    Re: Updates please

    4 weeks into 375mg and I still feel terrible. Iím worried itís not working or the dose is just too high for me. OCD thoughts are through the roof thinking I should leave my partner and son, I canít bear the thought of it.
    When I increased to 300 those thoughts went away overnight, but that could have been the increase of quetiapine I did the week before. Iím thinking of calling CMHT but something is telling me to just keep going and I donít think Iím giving myself enough time to settle between all the changes. Should I just keep going? Iím so confused 🙁

    I give any med increase 12 weeks but no harm asking for more help/advise.

    Thanks Maca, I called CMHT and waiting for a call back but still feeling that I should keep going. Looking back at my journal Iíve never gone longer than 5/6 weeks between changes over the last year. Iím starting to wonder if this is why itís all been going on for so long.

    Sorry to hear this Jo. How long have you been on the 375? About 4 weeks? Am I right in thinking you're on a fairly low dose of quetiapine? Personally I probably would call the CMHT and see what they suggest, unless you're due to see your psych soon. Also, are you having any therapy now? That might help with the intrusive thoughts more than meds (just my opinion).

    Thanks DS, Iím also on 200mg quetiapine and 30mg mirtazapine. Not due to see psychiatrist until 2nd March. Iím also doing MBCT but only on my second week so not sure if it will help yet.

    That's great that you're doing some therapy. What did the CMHT say about your meds? What are your feelings? I wonder whether increasing the quetiapine would be an option since it seemed to help before. I hear what you're saying about constant med changes though. It's quite exhausting having to change things all the time.
