Re: Quetiapine?

I've been on 600mg a day since last May or June and I don't really have any side effects. It doesn't really help much with sleep as far as I can tell but it just sort of takes the edge off things. To be honest though I seem to have a high tolerence for these things. I used to take 20mg of Olanzapine...

Re: im useless

I get that feeling often myself and often cancel appointments that I know will help me in the long run. Just remember you are not useless, everyone feels like that at times. Have you ever done any CBT? I have and found that it helps lots. Just try and force yourself to do things even if you don't wa...

Re: Hospital and Clozapine, help.

Hey guys. I've not been around for a while as i was put in hospital 6 weeks ago and i'm still there. I've been told I have treatment resistant schizophrenia and I've been put on clozapine. It sounds like such a scary drug. I've been told by medical professionals it is like gold and will definitely ...

Re: Psychiatric diagnosis

I know I was only diagnosed with Schizophrenia after I had been in hospital for 6 weeks or so. I was quite surprised at the time as no one had really talked to me about it.

Re: doing really badly

I'm glad I read through this thread as I can relate to what you are saying. I've completely lost all my friends and feel completely left out of society. I still feel completely paranoid whenever I go outside and am having issues getting over my last psychotic episode. I just want to be away from all...

Finding it hard to cope - re: psychosis

So I've been diagnosed with Psychosis but even though everyone is telling me that these things are not happening I can't accept it. The medication is not doing what it is supposed too and these things are still happening at regular intervals. It makes me so incredibly angry and frustrated that every...

Re: TRIG* dont know where to turn

First of all you sound like you are doing a great job as a parent given your current problems. You should be proud of the fact that even though you are going through hell you can still manage to put your children first. That is something that few people manage and I have a lot of respect for people ...

Re: Not entirely sure what is happening

300mg's of Quetiapine is really killing my concentration. I just end up wasting time. I have no idea if that is considered a high dose or what? But blimey it really kills your motivation to do things.

Re: Not entirely sure what is happening

Yeah I guess you are right. I just hate uncertainty and I'm still not sure how things will pan out over the next couple of weeks.

Not entirely sure what is happening

I've been to a psychiatrist and been prescribed Quetiapine and some antidepressants but haven't really been told what is going on (I had an hour long meeting). I have another appointment that they want my parents to attend as well. I've been taking it for a week now and feel more relaxed and less sc...
