SORRY THIS IS SO WORDY AND I HOPE TO HEAR FROM SOME ONE. MY OBJECTIVE IS TO GET THIS OFF THE MARKET A.S.A.P. STAT JUST THINK HOW MANY FAMILIES LOST LOVED ONE TO SUICIDE AND IT WAS COMPLETELY DRUG INDUCED. AND DID THEY EVER KNOW WHAT REALLY HAPPENED... I WAS VERY CLOSE TO BECOMING A STATISTIC. INSTEAD A RAVING LUNATIC AND FEELING MUCH BETTER. EXCEPT MY DAUGHTER WILL NOT TALK TO ME. WILL SHE EVER KNOW THAT SHE TOO IS NOW A STATISTIC AS WELL? [confused] [Mad]

How and whom can I talk to about this INANE

DRUG... It has the Black Box WARNING... [loco] I

was given this particular med. for bi-

polar/depression/insomnia... The first week was

remarkable, I loved the relief ect... THEN A

STEALTH BEAST MOVED INTO MY HEAD! UNKNOWINGLY I

DID NOT SEE THE PATTERNS OF MY THINKING THAT

CAME OUT OF MY MOUTH. I REALLY THOUGHT I WAS

OK... [bonk] (((((NOW THE REST OF THE

STORY))))) I was taking 200mg. at bedtime works

great for insomnia, although that window to get

in bed for sleep is 30 min. so if I didn't get

to bed the reg. insomnia takes over once again.

I started Seroquel May 28 07. I live in

Arkansas, my daughter (in Ca.) first baby was

due July 22, and in June she was have pre-term

labor in and out of the hospital. The plans were

for me to go out and help her "because her

husband was and still is a Marine in Iraq. She

was concerned that I might wait to long and not

help her before durring and after. I was

planning to go early to mid July. I left June

23rd I came home Aug 16. Yes that is a very long

time for things to go VERY VERY BAD and IT DID.

she developed PUPPS which simply means she had

become allergic to her unborn sons

Testosterone!!! Ya WHAT HUH. Her very bulging

belly was inflamed with multiple and looking

lilke ONE giant welt and the itching drove her

crazy. At the same time she was calling me a

Crazy Insane B. It just seamed that I even made

the whole situation worse. Then she reached her

due date and in labor not effectively. She had

been have tremendous pain on her left side. Dr.s

told her that is was her Uterus stretching.

(WRONG) she was in the worst pain back to the

hospital I mentioned to the Dr. and VERY AGAINST

what she wanted me to do and that was to SHUTUP.

C-Scan showed the baby was laying on the tube

leaving the L. Kidney and Her KIDNEY WAS VERY

SWOLLEN. BY now she was past her due date. They

did not induce her. AAARGGGGGGGGG. She was just

plain worn out. Then there was me ALL WACKED ON

SEROQUEL AND STILL NOT SEEING WHAT EVERYONE ELSE

SAW. EXCEPT FOR ONE VERY CLEAR THING TO ME AND

THAT WAS SUICIDE... OVER AND OVER AND OVER. HERE

IS THE BREAKING POINT FOR ME AND MY DAUGHTER.

SHE HEARD ME TALKING ON THE PHONE TO MY DR. BACK

HOME ABOUT SUICIDE...THEN HER WALL CAME UP. I

CAN'T BLAME HER I WAS PROBABLY A REAL THREAT. OH

AND ALSO SHE HAD 3 EPIDERALS AND NOT ONE OF THEM

TOOK. SHE WAS NOT ANYWHERE NEAR PREPAIRED FOR

IT. AND THEN SHE WENT FROM A 3 TO A FULL PHASED

IN ABOUT 15MIN. AND PUSHED FOR ONLY 30MIN AND

BABY WAS BORN. SHE SAID THAT THE MIN HE WAS BORN

HER KIDNEY STOPPED HURTING. I STAYED OVERNIGHT

WITH HER 2 NIGHTS LIKE THE HUSBAND WOULD DO.

