DOSE:
25 mg oral Pharms - Quetiapine (pill / tablet)

BODY WEIGHT: 90 kg


I was prescribed these pills by my doctor for general anxiety/panic attacks and having trouble sleeping, but I feel these pills aren't for me and here's why:

First time I took these pills it was a 25mg dose (one pill), it was around 9:00 pm and after taking them I started to feel unintrested at whatever I was doing at the time. So the natural thing for me to do next was go to sleep. I really did fall asleep really quick which was unusual for me.

The following night I had very strange dreams which I could remember almost perfectly the next morning. I recall dreaming of walking on a misty bridge built on a sea of pig fat and dinosaur bones. When I woke up and the whole day after I still felt sleepy and unintrested in my surrounding.

The next evening I did something stupid and downed half a tab of those suckers because I've read somewhere they have recreational propertys.That was a big mistake
I did something stupid and downed half a tab of those suckers because I've read somewhere they have recreational propertys.That was a big mistake
even if I did feel some kind of a high but I quickly passed out and was in a coma like sleep for 2 days. After the coma I was feeling mentally sick, like I've lost the interest of all things around me that make me happy. All I could think of is going back to sleep, back to the dream world.

After a week of this I quit the pills because the dreams were becoming too real and disturbing me, I don't know if I have to blame myself or my doctor because these drugs are not something I would take daily. As someone dealing with trauma being trapped in my own mind for the whole night or longer is not something that is fun and being awake is even more horrible.
