my boyfriend takes seroquel and geodon and his heart beats really fast and he is zombiefied. it is supposed to help him and i dont feel like it helps at all. he is not himself and he can barely function while on it.
First of all I AM NOT A DOCTOR ..OK
What does your boyfriend suffer from schizophrenia or bipolar disorder?
How long has he been on these meds and what dose is he on?
For how long has he been a zombie?
He is taking very strong or as you would say hardcore meds gedeon which is an antipsychotic and seroQuel which an atypical antipsychotic.
NOW, AS TIME GOES BY HIS ORGANISM WILL START TO GET USED TO THE EFFECTS OF THESE MEDS AND THE EFFECTS WILL AFFECT HIM AS BAD AS THEY ARE NOW, AND ALSO HIS TOLERANCE LEVELS WILL INCREASE ... SO STAND BY HIM ... I CAN TELL YOU TRULY LOVE HIM.
IF YOU NOTICE ANYTHING UNUSUAL ... OUT OF THE ORDINARY..WEIRD, ETC... CONTACT HIS PSYACHIATRIST WITHOUT HESITATION THAT MEANS ASAP.
I WILL ..FOR NOW NOT GIVE YOU THE LIST OF ALL THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS BECAUSE IT WILL MAKE THINGS WORSE AND YOU WILL BE MORE WORRIED... YOU NEED TO BE FOCUSED AND ALERT OK.
I AM 41 MALE BIPOLAR I TAKE SEROQUEL AND MANY OTHER LET US SAY HARDCORE MEDS, AND I UNDERSATND YOU WHEN YOU MENTION THE WORD ZOMBIE BECAUSE THAT WAS ME FOR SOME TIME SO ,LET´S SAY IT IS RATHER "NORMAL" (FROM MY EXPERIENCE) I ALSO SUFER FROM OTHER"CONDITIONS" I DO NOT HAVE ALL THE ANSWER I THINK NO ONE DOES.

AND REMMEMBER I AM NOT A DOCTOR..OK
So I will add you as a friend you do the same , keep me posted, you can ask as many questions as you want ... anytime ... anyday and remmember anyone who believes that has all the answers is the biggest fool.
Take care of him and youself he needs you more than ever.
Until later... from a caring individual.
Hi, I'm bipolar with schizo behaviors. I have been on both these meds but not at the same time. Each works differently. Both have some bad side effects. I would definately contact his
Dr. and ask some specific questions about why he is needed both at the same time. I too was lethargic and had a very low quality of life.
