  • 13yr old autistic daughter diagnosed with cerebral palsy after taking seroquel
    My beautiful 13yrold daughter who was diagnosed with Autism at 2 yrs old, never suffered from ANY physical disabilities prior to being put on a very large dose of SEROQUEL at age 11. Within less than a year, she went from running and jumping on her trampoline to being diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy!! She now has to be cared for in a facility, relying on being pushed in a wheelchair for outside transfer, and wearing a foam helmet to protect her from injury during her daily falls. Two separate neurologists label her with cerebral palsy and will not go any further in diagnosis. Genetic studies show no explanation, and the children's hospital are the only one willing to indicate the possibility of the medications she was put on by a mental health facility as the possible cause. I have long avoided placing her on heavy medications for the 11 years that she was in my care, and this did not occur until she went into her father's care temporarily while I had major surgery. Over a period of6-8 months, she began to develop a limp and became so unsteady she could not walk 5 feet without bumping into things and falling. When I cared for her again and saw the medications she had been placed on, I am not ashamed to say I not only researched them, but took one of the Seroquel to see how it affected ME! I was over 80 pounds heavier than my daughter at the time, yet found myself completely incapacitated for almost 48hrs!! I immediately took her to the children's hospital in our area where she was hospitalized for over a week and treated by a TEAM of physicians ranging from Orthopedics to Neurologists. From CT Scans, complete blood work, MRIS, etc., nothing could explain any cause for her issues except "the possibility of the medications". They began to lower her Seroquel dose then sent her to the state mental hospital 4 hours away where she stayed for 2 months while undergoing the genetic studies and another neurologist who continued to lower the Seroquel and completely take her off it. My beautiful girl is now left with a lifetime physical disability.
  • Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
    I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
  • Bipolar patient extremely violent on seraquel
    I have been diagnosed bipolar for over 10 years. 3 years ago I was taken off of topamax and my seraquel was upped to 300 mg from 100 because I was pregnant. I was very violent! Punching, breaking stuff, in jail, in the psych ward. Yes pregnancy and bipolar are not a perfect combination. I too thought it was the hormones. My husband and split several times over me punching him. We moved to a state cross country so there was no more family drama. Nothing worked! Over the last 3 years my life has been hell! I happen to run out of my seroquel (tg) it took 2 weeks to arrive. In that time my body went thru horrible withdrawals. I vowed I wouldn't take it any longer. I've been seraquel free for 2 months. I'm now on gabapentin and proud to say I have no anger issues! Not 1 punch has
    been thrown. I feel like a totally different person.
  • Seroquel and iron deficiency?
    I've been taking Seroquel for about four year, I have been having symptoms similar to hypothyroidism, and just found out I have an iron deficiency. The doctor said my platelets are smaller than average, and it is possible that my grandmother is anemic. But in trying to study Seroquel I kept finding things that made me wonder if Seroquel could be linked to iron deficiency.
  • Transition from mirtazapine to cymbalta (bipolar ii) 6 week duration taken in conjunction with seroquel, propranalol and implanon
    In early September I approached my Psychiatrist to report that I was having sleep paralysis episodes as well as insatiable appetite. I had put on about 20lb in the space of 6 months since the sleep paralysis started.

    My Psychiatrist opted to wean me off the Mirtazapine and onto Cymbalta. I have now been on 60mg of Cymbalta for about 4 weeks and completely titrated off the Mirtazapine.

    I have noted that since switching to Cymbalta that I no longer have the insatiable appetite, nor have I had any further sleep paralysis episodes (though I have had a brain MRI to rule out any physiological issues - yet to receive results).

    I have noticed that I have had mild to moderate rolling nausea with the Cymbalta and that I now have food aversions. Food does not interest me as much anymore and I find that certain foods (mostly processed snacks) are no longer palatable. I also find that I become full after much smaller meal portions.

    I have found that I can no longer drink wine or spirits because they now taste awful however I can still tolerate certain brands of beer. I also no longer enjoy drinking cola.

    I am also on the Implanon Implant. I have had this implant inserted for about 12 months and my cycles have been rather regular. Since starting the Cymbalta I have had some breakthrough bleeding yet my periods have not been as painful, though they have been heavier and longer.

    My Psychiatrist will commence titrating me off the Seroquel in about two weeks and onto Topamax as it is his belief it will be less sedating than the Seroquel and that it will hopefully help as a mood stabiliser, treat my migraines and allow me to come off the Propranolol. he also hopes that I am able to loose some of the weight gained since the sleep paralysis episodes started.

    As a side note regarding the Propranolol, I have naturally low blood pressure and I find while Propranalol is generally an effective migraine prophylactic, (I do get some breakthrough migraines) it does make my blood pressure even lower which leads to dizziness and faintness when I stand up too quickly from a recumbent position.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I have lost almost all memory while on these medications and I cannot remember that part of my life while on them I can only remember bits and pieces. I was on all this medication due to my drug induced psycosis and to stop my paranoia and wanting to harm myself and others. This was over 12 years ago and approx 4 years I have lost but happy to say that tis present day life is great.
