This drug caused all sorts of issues. Caused a stroke. Lost all feeling in the mouth and left side of my face and body. Short term memory has been shot since taking this medication.

I have been taking 400 mg. of this medication at night for 5 years. Helps really well with insomnia and ruminating of the mind, but I have no quality of life and have suicidal thoughts when even the smallest of things doesn't go well.

Although it helps with my depression I have gained over 50lbs. My appetite is out of control. I always have a headache in the mornings. My doctor is slowly taking me off it. Recently I started having hallucinations and they have really scared me, another reason he said it was time to get off of it. Hopefully with a new med it will help my bipolar and weight issues.

I started my journey with Seroquel 200mg and Lamictal 25mg after a year long battle of emotional problems, depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts without the help of medications. Immediately after I took my prescribed meds back in Oct 2013, they stopped my suicidal thoughts and overactive thoughts, just at the right time before I decide to do anything rash. My Seroquel doses was altered, at var ... Show Full Comment
