Hi everyone! Just wanted to pop in to let you know how I am doing with coming off Seroquel. Went to the Pdoc yesterday, and I am now down from 600mg to 250mg. I have finally lost 12lbs, and have lost 24 inches. I now measure 34/34/43, from 42/43/50. I am working very hard to get the person back that I lost to Seroquel. My eye sight has gotten so much better. I was on a very high dosage than most and after 61/2 years it was time to come off. Seroquel is a great drug and I am sorry that I started having so many side effects. For those on lower dosages and no side effects, please don't go off this med. My Pdoc and I am not considering a new drug to replace it since I am on such a high dose of Trileptal 2400mg a day. You might be wondering why I take such a higher dosage than most...simply because I have a higher resistances to meds. Hope everyone is doing well, I think of you everyday, and pray than all is good. I'll drop in every now and then to let you know how I am doing....Love to all!
