seroquel a chance or stop taking it. I know no is a doctor I just want to know what you think. I will be calling my pdoc on Tuesday. Thanks for the help..

I would definitely let your pdoc know about these changes, honestly I've never heard of this type of side effect with this combo of meds. I take both and have been up to 450mg. of Seroquel and 300mgs of Lamictal. The Seroquel normally has the exact opposite effect of people, and the Lamictal has the more agitating effect.

Good luck and let us know what your pdoc says.

I've never heard of that reaction to Seroquel. I think it'd be more likely to be the Lamictal.
Note: I don't know this. It's just a guess.

If the hallucinations began only with initiation of the meds, I think there's your answer.
Can you call your p/doc's office and ask someone on call? That's what I would do.

Have you had this before? It can also be one of the symptoms of bp.

Let us know how you're doing.

Yes, this happened to me with Geodon (similar drug)--totally undocumented effect, but turns out it has happened to about 60 people. Call your pdoc ASAP.
