i just got prescribed seroquel today. I'm a little nervous because i've been on psych meds for almost 12 years but i have never been on so much. I'm also on klonapin and zoloft. does anybody know what kind of reactions there are when you first start taking it?
I am a bit shocked, I am on seroquel 300mg a day for over a year now, I thought it was for a paranoid/bipola disorder, does this mean they think I have schizophrenia but havent told me ? Are they one and the same ?

I was on seroquel for awhile, 400mg. those pills made me vow to never take medication ever again, unless It were a matter of life or death. after taking them for several months I was asleep 18+ hours of the day, and when i was awake my IQ had lowered to almost retard levels. It also caused me to have trouble breathing sometimes to the point I actually had to go to the hospital... but maybe if youre on a lower dose it wont be so bad.

hey im also on seroquwl/quetiapine and only that for bipolar disorder the reason for them puttin me on that is my highs

i mostly had highs and since physcosis is more prodominant with schizoprenia and related to the manias/highs

it works well and have been on it 5 years now and stable most of that

dont panic they arent tryin to tell you that your diagnosis is different

its just that some meds work better for some and not for others:angel:
