I'm at 100mg Lamictal and he wanted me to go up to 200mg.  But I did fine on 100mg for a long time and I haven't had any depression symptoms since getting up to 100mg.

Seroquel is in addition for this wierd mixed episode whatever thing that is going on right now.

I had my baseline bloodwork this morning and I'm supposed to start seroquel tonight.
 
I got A LOT of order for custom portraits after posting my photo on facebook.  And what if my artistic ability is gone?  My fiance is going to loose it if I am too sluggish.
 
I had to cancel everything on my schedule 'cause I can't drive until I know how it affects me.  I HATE med changes.  I'm in tears just thinking about it.

hi voix. I just started with 50mg yesterday. I am having a hard time staying awake today. I have zero energy. I'm dizzy/lightheaded, having a hard time walking in a straight line. Dry mouth, no appetite, and feel like I'm going to puke. I have no emotion exceot intrusive suicidal thoughts.

I'm supposed to take 100 mg tonight, and 200mg tomorrow night. :(

My fiance is so upset with me already. I feel totally exhausted just from typing this.... going back to sleep ...

the best advice i can give you is DON'T DO IT!! my psychiatrist started me off 50mg, then next day 100mg, then next day 200mg, then next day 300mg. the day i took 300mg i passed out taking a shower and when i came to i passed out a second time and when i came too from that my blood pressure was so low that my vision was black for a good 5 minutes and i just sat on the shower floor and cried because i was blind and naked in a public bathroom.
seroquel is not a bad drug at all. it's helped me so much. but doctors try to start us on it way way too fast. take 100mg for at least 3-5 days, then 200mg for a week, and then go to 250mg, not 300, (you'll have to cut some pills in half or something depending on how high the pill mg is). be on 250mg for a few days and then take 300mg the night before you have nothing important to do the next day in case you have a bad reaction. the side effects go away relatively quickly so don't let that discourage you. a

also the dry mouth, you will wake up a lot with that, keep a water bottle by your bed it will help. if it makes you feel any better, seroquel hasn't affected my thinking or creativity at all. in fact i think i feel more clear headed than i ever have before.
