My sister takes take her tegretal and seroquel. Do these have a horrible impact upon each other? She seems like she's drunk all day. I believe it's the seroquel. I just want her to have some normalcy in her life and she definitely cant function like this.

Hello, Laura! How is your sister doing?

I'm glad you posted your concern, because she does need to speak to her doctor. She could be developing an issue with serotonin or something else, which has the potential to be dangerous.

Normal side effects to Seroquel include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth.

How long has she been taking them?

A month is long enough for it the serotonin to possibly be building up in her brain and causing such problems.

Has she spoken to her doctor, yet?

I take topamax and vimpat. Helps you with energy and any little pains, even helps you lose weight. But it makes your face and hands feel tingly and that kinda feels weird. It also makes any cokes taste flat. And you're not all that hungry. Like you'll eat some but like a child size plate.
