how did you feel about the change in dx did you believe that dx better than the first did it fit how you feel better? I was diagnosed as major depressive disorder at first then I was changed. the PTSD has never changed though. do you have any other hallucinations

I have visual hallucinations and I suspect the geodon for this, but in the dark I hallucinate. Initially I didn't think much about my diagnosis that is the terms first BP didn't know what to make of it I was pretty ignorant but in retrospect I think I was a little bit BP not full blow episodes for the most part I have had some incidences that's all. And then the voices came along and I came across the new term but really didn't think much of it was just glad to leave the hospital although I did glance through the info sheet on this condition that they gave. Later on I read more about SA and watched videos on youtube so its quite interesting > the evolution and I believe in it to a fair deal and it seemed pretty accurate for me. But nowadays I'm just normal because of the meds but my lifee is still turned upside down due to the sexual side effects its not a good feeling at all it just stays with you all day long and I can't wait to get rid of this problem. I had quite a lot of good time during my seroquel days I can't wait to get back to that medication! It is so chill I swear I loved it.

i agree with the staroquel chill, u def get relaxed. I have night time visual hallucinations too I swear I have learned to like them no matter how weird I even talk to them at times. How about you?
Hey I talked to a schizoaffective friend who works in the mental health field too, hes recovered, he recommended viagra for the sexual dysfunction, give it a try ask your doc he'll understand if u tell him about the anti psychotic effects

I already have the stuff it works pretty good. Yes I have tried communicating with them, I do try to observe what they are doing and stuff and they can have this relaxing effect on me but I like to ignore them as well just look away or close my eyes, they used to be a lot more interesting than they are now. Even with my eyes closed I see things.

One thing that could have been done is simply increase the dosage (I was on 45mgs) but that was not done unfortunately and now I want so badly to go back to it I can't wait.
I'm on it for voices, 500mg and it's doing nothing except making me fat

Are you sure you meant 45mg and not 450mg?? I only know of 25mg and 50mg tablets for low doses.

I remember it being a low dose (75?) I wonder what it will be now but it better be up there and I'm gonna make sure he knows that its for voices. I'm sorry about the weight gain I see you are mad I on the other hand am skinny and would like to weigh atleast go up to 160 so its a welcome for me. I've never had anything like 450 I wouldn't mind it though.

I'm on 600mg Seroquel IR at night for auditory and visual hallucinations. It does the trick for the most part, I usually get my hallucinations around bedtime or in the morning and Seroquel just knocks me out cold so I don't deal with them.
