Paige (2 years ago):

No, I have no way to go off Seroquel, which has caused diabetes, because I get extremely serious sysmtpoms of shizophrenia I never had before, even when going off slowly. I believe that I have traumatic brain injury from Seroquel: As a result, I have to take about 100 mg per day so I don't go into shock.
