Added 11 Mar 2014:
of major depression and was in the hospital. My PMD started me on lamotrigine for Bipolar. I recently had a manic episode and was told to stop taking the Fluoxetine and Trazadone and start Seroquel. I am always nervous about stating a new medication. I know that everyone reacts different to meds., but I was curious about the side effects people have experienced. I also am not thrilled about the weight gain. I also wondered about anxiety, since I don't think either of my current meds help that.
Hi, Kam! I'm sorry that you've been through so much, but this is a great place to ask questions or just get some moral support. We're all here because we have/had the same problems.
I have to say I absolutely love my Seroquel ~ I've been on different meds all my life and it's the only thing that's worked. I've never had side effects from any drugs but I did have to make sure I got 8-9hrs sleep or I was a bit foggy til my morning coffee kicked in. This happens more at the lower doses like when I started taking it, now I take 400mg and I'm fine and I sleep well. Seroquel XR doesn't make you as tired at night.
I gained weight like crazy on Zyprexa, Geodin, and Abilify. I've been taking Seroquel for 2yrs now ~ haven't gained an ounce.
Best wishes and I hope this helps you a bit. WCV
