Decreasing Seroquel for Anxiety/Mood and its effects?
Hello, I have been on the following dosages of Seroquel for some anxuety issues:
2005-2010: 200 mgs at bedtime
2010-2011: 100 mgs at bedtime
since 2012 to now (early 2013) I have been on 50mgs of Seroquel at bedtime.
I wanted to ask for those with experience and knowledge on this medication or the anti psychotics in general:
-after I am down to 0 mgs of this medication, how long will it take for me to return to the way I was before starting the meciation in term of my make up.
-will the weight gain stop ( have went from 180 to 194 in the last 8 years)?
-will the metabolism be alright (speed up again)?
-will I be able to drink again normally?
-Do you think the negative effects it may have had on my body have been decreased since my body is used to the medication over these years
-*-And importantly, if there was any damage; after stopping the medication will I get better or has it been too many years?
thank you, it seems now the medicince is more for maintenance and not so much for use since I feel better now and I am looking to continue my tapering off..
i take geodon 80mg./2 a day with each meal
but i want you to adjust your meds under the supervision of a medical doctor only i cant sleep well but i do not have the weight gain and other heavy side effects :)
