Seroquel From Hell
The first (and last) time I took Seroquel, it scared the shit out of me. By the way I have bipolar disorder, mainly know as manic-depression. For those who dont't know nothing about it, is a mood disorder characterized by extreme changes in mood, from depressive to overactive, and sometimes also psychotic symptoms such as fear of persecution and in the worse case hallucinations.
I was prescribed Seroquel by my psychiatrist to keep control of my mixed episodes, where I'm extremely agitated and feel anxiety, suicidal ideation, panic and paranoia. What he didn't tell me is how powerful this drug can be, especially if not taken in slowly increasing doses.
I was feeling very bad at the time and took 100 mg. At first I didn't feel nothing, but than it just hit me with such a force that I barely made it to the bed. I was feeling drowsy, like I was walking in a fog, and sick. I fell asleep for about six hours, when the phone rang. It was my boyfriend and he couldn't have called in a worse time.
I was still feeling very angry and could barely put one though after the other. I just jelled for no reason at all and hung up on him. I don't even remember what I said, but it must have been terrible since he broke up with me (he didn't know anything about the bipolar thing and maybe it's better so). Seroquel has helped to destroy part of my life :/ and I would never ever take it again!
