 2   Seems to help with delusions and mania, but Seroquel xr gives me light hallucinations, though I know (ah) aren't real, that in itself can be overwhelming. My dr. Thinks it's only me, but I've read many stories of people who have experienced the same! I'm thinking of changing to something else with the least side effects. 31 0 days

 3  Tbi's Add on from previous post** Helps control symptoms, But Trade off like I said it takes away creativity, and such. But will take that, than continually make a fool out of myself! It's more than just taking medication, it's a prescription, Eat healthy, mediate, journaling, grounding techniques, positive affirmations, Support groups, low thiol foods, No sulfur In any way. This Is what helps me manage my symptoms. 35 0 days

 3  Tbi injuries Seroquel xr is somewhat helpful keeps my symptoms at bay, and keeps me from mania and delusions. but at the expense of dulling me down. Emotionally, & mentally! Also Really hate that it takes away my creativity, and ability to innovate, create content. read, and sometimes follow conversation. I feel dazed at times. Might go down in dose to suit me better. Take pro Dha 2,000 mg a day, Vitamin B complex, Multivitamin + try to eat incredibly clean, but the meds will Make you crave carbs. Wake up in middle of night 2-4 times and snack, keep veggies, fresh fruit or granola around occasionally chips or popcorn Might give you nightmares, sleep talking (I've been told) 35 95 days

 5  Psychosis Anxiety Suicidal thoughts Night time craving for sweet food - I take it at night and need to sleep within about an hour of taking it (then, sometimes not?) Saved my life. I sometimes miss a dose if I'm in charge of kids and want to be sure I can drive etc I can still sleep. Without this Im pretty sure I'd be dead or permanently hospitalised. Started combined with Lexapro (yuck) but now combined with Zoloft (Zoloft user for bipolar ptsd and ocd for 20+years). V happy - just a shame I need them and that they weren't available for my Dad in the 1950's F 52 3 days

 3  OCD and Anxiety Really did not help my OCD or anxiety, but it was a miracle drug for my severe insomnia. The only problem Is that I feel extremely fatigued in the morning hours, sometimes I must sleep 12 hours, and getting up as late as 11 AM Did wonders for insomnia, but I literally could not get out of bed in the morning at a reasonable hour. Sometimes I could not get up out of bed until noon. I also noticed weight gain. 35 2 years

 1  Insomnia It would knock me out for 12 to 15 hours and I would not be able to wake up two hurricane nor less my alarm clock it got to the point to where I stopped taking it and fear of losing my job because while taking it I was late several times It's great if you have nothing better to do than sleep, because it definitely will put you in a coma F 33 1 years
 5  Bipolar I take it at night before bed. No side effects, sleep very well, wake up in the morning 7:30 or 8:00 well rested and wide awake. Never groggy. I take 300mg XR with 100 mg of zoloft once a day. Combo works well no depression. F 62 9 years
 3  Anxiety, depression and sleep issue Looked like someone from the film train spotting. slept for hours at night woke with a headache and had to go back to bed. Couldn't function. The best sleep I have had in years when taken of a night but had to stop the day dose as I couldn't function, my eyeballs were rolling and my daughter said I looked like I was a heroin addict. I couldn't do anything, wash, eat or even brush my teeth. I had to avoid the daily dose as I would have lived in my bed otherwise. Only a small dose but I am 7 stone and five foot two only. I felt the small dose was too strong for me. The upside is I can sleep but I do not want withdrawal issues. F 50 8 days
 3  bipolar and sleep I eat more. It takes forever to fall asleep but once im asleep I sleep til drowsy during the first 2 hours I wake up. But during my sleep nothing can wake me up Find the right dosage. If just for sleep xr wont help to fall asleep but aids in a deep sleep F 37 1 years
 3  Bipolar depression I took seroquel about 3 hours before going to bed, about an hour after taking it my feet got externally annoyingly tingly on the bottoms I becam very irritable. When I fell asleep I fell into a fast deep sleep but felt like I couldn't move my body for some reason. I would wake up gasping for air. But I could move myself just felt like an elephant was sitting on me. My chest was a little uncomfortable as well. When I woke up at 10:45 am my mouth was very dry and my throat. And I feel dizzy like a mini hang over. Last night was my first time taking it and I'm not sure if I am going to see any big changes yet, hopefully they are good and don't put me through the horrible story's I've read. If you are considering taking it tread very lightly. F 20 1 days

 3  Sleep and depression Extreme dry mouth, tongue, dental pain like bleeding gums and mouth sores. It helped me sleep, but the side effects were very concerning. Don't stop cold turkey, I did that by mistake. I'm currently back on it to stabilize than I need to do a slow taper. M 50 6 months

 1  Sleep Caused taredivedykinesia /dystonia, lost my job, home, life ,numbness, tremors muscle spasms problems with movement foot turns in Stay away from it F 50 5 years
 5  OCD Certainly makes me sleepy, so I take it at night before bed. If I take it too late, say around midnight and have to wake up at 6am, I will have a very, very sluggish morning. Best bet for me is to take it and have 8 hours of sleep. It's well tolerated, I have no signficant side effects. I went off of it for a few months a couple years back, my anxiety hit me like a freight train, so I went back on it. No weight gain for me, I eat well and exercise regularly. This drug absolutely halts obsessive thoughts / thinking. It slows my mind down and allows me to be more patient. I take it in combination with 37.5 mg of Paxil XR. These drugs literally have given me a quality of life I never thought was possible. M 40 4 years

 1  Anxiety I know I've only taken one dose, but within an hour of taking it last night I had quite an extreme case of heartburn. Today if I eat the smallest amount of food it starts again. It did make me sleepy, but I don't really have a sleeping problem. Today I feel so dizzy that every time I stand it feels like I'm on a boat that's rocking. I feel like I can't function. F 24 1 days

 1  bipolar depression Extreme tiredness, zombie like effect, itchieness, mild memory loss Despite sleeping well at night, I was so tired I couldn't stay awake during the day. When not asleep i would just stare out the window or at computer screen. Total zombie effect - could not hold train of thought. Fell asleep at traffic light. Ditched this awful drug after 4 days to avoid terrible withdrawals that have been reported. Two days later, I feel great with minimal withdrawal. Maybe I'm cured?! M 51 4 days

SEROQUEL XR  (QUETIAPINE FUMARATE):  This medication is used to treat certain mental/mood conditions (such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, sudden episodes of mania or depression associated with bipolar disorder). It is also used with other medications to treat depression. Quetiapine is known as an anti-psychotic drug (atypical type). It works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural substances (neurotransmitters) in the brain. This medication can decrease hallucinations and improve your concentration. It helps you to think more clearly and positively about yourself, feel less nervous, and take a more active part in everyday life. It may also improve your mood, sleep, appetite, and energy level. Quetiapine can help prevent severe mood swings or decrease how often mood swings occur.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
