RedRobin on Mar, 3, 2014:
In 1998, I was prescribed Seroquel for Major Depression. My dosage started at 200mg take 4 pills/capsules at bedtime. In 2003 the dosage was decreased to 200mg take 2 at bedtime. I gradually took myself off the medicine completely in 2010. My family and friends refer to 1998-2010 as my 12 year coma. I have minimal memories of those 12 years. I had to re-learn how to do routines activities. Such as, how to wash, dry and fold laundry, how the work the coffee maker, can opener, tea maker, toaster over, microwave over dish washer etc. I had to re-learn how to drive a car, do computer work, pay bills, finances, taxes even buying stamps and groceries. I was a financial analyst for over 10 years and had a 2 hr commute to and from work. I’m still a bit uneasy about driving on the highway, but I’m getting there. It’s now 2014 and I still don’t remember weddings, funerals, special events and 12 years of my life memories. Additionally, I was diagnosed with diabetes in 2010 my sugar level was over 750. I’m currently on three medications to try to control it. During those 12 years I was sean by 4 different psychiatrists. Not one doctor understood what was going on. PLEASE learn from my experience! YOU are in control of YOUR HEALTH. Don't rely on doctors ONLY. Ask questions and don't stop until you trust the answer. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
