Here at the hospital, I am being very gradually switched from Thorazine to Seroquel. I’ve been on Thorazine for 16 months and it has done an amazing job of keeping me stable. However, Seroquel is making a huge difference as well.
I’m currently on 350mg of Seroquel and 50mg of Thorazine. I can tell a huge difference.
I’m more animated. My affect is not as flat or blunted. I’m happier. I wouldn’t say I was ever depressed, but I was definitely a bit on the apathetic side. I don’t feel that way at all now.
I have more motivation. I’m working on a book idea on a regular basis with no difficulty motivating myself to work on it. I’m more physically active, playing basketball, going on walks, etc. I’ve read 3 books since getting on Seroquel. I’m sleeping well. I’m more friendly and upbeat.
I have nothing bad to say about Thorazine…it really helped me. But I’m seeing that it was holding me back some. I’m glad I can see the difference.
