By taking beads out of capsule. No problems so far other than severe headaches in the morning that are getting better with each day. The next drug my pdoc wants me to change is stop geodon and start seroquil. I'm so afraid of switching these two meds due to the fact I have tried twice and had severe reactions to seroquil (I'm on geodon 20 mg twice and changing to seroquil 25mg) Meaning increased heart rate, severe headache and severe mood changes, even to the point of becoming very angry and hostile with family members. In short I'm afraid I'll never be able to take this med. My question is how long do I need to try to take the seroquil before throwing in the towel. I just don't think I can take this med any more. I have appointment on 2-12 for follow up with doc. Thanks for any advice.
