My psychiatris wants me to increase the serequel so rapidly. 300mg one night and next night up to 600mg ! I got madopar for the restless legs but last night was still a horror on the 300mg! Has anyone else got problems to cope with serequel? It gives me a slurred speach, restless leg syndrom with muscle twitching, and forgetting what I wanted to say, staggering when I walk. I don't know what to do! I told my psych all those symptoms but I felt she didn’t take me serious as I was a bit elevated when I spoke to her
Hi, dagduncan! The seroquel dosage is usually raised by increments over a period of at least a week. I'd advise that you speak with your doctor to determine if he/she wants to increase you to near maximum dosage almost overnight! Of course, it's the doctor's perogative if he/she feels it necessary for a single hypomanic episode but just to be sure that there hasn't been a misunderstanding as that dose could turn you into a zombie.
Best of luck with this, dag! Wildcat
