The doctor raised my seroquel.
Because I’ve been up late…will be working graveyards when I get over this pneumonia.
I’m fighting to stay awake at all most of the time.
So…raise the dosage on the drug that knocks me out?
#1. Seroquel isn’t for sleep.
#2. I don’t WANT to sleep early. I’m worried I won’t be able to stay awake on my job as it is. Training was really difficult on this medication.
I was up very late one night worrying about my car–which broke down on the freeway…Like any normal person with money troubles might.
I wish I hadn’t told the doctor that.
She said she’s worried I might become manic.
#1. Seroquel isn’t a bipolar or mania drug.
#2. Psychotropic drugs are generally prescribed to treat symptoms you already have, not possibilities that may never happen.
DBH knows I hate seroquel and everything about it. I hate the way it makes me feel…mostly like a zombie. I hate sleeping my life away…and sometimes drooling.
When I left the state hospital I was not prescribed seroquel...and the release records said “bipolar in remission.”
I swear this doctor put me on it just to annoy me, but there was no other reason.
And if I were truly paranoid, I might think she’s trying to sabotage my job.
It seems all these people do is make normal functioning harder and harder.
It’s not helping!
