For those of you that take Seroquel what dose did you start on? Are you still on it? What was your maximum dose? Any side effects?
I took 300 mg one time. Made me psychotic and I never took another one.
When I was psychotic and in the hospital,
They put me on 300mg twice a day.
I was a total zombie.
Gained about 75 pounds.
It was not the medication for me.
Got off of it and lost the weight, had a baby, then got on Abilify,
It’s been working great for years.
Believe it or not but I was on 1200mg a day…I was a little drowsy
Vomiting. 200 mg.
I don’t remember the dose but I gained a ton of weight on it in a really short period of time and had to quit.
I started on 50 mg Seroquel. I’m now on 600 mg. I have been on seroquel for 9 years now with two other antipsychotics. Seroquel made it possibly to replace some of the depot Clopixol from 300 mg weekly to 400 mg Clopixol every 3 week. I gained 1.5 stone in 5 years on Seroquel. The last two years I have lost one stone by eating veggies and whole grains. One specially welcome side effect is that I no longer can get drunk and that’s why I don’t attend AA meetings
25mg. On 50mg I had an allergic reaction…won’t ever touch that stuff again!
They put me on 400 x 2 daily from the beginning. I didn’t think they were doing anything to me until I didn’t get them for five days. I was more jittery than I cared to be.
