In the past few weeks, obsessive thoughts, deluded thoughts, and racing thoughts have been making it almost impossible to function without intense suffering. Obsessive, delusional, and racing. This cocktail of thoughts is in a symbiotic relationship with rapid cycling of moods in what I fear is a terribly mixed episode of bipolar. That's how I'd describe it now.
I've been prescribed 25mg of Seroquel to be taken at night, on a full stomach. I've been on it for a few days, and it's certainly made things better. But just because something is better does not make it tolerable.
Right now, my thoughts are somewhat less obsessive, still deluded, and merely pacing instead of racing. It's like they've had molasses dumped on them (same with me, although I've heard that this wears off over time). It's easier - but still immensely difficult - to stay focused on anything, even the things I enjoy. I still can't spend time with friends or watch a movie or read a book without the thoughts constantly attempting to derail my enjoyment.
I've heard that Seroquel takes a while for the full benefits of it to kick in. I just have to ask, how long? How many more days will the obsessive thoughts torment me? How many more days of rapid fluctuations in mood and outlook? How many more days before I can start to think clearly again?
Or is it possible that Seroquel might not be the right medication?
I'm also taking Wellbutrin (300mg) in the morning and Prozac (10mg). I don't see the PDoc in another month.
Hope you guys can offer some help and/or insight.
