Discussions that mention seroquel

Schizophrenia board


It's a horrible situation to be in. All anti-psychotic meds can have terrible side effects, sadly. What works for one and is tolerable won't be the same for another. My son has SZ, he tried about 8 different meds and is now off them all because of the side effects, and is slipping too.

My daughter is also SZ but can tolerate Seroquel with no issues at all, which my son couldn't.

I think it really is a case of trial and error, don't give up. Keep trying different ones and let them get up to a theraputic level before giving up on them, you might find that after a while your body can take them better. I think Talomil is an anti-depressant, not sure if it's used to treat psychosis too.

Good luck, hope you can find something to help.
