  2. @notfred Pdoc specifically said the quetiapine 150mg is for augmenting venlafaxine/mirtazapine for depression
  3. I also just started taking this combination. Here is a link to the thread http://www.crazyboards.org/forums/index.php/topic/62808-looking-for-info-on-my-med-cocktail/. Since this thread is a little old with no replys maybe you can update me on how it is working for you or anything you found out about that combo.
  4. This is my second post since joining. I am looking to find out any info about what my combination of meds is doing inside my brain. Look at my introduction post if you want to know about my condition. I am now prescribed venlafaxine 150mg in the morning, mirtazapine 30mg and quetiapine fumarate 150mg at night, with clonazapam 2mg PRN. I know how the venlafaxine and mirtazapine theoretically work together to boost 5ht and NE "California Rocket Fuel". I know that since i'm only at 150mg Venlafaxine it is only acting as a SSRI, but i think i probably will have to increase to 225mg soon, changing it to SNRI. My question is what is the quetiapine fumarate 150mg going to do? What are its affects going to be upon 5HT NE DA systems as an adjunct to the "California Rocket Fuel"
  5. Thanks for the warm welcome and the tips. I edited my entry so it might be a little easier to read now. I hope it helps.
  6. Hello everyone. I am hopeful in joining this community that it will help in my recovery. Here is a brief bit of info on what I am going through. I suffer from PSTD and many related cor-morbid disorders. I was predisposed to anxiety and depressive disorders as it is quite frequent in both sides of my family. I endured ongoing traumatic events of abuse from the ages of 12-14. I developed PTSD and a host of other disorders. I briefly tried psychotherapy and medications but did not enjoy the side effects that came along with them. I self medicated through the use of drugs and alcohol throughout high school and into my late twenties (29yo now). I went through good periods and bad periods. When I was working I was always successful. I was off and on in continuing my education. I dropped out of high school and got my GED. I went to junior college but then stopped to work full time. There were periods were I would work full time and go to school full time and there were periods where I would only go to school full time and not work. Throughout this whole time I was self medicating and just trying to deal with underlying problems I had, and desperately just tried to keep them internal. I broke up with my girlfriend who I was living with and moved home with my parents shortly before finishing my bachelors degree about 10 months ago. Shortly after graduating I had final falling out with the ex which sent me into depression. Although now with no obligation to her, no obligation to school, no obligation to work, I was happy to just sit in my room and not have to deal with the anxiety that came from the outside world. My depression got worse the more I stayed in my room. My anxiety also got worse. I developed agoraphobia, something that I had mild symptoms of before but I attributed it more to anxiety than anything else. During this time I was not self medicating. After about 6 or 7 months I finally reached a breaking point and had to ask my parents for help. They are very supportive and I think I probably wouldn't be alive without them. I went back to my psychiatrist whom I have occasionally gone to over the years and whom I initially started seeing 15 years ago. I was ready to try some meds and psychotherapy to get better. I've read posts on websites like these for quite a while and they are in itself a form of therapy. As I am starting new medications now, I join in hopes of getting some of my questions about medications answered and general support through this and other forums and hope to soon be better.
