leadinglady Posted July 8, 2011 Share Posted July 8, 2011 I had gastric bypass and am on 300 mg of Seroquel and 50 mg of Paxil a day and am having racing thoughts. I am also a recovering alcoholic and have been sober 13 days now. LOL Anyway, my chemical dependency counselor mentioned that because of my racing thoughts, she suspects my medication is not absorbing because of my 2009 gastric bypass. I've mentioned this to the psych before but he never takes me seriously. I don't think many have a lot of experience with gastric bypass patients. She mentioned I should be on a dissolving or liquid medication combination. This makes sense because usually 20 mg of Paxil would work for me--I've been on Paxil since I was 17. I'm 35 now. (FWIW I think the Paxil is why I ended up NEEDING gastric bypass in the first damn place) Anyway does anyone know what antipsychotic, mood stabilizers, and/or antidepressants dissolve or come in liquid form?
