I have been on seroquel for over two years and my insurance now wont pay for it. but they say they are putting me on risperidone and wont give me seroquel to wean myself off. the last shrink i had before this one took me off seroquel and two or three other thingsthat i was on for manic depressive/bipolar disorder, at the same time cold turky and i went through withdraw really bad for a few months and was in the hospital because of it. Now that i finally got it back and was finally able to sleep again theyre taking me off. im really really scared of going through withdraw because withdraws can kill if they are severe enough. Without it, i cant sleep for days. then after about four days ill sleep for one night and have the bloodiest most grusome nightmares you can imagine and when im awake, without my meds i see things and hear things that arent there. and im finally feeling somewhat sane and now theyre taking it away from me again...
