Two weeks into Seroquel

I’ve been on Seroquel for two weeks now and can honestly say it’s the best and worst thing ever.

The Good:

  1. I no longer have the urge to hurt myself or even suicidal thoughts.
  2. I’m a lot happier than I’ve been at any time since my bipolar diagnosis.
  3. My anxiety level is almost nonexistent.
  4. I can finally make it through the night without waking up a couple dozen times.

The Bad:

  1. I’m always sleepy.
  2. I have brain fog that makes it hard to remember things.
  3. I have a bit of an issue with my speech i.e. stuttering
  4. It’s really hard to concentrate especially when driving because I tend to zone out.

I’m willing to put up with the side effects of Seroquel but do hope that they decrease over time. Luckily, I don’t have the intense hunger everyone talks about on this medication because my body probably couldn’t handle that.

I will keep you updated on my progress and it was pretty hard to even write this because of the brain fog
