I just would like to know if this medication is for schitz patients then why is it perscribed for so meany other things? What exactly is it for? I know someone who is on it but thier diagnosis is nothing close to schitz. I am concerned about this and would really like some feed back. P.S. this person is only 15 and has other diabilities. ## Sometimes they give Seroquel for ADHD, insomnia, etc. My doctor wanted to give it to my son, but I found out that Seroquel is a major factor in Diabetes and I have Diabetes in my family, so I had him not even start it. ## Seroquel contains the active ingredient Quetiapine, it is often used to treat various mental health issues, such as Schizophrenia, Depression, and Bipolar Disorder. Most medications can be used treat multiple conditions. The FDA lis...

Coming off Invega Sustenna

Hi, I was given Invega Sustenna at 100mg a month for 10 months since Dec 5th. My last shot was on August 29th 2013. The medication gave me severe anhedonia and I have lost the motivation and willpower to do anything. I can no longer experience joy, happiness, or pleasure from anything I do and I have no interest in doing anything. I constantly feel restless and uneasy and I just can't shake this feeling away no matter what. All of these started about a week after my first IV. I have been off this medication for almost 3 months now and I have yet to feel any improvements. I have read that it has a long half life of 25-49 days and that it can stay in your body for 300 days. So does that mean I will have to wait a year to start feeling better? Any info on someone who has been off this ...

Rexulti working well for me

Having good results. Feel the best I have felt in a long time. Started 0.5 for one week now finishing my 1st week of 1mg. I don't seem to have any side effects. Very happy with this medication so far. Fingers crossed. ## Have you experienced any side effects, yet? The FDA lists its typical ones as possibly including nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, weight gain and feeling restless. Is anyone else on this medication? ## Hi. Nothing out of the ordinary. Dry mouth. And sometimes dizzy when I get up to fast. Have you tried it yet? It's worth trying. ## Did it do anything good for you though?

HOW LONG TAKE THE EFFECT FROM METHAMPHETAMINE TO WARE OFF SO I CAN TAKE MY PAIN MEDS NOW..PAINFUL

I STUPIDLY HAD A BOWL OF METHAMPHETAMINE AFTER 8 YRS CLEAN FROM THAT HORRIBLE STUFF. LOL. IT'S BEEN ALMOST 10HRS SINCE.. BUT I'M IN SO MUCH PAIN N AIN'T SLEPT N 48 HOURS.. GETTING PSYCHOSIS LOL.. CAN I TAKE MY REGULAR DOSE MEDS FOR PAIN NOW TO TRY N REST? ..PLZ ANY THOUGHTS... #ASHAMEDOFMAKINGTHATDECISION ## Was there a specific medication in particular that you were planning on taking after the methamphetamine wore off? I only ask because you would actually need to check and see if methamphetamine poses any serious risks with whatever it is that you might be considering. Some things like Oxycodone, could actually be very dangerous when mixed, but without any name to go off of I really can't help you past that point, since drug interaction checkers also require you to be...

Plus a high rise in blood pressure. I don't drink or do illeagle drugs. I stopped takeing the drug and feel 90% better. The only thing is i can't sleep now, i get about 2 hrs a night. ## I've been taking seroquel/quetiapine. What can i do for sleep when I'm not taking these drugs? ## Take Diphenhydramine.

In recent days, I stopped regularly checking-in with my doctor. ## Take an actual sleep aid, unless you a...

Lapse in medication

If Caregivers lapse the 300 mg twice a day, Fazaclo for a week, can it be started up again without loss of effectiveness. 36 year old daughter on Clozaril, taken off due to dangerous levels of white blood count and put on a national list, then put back on Fazaclo by another doctor, saying it was a safer form. Daughter went into hospital and was given emergency injection of Haldol and was off Fazaclo two days. Went to a group home, and the blood test took a week to come back, off Fazaclo for 7 days, during time receiving Halperidol injections IM. I was told that the Clozaril loses its ability to work if it is allowed to lapse. ## It isn't that Clozaril entirely loses its ability to work, but that it works best when taken regularly, so a constant level of it is maintained in the body....

Abilify and Chronic Pain Relief

Hello, Has anyone experienced a relief in chronic pain while on Abilify. I am convinced it is this medication that relieved my chronic neck pain. This has given me the idea it might help my mother who is on a daily dose of morphine. I want to bring this up to her Dr but don't want to sound crazy. What do you think? Is it possible? ## Hello, Mila! How are you and your mom? It is not a recognized effect of Abilify, so such use hasn't been approved, but yes, it is possible. Most psychiatric medications have been shown to have an affect on some types of pain. I can't say whether or not it will help your mother, that depends on what is causing her pain, however, there is a chance it could help. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## I think I'm going to mention it to h...

Olanzapine disaster

Hi to all. I took Olanzapine 10mg for 6 Yrs & suffered a very strange & worrying side effect due to the Drug. After 3 Months of taking it, I literally stopped sleeping any more than 2 hours a night, characterized by no sleepiness prior to sleep onset (just blacked out) & no feelings of fatigue either physically or mentally despite days without sleep. I also had no drug effect from multiple Drugs, such as Alcohol, even after drinking 2 Litres of strong Wine, rather just no respiratory depression (very worrying), virtually no intoxication & no bodily effects such as warming effect, gate change (Cerebellar). I became so worried & distressed by this that I set out to withdraw from all Drugs & Alcohol in the hope that the fore mentioned extremely strange & bafflin...