ANYWAY BABY WAS HOME I WAS SCARRING THEM SO SHE

CALLED 911 STATING I WAS TRYING TO COMMIT

SUICIDE. SO WHEN THE POLICE ARRIVED THEY COULD

CLEARLY SEE THAT MY MEDS WERE IN ORDER AND

NOTHING WAS MISSING OR EMPTY. THEY DIDN'T EVEN

PUT IT ON MY RECORD. THAT WAS AUG. 14, I GOT UP

THE NEXT DAY AND MY EX MOTHER IN LAW WAS THERE

AND I WAS TOLD I HAD TO LEAVE SO I PACKED WHAT I

COULD AND HEADED TO A HOTEL. MY EX HUSBAND AND

MY SON GOT ME SETTLED INTO A ROOM. I MADE

RESERVATIONS WHILE AT THE HOTEL AND I CAUGHT A

PLANE THE NEXT DAY. I HAD ACCUMILATED A FEW

THINGS LIKE MANY MANY COPIES OF PHOTOS I HAD

TAKEN THERE WERE ABOUT 150 BUT REMEMBER I HAD 5-

6 COPIES FOR THE REST OF MY FAMILY. wHEN I LEFT

I HAD A BOX PACKED AND ALSO THE PHOTOS WERE IN

THE BOX THEY WERE JUST TO HEAVY FOR ME. I

FINALLY RECEIVED THE BOX SEPT. 12TH A LOT OF

THINGS WERE MISSING SO WERE THE PHOTOS. MY

DAUGHTER HAD ACCESS TO THE BOX FOR OVER 3 WEEKS.

AND I HAVE STILL NOT BEEN ABLE TO TALK TO HER

AND WE ALWAYS TALKED AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK. I HAD

A PKG TO MAIL TO IRAQ TO HER HUSBAND SHE TOLD

HER DAD TO TELL ME THAT HER HUSBAND WANTED

NOTHING FROM ME BECAUSE OF WHAT I DID TO HER. I

STOPPED TAKING SEROQUEL TEN DAYS AFTER I GOT

THERE BECAUSE MY LIPS AND MOUTH WERE BURNING TO

THE POINT I COULD NOT EVEN DRINK WATER. SO I

LOOKED UP THE SIDE EFFECTS AND THERE WERE 1,113

SIDE EFFECTS SO I PRINTED IT AND THERE WERE 9

PGS. ALONG WITH 79 SUICIDES AND EVEN 2 DIFFERENT

PEOPLE COMMITTED MURDER. THIS IS WHEN THEY ALL

BECAME VERY AWARE I WAS PROBABLY CAPEABLE OF

DOING HARM TO SOME ONE. AND NOW THEY STILL THINK

AND BELIEVE I AM STILL IN THAT FRAME OF MIND. SO

NEEDLESS TO SAY NO ONE KNOWS WHEN AND NOW WITH

THE WAR AND THE WAR OF LYME I WONDER IF I WILL

EVER BE ABLE TO HAVE THEM LISTEN AND HEAR ME.

ONE OF THE SIDE EFFECTS FROM SEROQUEL IS A

CHEMICAL LIKE BURN OF THE LIPS AND MOUTH AND

EVEN 3 WEEKS AFTER I STOPPED TAKING IT THEY

STILL KEPT BURNING. SO MY MESG. IS CLEAR. PASS

THIS INFO AND PLEASE SOME ONE HELP ME FOR I HAVE

LOST ALL REPECT FROM MY CHILDREN AND EVEN A FEW

FAMILY MEMBERS AND FRIENDS... ONLY NOT FROM LYME

BUT BECAUSE OF LYME I WAS PERSCRIBED THIS

HORRIFIING MED. HOW DOES ONE COME BACK FROM THIS.

sINCERELY ANNIE AND ALIVE AND WANTING TO BE ALIVE.

Wow...I'm so sorry Annie! Are you taking another anti-depressant?? Do you feel that you need to be on one??

I would send a report to the pharmaceutical company.....and to the FDA. Every company has to record "adverse events" to their drugs.

I'm so sorry about all this. Maybe you could get someone to videotape your explanation of what happened and send it to your family???

There may be no repair in sight now,but the wound is still fresh.

Things take time.

Attend to the matter of healing yourself-spiritually, mentally, and physically.

Take Care,
Carol

I've read about some of the horrible reactions to psychotropic drugs, but never heard a first person experience. I'm am very sorry that you had to go through that hell.
I hope you find someone to talk with who can help you deal with the pain. And consider talking to a lawyer, to see if there is any recourse to compensation.

i can not read your post because it is too long, but my very good freind lost her son while he was on seroquel. He OD'd on oxycontin, just when they thought he was finally starting to turn a corner. That drug is scary, but the disease of bi-polar is also so difficult.

My best to you for healing and repairs in all the ways you need them.

My daughter took it for a year for insomnia. She weaned off of it because we felt it contributed to her weight gain.

It was a VERY difficult weaning process. She transferred to Geodon, which has been great.

She really needed two different kinds of anti-depressants to balance her. She takes Wellbutrin in the morning.

So sorry you went through this. You should definitely contact some people (I can't even think who, my brain is fried) and let them know what you went through.

Everyone has different reactions with all those drugs. I remember starting Celexa, then Paxil, then got really depressed was put on Prozac, that's when I was suicidal.

Wellbutrin saved me.

It's a very personal experience, and doctors should monitor their patients VERY closely.
When they work, they are wonderful; when they don't the consequences are HUGE.
