Going to talk to the doc about another med tweak. UPDATE in replys.
Well, my meds are working okay, but I am having problems with severe constipation and even being on 300 mg of seroquel xr is helping me sleep but I have horrible nightmares and stress dreams. I have also gained too much weight and I am at my limit with that.
A while back I took inderol/catapres to help with that and it did work. I did have to go off of it due to it lowering my blood pressure too much (it is a bp med used off label for sleep and PTSD nightmares). And maybe going down to 200mg of seroquel
I am just simply fed up with the constipation and weight gain. I have to take miralax every other day. I eat really well and although the seroquel cravings for sugar are strong I switched to stevia and avoid junk food.
I think that the biggest risk to my health is this weight gain and lack of quality sleep. I understand I have to put up with some side effects but I am no "obese" when I look at a BMI chart. I was consistently a size 5 even after having kids and with meds I am a size 12-14.
