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 ...

started on seroquel for alcohol addiction

I was 1st prescribed seroquel when I entered treatment for alcohol addiction, anxiety, and depression. I am proud to say I am now 5-1/5 years sober and wondering if or why I still need to be on this medicine. I take 100mg @ night along w/ 50mg of Zoloft. My biggest concern is if I will ever get to sleep w/o aid ## If you've been taking them for years, actually even if you've just been taking one of them for years, then the best way to stop taking them would be to do a slow taper. Otherwise, they tend to cause rebound effects, so you may experience symptoms such as severe depression, insomnia, irritability and etc. Learn more Seroquel details here. Learn more Zoloft details here. If you do it that way, then there will most likely be a brief period of insomnia and some other mild ...

Can anyone tell me good things about this medication?? ## I've been taking Seroquel for almost a year, and it has changed my life for the better!! Stick with it, it will make you very sleepy at first, but you will get used to it and it is a life saver!! ## My doc tried me on 200 mg 3 times a day and they kick my ass. I took a bong outside at 6 in the morning, in my underwear. My son woke up and ask me what was wrong. I ran in the wall 4 times in a row. he sent me to bed and that the the last time I ever took them damn things. ## i started taking seroquil a few yrs ago for a sleep disorder-i couldnt shut my brain off at night. the dr started me on 100 mg and they did kick me, so i cut them in half, take 1 every ...

Seroquel Questions and Slow taper?

Hello, I am a 48 year old woman and I have been on 100mg of seroquel at night for 8 years for depression and sleep. I need to slowly taper off this. It seems it is making me even more tired and I sleep and sleep for very long hours. I have a lot of issues with it. I have a few questions. I take the 100mg tablet at night. I also have some of the 25 mg and was going to use those to taper. But even though I know 4 of the 25 mg tablets are 100mg, It seems to work different when taken that way? Anyone else notice this? Should I just try to cut up the 100mg and taper that? I wanted to take 75mg and take the other 25 mg tablet and cut it up. I want to do a very slow taper. I would be happy to taper 25 mg over 2.5 to 4 months. I have tapered off other things in the past that I took for fibromya...

My Mother Is A Schizophrenia Patient Aged 65she Was Given Chlorpromazine For Period Of 13 Years And Recently Doctor Changed To Olanzepineshe Did Wellb

kindly advise is it safe to use qutipine to a 65 year old patient as she is drowsy all throughout the day.she was on chloropromazine for 13 years recently changed to olanzepine which worked well.but doctor has changed to qutipine which is acting like a sedative.what shall we do ## Slowly decrease the dose ## I would try zyprexa again, without the clozeril. Another hip drug is mirtazapine. The use of seroquel is indicated for geriatric dosing - just keep it al low as possible because it makes just about anyone very sleepy especially at the lower geriatric doses.

Does a child need Abilify 5 Mg, Bupropion 75mg, and Chlorpromazine 25mg for Bipolar and ADHD?

My foster child is on Ability 5 mg, Bupropion 75 mg, Chlorpromazine 25mg 3 times per day for bipolar and ADHD. Does he need these meds that seem to do the same thing? I have the sense since he has been with me that he does not have anger problems any more than any other 11 year old child. He did tell me that he used anger to get away from the home he was in because he was being beaten by an older child. I will admit he may be adhd but bipolar you can't make me believe. ## I'd suggest discussing it with his doctor and/or getting a second opinion. It is an unfortunate fact that many children end up over medicated and many doctors don't review what the child is taking and just leave them on them, rather than do a review and see if it is needed any longer. Have you talked to any...

Risperidone 1 Mg Better Than Seriquel 100mg

I was taken seoquel 100mg 3 times a day but got me sick an put me to abilify 30mg than my doctor took me off an put me on risperidone 1mg. but seem most likely med's really not working better an I just got these "risperidone 1mg. but i also take Lexapro an Zyprexa5 mg as in today but also need to know is it better of which of all I be taken to help me. I also take Clonazepam 1mg as for "klonopin" an Trazodone 150 mg ## It is actually difficult to say what medication(s) may be better at helping any certain person. They can all affect everyone differently and what may work wonderfully for one person might not work, at all, in another person. The only thing you can really do is try the medications your doctor suggests and see what works for you, without making you ill from ...

How high???

