my husband has been on Seroquel for well over 20

my husband has been on Seroquel for well over 20 years. 2+ years ago, he began having cognitive impairment issues and was recently diagnosed with Frontal Lobe Dementia. He takes 800 mg. Seroquel every night which does nothing for his sleep and now his neurologist wants to explore whether the "dementia" symptoms he has might be related to his taking this high dosage of Seroquel for so many years. Is this possible?

yes, thank you. I have suffered from major headaches everyday for over 20 years. Everything the doctors have given me doesn t help. My headaches always get extreme after I eat. But I took Seroquel for the first time yesterday and even after eating I had no headache. I was wondering why this medicine helped me?

Hi my name is Brianna, I m 20 years old and have a one year old daughter. I m married but my husband is in the military so its impossible for him to ever be home. I have a few issues mentally and I m terrified it s going to get out of hand and start scarig my daughter and I ve never been prescribed a medication that helps without side effects that effect daily life. I have tried anti depressants but they make me suicidal, hallucinate or really fat. I ve tried mood stabilizers but they work the first 2 months and somehow stop. I ve tried buspar which gives me electric shocks and seroquil which makes me too tired to be able to wake up and do what I need to do with my daughter . I m unsure what to look into, I know I have ptsd and thats where my issues stem from, but is there even a cure aside from therapy which I do over the phone? What should I do to take precautions so my daughter doesnt experience what I went through with my mother? I m not sure where else to turn aside from this website. I m not REALLY crazy all the time, but when I lose it I can t bring myself back without being self destructive and I feel like I m about to spiral. I dont know what to do to be the mother my daughter deserves. Any advice ? a pressure point or anything ? I know I sound desperate but I don t know where else to turn .

Hi, I m on vacation and forgot to pack my Effexor. It s too far to go back home and I don t know the prescription number to have my pharmacy send some to where I am. My only option is to take some of my husband s Welbutrin or take some Seraquil I have left over from when I used to take it. Which do you think would be the better option?
