Thank you for the reply!

Actually my Dr. wrote on the pill label for "thought organization" weird huh?
I told him about my anxiety and mood swings
and he says because I did so well on only .25
of Risperdal before the wheels fell off and I got scared on it and stopped it that he thinks that I may be able to get by with a very low dose of Seroquel.

The other night I took only 1/4 of a 25 mgs of Seroquel and it literally put me to sleep while I was sitting there on the couch and I had to drag myself to bed, the next day I found myself on the couch up at 4:30 and sleeping on the couch till 7:00 followed by a nap at 1:00 to 2:00 then I was fine the rest of the day.

To test this out again I did NOT take any last night and today I am fine. So I think this proves that that tiny dose konked me out. I do not need it for sleep though, I have a lot of anxiety in my body that causes me to not be able to stand in one place and I fidget a lot. I am hoping that this low dose of 25 if I can make it up there will be helpful with something anything even if only my mood. the odd thing is that the next day I had actually ventured outside on my own although briefly and with some anxiety I actually felt less anxiety that whole day but I don't hold a candle to that with just one dose. My Dr. is going down a list to see what works and if this does not help our next one is Depakote, then lamictal then trileptal.

My blood sugar numbers were getting high with Risperdal and I had a lot of stomach pain and bloating and worse constipation so I have to see if my hba1c numbers come down mid sept. to really be able to determine if it was the Risperdal that raised them and if not then I could go back on Risperdal.
