Quetiapine , and cognitive Impairment
There are multiple anti-depressant medications. Consult your prescribing physician on your reactions to your medication. Keeping a journal helps, & will aide in getting you on the right dose or prescription.

I've been taking 400-450 mg of Seroquel for over 10 years. I was for
tunate to be treated by a very good Neuro Psychiatrist who has now retired. While taking more than 400mg can cause insomnia. Lower doses of 50-100mg can act as a sleep aid. I function best by taking it all at bedtime along with a sleep aid. When I had to find a new doctor, the first thing he did was screw with my Meds. I should have listened to my instincts, and changed only one med at a time. He changed me too 400mg at nigh

I have been on Quetiapine for about 10 years now, it does take a long time to get used to the effects of this drug both good and bad. One thing to remember is, you are used to the way your mind worked before taking the drug, and have to learn how your mind works after taking it. Yes after taking it you will become impaired, it is a very strong tranquilizer. I started on 200ml per day, 25 ml 4 times a day, 100ml at bedtime it took about a year or even 2 before I learned to function while on this

I am feeling the same way, I have been taking 50mg for two weeks a the doctor raised me to 50 mg at bed and 25 mg in the morning. I am fatigued, down, not able to think clearly. This is crazy, I feel that I'm go into depression because of my symptoms.

antipsychotic meds are too much risk to be used off-label

Its not a sleep aid , you should try something approved for sleep , its a anti psychotic , if your not psychotic don't take it ,

The light switch
Thanks for the thoughtful post. I was also an eldest. Given my emotional makeup, being very responsible, always the good girl the responsibility of caring for siblings, carrying out chores, attempting to keep peace & unsuccessfully lead my charges to pull their share of the work at a young age took a toll on me too.
I was shy at school & moved every other year. I found relief in theater arts playing characters not me. Later I was discouraged from pursuing theater as a career. Music & books f

"Degenerative Disk Disease", led to 3 operations and morphine & oxycodone useage.
You really do not want to take oxycontin unless you are terminal . I'm currently living a nightmare life after taking oxycontin for chronic pain . i'm now hooked and have become tolerant to successive doses of this drug. I have little or no motivation ,no libido and live a life of depression due to oxy.

Try to find a doctor anywhere in North America ( I live in Canada) is nearly impossible. The government and pharmaceutical companies are hot to trot on giving chronic pain people man made opuates or anti-depressants.They get you hooked your pain is gone. Now they want to make life as miserable as they can "so now you have go on anything but morphine or daillodud (ie). So frustrating. I wanna know what doctors do for their pain? So far every show I have seen on TV. doctors drink like fish. Ie.
