Been taking 400mg Seroquel (along w/ Abilify & Cymbalta)for 3 yrs and have been tremendously happy w/ how it has changed/improved my moods, sleep & lifestyle.

I have been taking 400 mg. of this medication at night for 5 years. Helps really well with insomnia and ruminating of the mind, but I have no quality of life and have suicidal thoughts when even the smallest of things doesn't go well.

Comment:
Although it helps with my depression I have gained over 50lbs. My appetite is out of control. I always have a headache in the mornings. My doctor is slowly taking me off it. Recently I started having hallucinations and they have really scared me, another reason he said it was time to get off of it. Hopefully with a new med it will help my bipolar and weight issues.
