I’ve been following this for far too long…I had to post something. PLEASE click on this link as Furious Seasons has been covering this story in great detail for quite a long time.

FS sums it up best: AstraZeneca Exec Admits “Fuck-Ups” In Seroquel Study, Published Article.

I wish I could comment more, but I can’t. I’m about to delve into some heavy sexual abuse therapy. I have found a wonderful, loving, compassionate place and I’m feeling very hopeful for the first time in a long time. I’ll be facing the trauma/rape I experienced at 15. Although this will be a very painful process, my hope is, I will come out stronger, healthier and happier. I am still traveling the alternative path after ‘waking up’ and seeing/experiencing the dangers of the many medications I have been prescribed and taken for nearly 20 years. Seroquel being the worst. You can find my experiences with Seroquel by simply searching here but first, please click on the link mentioned above and well, yeah, just do it.

    I was put on just about every psyche med there was since I was 7. Started therapy when I was 3. The worst psyche med was Risperdal. It was a horrible antipsychotic with bad side effects. I was on Seroquel for two years but I did not experienced any of the horrible side effects on two years of Seroquel that I experienced on eight months of Risperdal and a week of Abilify. Seroquel didn’t make any difference at all so they kept upping my dose, but I didn’t even feel it. I’m glad, it’s much weaker than Risperdal or Abilify, which gave me these horrible side effects. My stimulants still worked, too, which was great. Back when I was in middle school I was put on Risperdal off label and that doctor kept pushing it, I was actually doing really well back then and things were going very well, but the doctor said that Risperdal was this magic pill and that my mom would be a bad parent if I wasn’t put on Risperdal and that I needed this pill and to trust the ‘expert’. Then when I had horrible, bad side effects, the doctor kept saying to wait a few more months, over and over, then we switched doctors and eventually, much too late, I was taken off Risperdal. Luckily, it was only eight months. None of the other antipsychotics I was on actually worked like Risperdal or an antipsychotic. I was actually doing really well back then so I have no idea why that psychiatrist was pushing Risperdal, unless the psychiatrist wanted to test it out on all their teenage patients. I like using stimulants and amphetamines to get high because they are much more effective than medication. The second you take an amphetamine you feel euphoric, your anxiety goes away, you feel incredible and amazing. Amphetamines and stimulants do what medication can’t- they help. When you are high your problems so away and you can think better. They should prescribe stimulants and amphetamines because they work. The best thing is to have exciting relationships, relationships give the best euphoria ever. I always need to have a boyfriend in my life to fill my life with excitement. It’s important for me to always have a boy in my life. To get better you need passion, excitement, not Seroquel/Risperdal/Abilify. I remember I was put on Risperdal after my boyfriend at the time and I broke up, and years later Seroquel, after my boyfriend at the time and I had broken up. What helps you feel amazing are relationships. Doctors just give out antipsychotics to kids for all these off label uses like anxiety. Risperdal and Abilify gave very strong side effects right away. By the time I was put on Seroquel, I was taking five or six pills a day, so they canceled out the Seroquel. With Risperdal, the Risperdal canceled out my other psyche meds. Sorry for the crazy little rant thingy.
