  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • Psychiatrist is reducing Seroquel dosage and my depression is increasing. Reason for decrease is pre diabetic sugar levels, but diabetes is in my family.I read anti depressants can increase depression in bipolar 2 patients. The studies I've read shoe no clear answers. How do I decide? I am tired of being non functional.

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • My son began having autistic tantrums at school & would pound his head on the floor; neurologist prescribed Celexa to stop self-injurious behavior. After 2 years,doctor changed prescription to Lexapro. Experienced pain in feet/lower legs upon standing/walking more than 1 hour. Age 11 (2006), nerve disfunction began (said his feet felt "sparkly"). I noticed left leg bowing out at knee when he walked down stairs. Began severe muscle spasms when laid down to go to sleep. The spasms/nerve pain became severe & increased difficulty falling/staying asleep. Spasms continued through 1st 1-2 hours of sleep; spasms drew his leg/legs up like a frog. Slept through spasms; they occurred every night & followed a full-body "jerk". Spasms always occurred on the left, & right leg would draw up into a frogleg position. Doctor added Seroquel for severe insomnia. Podiatrist diagnosed shortened achiles tendons in feet/ankles. 6 months after the spasms began, left foot began to change & severe episodes of memory loss occurred(he did not where he was, who he was or who his teachers, classmates, or I were). Would scream & hit his head with his fists. Doctor suspected ALD; tests were negative. W/in 4 months (age 12), left foot deformed into clubfoot/calf smaller. Diagnosed w/spasticity, dystonia, cerebral palsy. Since achiles tendon/club foot developed, can't stand/walk more than 20-30 minutes without foot/leg pain. Doctors suspect neuromuscular disorder but have not diagnosed specific type. 2008-2009, had botox injections in calves but treatment stopped working. Had 2 foot surgeries in 2009 to reposition left foot & release achiles tendon. Left foot much shorter, wider & thicker than right. Developed dystonia/spasticity in forearms/hands 2008. Taking Tizanidine and Mirapex for help control/lesson the spasming & nerve disfunction since 2008. Weaned off Seroquel & Lexapro (2011/2012), because Seroquel made drowsy/caused Acanthosis nigricans; Lexapro made confused.

    How do his thumb nails look? Are they absent or split, or have a triangular lunulae? If yes to any of these questions, please research a genetic disease called Nail Patella Syndrome. Myself and 3 of my 4 children have it. Good luck!
