    Hi Jean

    Ive just posted something about quetiapine.

    I was at the psych this moning he has put my sertraline up to 200mg 15mg mirtazapine at night and now he has given me 25mg quetiapine I can take it twice a day but its really only if and when I need it.

    But I have just looked at the leaflet and its a antipsychotic drug for bipolar and schizophrenia.!!!!!!!??????

    I have depression and anxiety and dont know what these people are trying to do to me pumping me full of drugs.

    I dont know if I want to take itredface

      I was put on this as well because of not sleeping well and moodiness, needless to say I did not take it and likely never will the fact that it's used for seniors in nursing homes and bipolar and schizophrenia... did not make me want to take it and I made sure my Dr new this...

      Do you know Lynne I have put on so much weight on this drug and when I asked him about changing it he said the only other one availble would  put on twice the weight.

      Think I need to find someone else to talk to

      I have never been messed about so much in all my life.

      The mental health system in North West England is shocking.

      I lived in Dorset for 9 years the service down there was brill.

      I am fed up with psychs just throwing pills at everything.

      They dont know if the medication is going to work but they have discharged me because you are not allowed to be under a psychiatrist and receive CBT at the same time.

      Its a bleep bleep bleep joke!!!!!!redface