I've just started Seroquel 25mg,so far so good, but I'm sure that has 2 B the lowest dosage.I've heared others R on 200-300mg. a day. ## My doctor put me on 800mg and It's not good. ## It makes me like a zombie your on it you'll see. ## I started taking seroquel about 2 weeks ago and i am taking 300 mg a day, it makes me real hungry and very tired but makes me feel calm ## Yes, it can be dosed in amounts up to 400mgs a dose, and up to 800mgs per day. The dosage varies according to someone's response to it, and the severity of the condition being treated. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

for alhemzmers spelled wrong ## For the past few months, the assisted living center my Aunt was staying in in NY was treating her with Haldon. Last week we moved her to an assisted living center in Atlanta so she would be closer to family. The new assisted living center thinks Haldon is too strong and wants to switch her to another drug. Does anybody have any experience with a Haldon substitute? If so, was it successful and what was it? Many thanks! ## Are you referring to the medication Haldol? If so, then yes, there are other options available, please speak to her doctors. ## Respridone is pretty close to haldon as my doctor tells me I was on resperidone for about 4 months with great results but my iinsurance ran out and can no longer afford the drug so my doctor put me on haldon goin...

seroquel experience insomnia, and possible cure

I like to make a public account of my expereience with seroquel or / quetiapine. To be as frank as possible this drug should only be used as your last resort as the negatives far out weigh the positives in my opinion. I took this drug to treat my mild to moderate tactile hallucinations which developed from extreme stress earlier in 2013. I took 25mg of seroquel (50mg cut in half) for about 2 weeks and then I took a full tablet of 50 mg of seroquel for another 2 weeks and then because of the side effects of mild kindey/liver pain plus mild heart pain i began to taper off the drug for another 2 weeks taking about 15mg of seroquel. I'm a 34 year old male pretty athletic and i was really suprised that i was getting all this liver, heart discomfort while on the drug. Also i noticed my jo...

Seroquel for insomnia

I have been taking Seroquel for a year now for insomnia. Anybody else take Seroquel for this? I have looked around and it doesn't even seem that Seroquel is normally given to someone for this. ## I also have been taking seroquel for insomnia for about a year and a half now. I must say, my Dr tried every sleeping pill out there on me. This is the only thing that has worked for me, I've never had a sleepless night since. I was also being treated for panic attacks and depression at the time. But all my life I had trouble sleeping, I'm talking up till 5 or 6 am with a million things racing through my mind (stupid stuff) but not any more. My doc told me that in low doses, it does work on some people for insomnia. ## Good information ## My son has OCD and was put on Seroquel for s...

Does anyone have any knowledge about a medication VRAYLAR

VRAYLAR, My doctor has prescribed this medication to me yesterday the starting dose is 1.5mg. I know nothing about it. I was diagnosed by a different doctor for adhd and I am taking adderall ir 20mg x2. She seems to think possibly i could have been misdiagnosed by a different doctor. Anyways she claims that the VRAYLAR would give me abundance of energy?. Humm could this be true? More energy than my adderall? Which I'm not ready to give up!. Please any feedback would be great thx ## I have a friend who is really bipolar and he was given that medication and the change in him was amazing. He’s calm now, where he used to be completely off the rails, or in a depressive fog. He loves it. It’s so drastic people ask him what new meds he’s on. ## FYI I have ADD and Chronic ...

The first week he was taking 25mg, then 50mg & only heard voices a little, now going on his 3rd week and almost up to 200mg and the voices are stronger and getting a little violent. Is this normal? ## Hi Dennis. I'm here to help. I have a 19 yr old daughter in your same situation. This medicine is poison point blank and the symptoms and side effects only get worse the higher the milligrams and the longer the individuals is on this medication. Stop allowing them to give yr son more and try to talk to someone about winging him off this medicine slowly. I can tell you they're not gonna recommend this because they make a killing off of making us sick off this medicine telling...

Best medicine for schizophrenia

Looking to find out the best medicine to treat schizophrenia. ## Hello, Valerie! How are you? There is really no 'best medicine' so to speak. It depends on the person and what works for them. Not all medications work for everyone that tries them, which is why they are usually several options to try in any given treatment category. For example, I have high blood pressure and while the 'best' medication for many people is Metoprolol, it made me very sick and I had to stop taking it. It also didn't significantly lower my blood pressure. That said, what medications have you tried? Some people do better with an older medication, such as Risperdal, though as reported by the FDA, it can cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, somnolence and weight gain. But others ha...

risperdal for severe hallucinations / bipolar

Hi, I am 25 years old and have just been prescribed risperdal For my severe auditory, visual, and tactile hallucinations from bipolar mania psychosis. I went to therapy today and explained about my previous week, full of terrifying and vivid hallucinations and the delusional State that followed- I did not believe my husband when he attempted to explain that I was hallucinating and was sure that he would have me institutionalized (yet again), when that wasn't the case. For example: I actually believed that mirrors were a gateway to a different spirit plane and watched as a winged demon by the name of Riley Blue came through and attempted to claim my soul if he successfully persuaded me to commit suicide. I clawed my face up when he touched my cheek. Then came August, a feathered demo...
