I've been taking Seroquel every night for over 5 years (God help me).
Even in very small doses, it is generally impossible for me to be awake while under its stupor.
As life would have it: If I am asleep I am on Seroquel and if I am on Seroquel I am asleep.
Since birth I have been especially cranky when I get woken up before I'm done sleeping for the night.
Lately, Seroquel has been making this crankiness much worse. ...more like an alcoholic rage.
I feel confused, very angry, and frustrated with my inability to articulate. I scream and curse but don't remember it in the morning. My live-in girlfriend said it makes her afraid for her safety.
I am a gentle pacifist and strongly believe that NOBODY ever deserves to be yelled at, so this behavior is especially upsetting for me to hear about.
The gf relationship is beyond repair. She lost respect for me years ago and isn't shy about telling me so. I only get to live here in her house out of I don't know: - either kindness or her need for a scapegoat. I don't have any money or place to go.
The gf is also a practicing psychologist and is emotionally abusive. Take my word for it folks, psychology can be used for evil.
So to conclude: I am stuck in a harmful relationship and living situation. I don't fight back against emotional abuse, but it builds up into a rage that only comes out when I'm both on Seroquel and awake. I am scared of changing any of my medications and terrified of adding a fourth one.
Does anyone else get really upset on Seroquel? Shaking hands, fear, anger, confusion?
