generic prolixin…fluphenazine…that’s my med and I love it…I am happy on this med…try it.
I just want to say that Seroquel is known for plugging the nose right after taking. I would suggest flushing your nose with a cleansing agent from the pharmacy and using 100% saline spray regularly that is not addictive and taking it with Benadryl at the same time when taking seroquel. Just my thoughts. This helped my nose issues at the time.
Have you been tested for obstructive sleep apnoea? It’s quite common, due to weight gain from meds. And there’s a solution - using a CPAP for sleep. Good luck.
So I talked to my psych nurse, and we agree that my illness, Im having a flu makes it harder to breathe and to sleep.my problem breathing didnt begin until my roommate got sick like 2 weeks. I have been on Seroquel for 3,5 months without problems. So chances are that it is not the Seroquel causing problem with my nose.
So I will buy nose spray and benadryl today.
It kind of suck tho that I can’t go to my friend’s birthday tonight because of the flu. But maybe it will be good to take a day completely without alcohol
You might try mixing Geodon with your Seroquel. That’s a combination that has worked well for me. It won’t help with your breathing, though. I just breath through my mouth when my nose is stopped up.
I would get a very short acting nasal decongestant and keep rinsing out your nasal passages. Good luck and feel better.
I understand your problem with not being able to breath through the nose as I had the same problem on Ziprasidone.
That’s simply so hard to live with that I personally wouldn’t go on with qutiapine.
Instead I would ask for the slimming version of Zyprexa or I would ask for Sycrest (Asenapine).
Have you tried Abilify? It’s a decent drug. I feel zombified to an extent, but can still do a lot of activities (cooking, cleaning, laundry, hobbies). The depression I have is low level. I think a lot of bad things are happening on the world scene. Inflation is stressing out a lot of people too, so some people’s depression may not be chemical imbalance but situational.
Have you tried doing any cardio exercise? I find that I can breath better when I ride my stationary bike consistently. I do it twenty minutes a day in front of my TV.
