> I'm bipolar and was going through a period where I experienced audutory hallucinations. I tried Geodon and went on quite a high dosage and it didn't help. I had to use Thorazine. I don't think it's a very robust antipsychotic. What about Seroquel, have you tried that?

I haven't tried seroquel. From what i have read it causes some weight gain which is reversible if you work out. But i don't know if it's activating , it seems more like it's sedating. Will that help me get up in the morning and motivate me?

My main symptom is mostly too many emotional and distressing thoughts. I usually do not suffer much from hallucinations.
