User Comments about Seroquel
18 Dec 2013 Psychology Today has been doing a series of articles on Liberal Bias in social Psychology, where Psychology Today speaks of liberal narratives of oppression and persecution, and of self-fulfilling prophecies. Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia says under the headings of, Chemical Imbalance, Anti-psychotic, and Psychiatric Medication, that drug meds cause numerous of the symptoms believed to be mental illness symptoms, as well.

10 Jan 2013 terrible experience with Seroquel. I turned into a zombie not only at night but throughout the day as well. I had increased urination and the sedation was so severe that I couldn't wake up when I had to urinate, which was extremely embarassing

02 Nov 2012 I was on resperdal. It wasn't working so I was switched to seroquel. Its night and day. Instead of being disorganized, manic, and rushed I feel more relaxed and less BI-Polar! I sleep like a child, and wake without drowsiness. I take 600 mg at bed. Thumbs up from me!

17 Jun 2011 What started as immediate Mild RLS at 50 mg increased rapidly to severe spams in legs, arms and face at 200mg. Severe irritability and light sensitivity. Increased thirst, hunger, urination. By the end of the fourth week, I felt like there was a huge lump in my throat and my neck was very stiff. I lowered the dosage over the fifth week and stopped taking i one week ago. I'm still having the problems but not as severe. In the 5 weeks I took the medicine, I gained 16 pounds. I went to the doctor yesterday and she switched me to Saphris.
