Have been having trouble getting to work since new meds started
From this study (3 years ago):
A load of medications for a Bipolar ... Seroquel was the most effective at 300mg. BUT ... THE MOST INTOLERABLE ... My body gained 40lbs from 130lb.
I night binged out of control ... over 1000 calories at one 2am sitting in front of the computer ... realy ... felt like a zombie during the day ... slept almost fine. When I decided to stop taking Seroquel ... the doctor's plan was to wein me off slowly. The withdrawal ... was nothing less than horrible ... headache, ringing in the ears, nasuea, no sleep for days, a visit to pysch. hospital. Trying different medications was a short list ... because we new what would work and what would not ... back on 100mg Seoquel for sleep and mania. Yes, full blown. Can't mess with the sleep. At what price do we all suffer the slings and arrows of modern chemistry which in realty is based on synergism. How all the medications I'm taking above are going to stablize me with intolerable effects. Am a 57 year women with hope ... with family and medical team behind her.
