Discussions that mention seroquel

Mental Health board


One of my diagnosis is severe major depressive disorder with psychotic features. The meds that have worked best are anti psychotics such as Zyprexa and Seroquel. The Zyprexa worked great but came with massive weight gain (60lbs+ in under six months) so it had to go. Been on Seroquel for seven months with the current dosage at 100mg three times a day plus 50mg when needed. It does a pretty good job but the dosage seems to have to be constantly increased to stay on top of it. I have been on numerous other medication classes that did little at all for the psychotic end.

There is not much to say except keep with the meds and hopefully they will take care of it. For some people there are triggers before a psychotic break such as an increase in stress but for others it just seems to happen.

take care
