Well I had a huge paragraph on all my symptoms but somehow only 1 partial sentence posted so...
Tried many meds to get some kind of normal. For the last 6 months been taking effexor xr 150mg, Stratera 60mg each am and Ativan 2mg, Neurontin 300mg each pm for anxiety/depression possible bipolar. Results were not satisfactory so dropped effexor xr and added Seroquel xr 300mg at 5pm with a slight change to diagnosis to bipolar depression. Took 300mg for a week. Extreme agitation, extreme drowsyness, rls, unable to wake up in the am. Friday was my first dose at 600mg and the symptoms are ten times worse. Rls (restless leg syndrome) is so bad it keeps me up most of the night, problem is that I am far from awake. I wander the house trying to eat a bowl of cereal with a pair of tongs yes, I said tongs lol. Ultimately I end up dumpi g it everywhere. I wake people up and talk in some unknown jibberish. I have vivid dreams, night terrors. An extreme amount of cussing, screaming in my sleep. All this as my husband lays next to me. I really never even started to feel halfass normal until it was almost time to take it again that evening which was last night. I never did take that dose, I skipped it. I can't see any light at the end of the tunnel. Am I actually expected to live like this? Is this normal? Will it get better? I so need to connect with somneone, anyone who can understand.
