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.

    I'm a 20 year old female. I'm currently taking Wellbutrin for my depression and Seroquel for biolar disorder. I told my doctor about my extreme social anxiety that I experience being around people. Any sort of social gathering. I can't even go to school anymore. She prescribed Zoloft, but it was only after I asked her if she would prescribe me Xanax. I haven't started the Zoloft and I'm actually kind of scared to. I just don't know what kind of effect it will have on me. I don't want to take a lot of medication that is affecting my brain chemistry. But if I knew it was guaranteed to help me amongst my other medications I would take it. It's kind of a gamble and there are risks involved. Has anybody my age taken these meds, or know what the outcome is? Please reply me if you have any suggestions.

  • From this study (4 days 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!
