50mg of Quetiapine for verbally aggressive outbursts

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have been on Escitalopram since 15th December 2014 and I am now on Maximum dose of 20mg, I have recently started to get verbally aggressive outbursts and have been prescribed 50mg of Quetiapine to be taken before bed. Has anything had any experience with this drug and the verbally aggressive outbursts? Any advice would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks

    You never got any answers?  I started taking this drug for various things, anger included.  I was hoping there would be some other replies.

      That's right Annie no one replied to my query and now I am up to 200mg taken at night, Not sure what is causing outbursts but GP has suggested I go to Anger Management but it's not Anger that I feel.

      I searched thru other discussions for answers. It seems like most everyone has different experiencestyles but a common one is tiredness. I am using it to stop anger. I sure hope it doesn't backfire!
