Dopaquel And Nuzak

JeremI Says:

Hi, I'm Jeremy from South Africa, I was diagnosed with Clinical Depressive Disorder, and my doctor put me on Nuzak 20mg for the past month. I think 2 weeks into the month, seeing that my sleeping patterns, paranoia and anxiety levels weren't norming he put me on Dopaquel 25mg (to increase dosage every 7 days till 200mg, I'm currently on 100mg ). I've been on both now for quite some time now but my only concern is I've gotten to a level where I think I've built a tollerence for both these drugs and no longer feel the effects them (cause my sleeping patterns have decreased once more). I'm too concerned about this, what advice can I kindly get?

What time period do you consider as being on them for quite some time?

It usually takes about 4 to 5 weeks for both of these medications to reach their full level of efficacy in your body, so 2 weeks is far to soon to judge how they are working for you. Dopaquel contains Quetiapine, and Nuzak contains the active ingredient Fluoxetine.

The FDA lists their typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight changes.

Is there anything else you are doing that might be affect your sleeping patterns?

Hi. I think its best to see a psychiatrist for your meds etc. I was on nuzak 40 and it didnt help anymore. I went to see a psychiatrist instead of my gp. I'm on venlor now and dopaquel 100. It works perfectly. The sun is shining and im smiling. Also, nuzak is very very old. There are better meds on the market. Regards, Alison. All the best...
