Ok...so here I am functioning on my 3rd day of seroquel. I took 100mg last night. Out like a light about 40 min after taking it.
I have found I do have one of the rare side-effects of severe nasal congestion after I take it. Rather uncomfortable but not unmanageable.
I did dream last night, for the first time in I don't know how long...it wasn't a good dream but it was still a dream. I don't expect my emotional state to change over night but I am hopeful.

Forgot to mention...my muscle are sore as if I'd lifted all day. Idk

The severe nasal congestion drives me nuts. sometimes itll happen every night for a week, or one night out of the blue, but i've found that if i cry after i take the seroquel my nose stays stuffed up and i hate it because i breathe through my nose when i sleep, so it's like the seroquel is making me pass out but i can't breathe through my nose so i have a panic attack because i can't breathe.

i take 300mg of seroquel every night and 0.5mg of ativan.

I feel you, the first night I wasn't sure what was happening. My chest felt a little tight and I could barely breathe through my nose, I was afraid I'd stop breathing in the middle of the night. But I'm good...I try to pay attention to what my body tells me. I've had worse reactions to meds, so this doesn't seem so bad. I'm feeling really fatigued durig the day, I'm not sure if it's a side effect or not. I'm in serious need of some energy though. I'll keep you guys posted.

i'm a little bit addicted to those sort of pills regardless of whether or not i have anxiety.. i mean i do have severe anxiety but i just love being able to take a pill and 'cure' it.. i think i might continue taking it but i won't let myself take it more than twice a week.
