Gee 'Stimulant', you post under more than 8 different usernames..why?

I know why, you are a scientologist sent to these forums to tell people that mental illness is not real and the problem is all spiritual because there is no such thing as chemical imbalance. So tell us all Stimulant/going/Peter/Guess/Le per/Guess Who/oing boingo/ Dublin Org scientologist. If the 'meat'(scientologists believe your brain is just meat) runs on chemicals/neurons, why can there not be an imbalance in something when the something runs on chemicals produced from within said 'meat'?

Yet another apologist for the psychiatric profession.
"Kill everyone...they are only riff-raff".

Mary is actually a paid correspondent and apologist for the psychiatric profession. Her remit is to dupe people into thinking psychiatric drugging of people is okay.
What utterly passes this person by is the amount of groundswell against this sordid profession and its bum buddies, the pharmaceutical industry.
They have the blood of millions on their hands.

MarySue-
If you have ever taken Seroquel, you would know how severe the side effects can be (see previous posts). The American Psychiatric Association itself admits there is no evidence of a correlation between bipolar or schizophrenia and a brain "chemical imbalance", except in patients who have taken antipsychotic medications. Decades of reseach has failed to connect any mental illness to a chemical imbalance or any physical cause. Disorders caused by infections, tumors and degenerative conditions like alzheimers can quickly be identified.
Psychiatrists ose force, coersion and deception to get patients to take dangerous medications, and then leave them on these drugs even when life threatening conditions like diabetes develop. Psychiatry has degenerated into a drug culture, with only one fallback, ECT. Psychologists and social workers have been marginalized when comparied to the high priestesses, psychiatrists.
I am not a scientologist, and didn't even know what a scientologist is until reading the posts by pharmacutical industry apologists.

Again, show me. And I dont mean some blog or a Tucows/GoDaddy website neither. <snipped generic CCHR-type spiel. Understand, I know who to search website details and will find if they are legitimate or not. Now surprise me and come back with something that will prove science as being wrong,mkay?

Im sure you can link directly to scientific studies, double blind testings, PET scans etc?
Because I can show you hubbards own words that demonstrate why scientology opposes all forms of 'mental health' and not just psychiatry. In fact, scientology also would like to take over ALL fields of medicine.

Why is it only specific people feel the need to say they arent scientologists and end up turning out to be scientologists in disguise?

Even the American Psychiatric Association's Website!!!
Cat got your fingers? Maybe you just can't produce the evidence for the "chemical imbalance" theory that the entire APA, pharmacutical industry and related researchers have been unable to find in over 50 years.
Were Roosevelt and Churchill totalitarian stalinist dicatators just because they fought with Stalin to defeat nazism?

That link doesn't say anything of the sort. The paper you have provided makes no mention of a connection or lack there of, anywhere in the article. You're clutching at straws again, typical scientology behavior.

Now please provide evidence of your claims. Actual evidence, not just a link that happens to have series of words you put into a search engine.

And what would typical Scientology behaviour be my friend.
Would it be that they stare at you like Ursula Caberta says in Germany. Or maybe they smell....like the French government press officer said.

This smacks of religious racism!!!

Keep you poisonous religious racism off this Forum and stick to trying to defend the indefensible...namely psychiatry and its lovers, the pharmaceutical industry in their waltz of death

If you could actually read and not juat throw your scientology insults that have nothing to do with the effectiveness of antipsychotic medications or a biochemical imbalance basis for mental ilness, you would see there is no evidence for the APA's position. The release was a response to a challenge to produce evidence for the biochemical imbalance theory. The APA was unable to come up with one study proving the biochemical imbalance theory, and were only able to throw out vague generalities. I suggest you get a copy of the July 2007 issue of the American Journal of Psychiatry, published by the APA (notice the 50 pages of glossy ads paid for by the pharmacutical industry) and read the article about the efficacy and tolerability of Olanzapine, Quetiapine and Risperidone before you continue to defend this murderous industry.

i was prescribed a very low dose of seroquel and find that it's helped me focus better. i know that the general vibe in this forum is that seroquel is bad...but i kind of like it. My choice is either to stay on this, try a more formal mood stabilizer like depakote or struggle through life.
to me, the seroquel seems like the best choice because i can take it as needed.(though I'm beginning to think that might be daily.)
thoughts?
I would like to response your message regarding seroquel that you are taking at the moment, I'm currently taking seroquel daily which definitely helps me to concentrate better and thinking functionally clearer too. At first, I thought I'd lose my creative abilities but it does help me with a new dimension and new focus on creative ideation. Importantly, please remember everyone is different and trust your own instinct with your medications which may works for you but not working for anyone. Seroquel is working for me along with combination of other medication, effexor. So, good luck with your new meds.

Thanks Lou, i think you're right on about trusting my instincts.

i was also very concerned about the loss of creative thoughts (along with the zombie effect), but I've found that the increase in ability to concentrate allows me to actually think creatively (and productively) again. zooming thoughts is not necessarily creative...

Does anybody have anything positive to say about Seroquel ... lol ... My Dr. wants me to "try" it, can anybody tell me how long until you start to gain the weight? Not looking forward to that one ..

As well, has anybody taken Remeron and Seroquel and have knowledge of which makes you gain weight faster?

Thanks for your input:)

Lucy please bare in mind that a lot of the negative responses about seroquel come from scientologists who are hiding their affiliation. Part of their holocaust revisionist war on psychiatry (Mental coca-cola wars.

Posts which seem aggressive or to be attacking people who have positive comments are usually from scientologists.

From this thread I can see several. I can see from this thread that genuine posts from real posters, not shills, would seem to be from snoopy, tee, Lou and prosandcons. Mary Sue is a genuine poster to these boards but has become embroiled in countering the scientologists.

"Scientologist" is a codeword used by the American Psychiatric Association and the pharmacutical industry to discredit all opponents of their mind-controlling and destroying poisons like Seroquel, Risperdal and Zyprexa. Anyone who has taken these "medications" and has a brain left afterwords knows what these drugs do. All mind-altering substances from illegal street drugs like crack and crank to the latest "FDA approved" medications do the same thing - alter normal brain chemistry. Drugging patients into Parkinsonism, just look at anyone who has been on Thorazine or Prolixin for very long, is the latest medical torture psychitry has come up with to "treat" the "mentally ill". The pharmacutical craze of the last 55 years follows close on the heels of waterboarding (the torture used on Khalid Sheik Mohhamad to force his confession to planning 9/11), infecting patients with malaria (perhaps the biggest infectious killer of humans), metrozol shock (an extremely painful poisoning, similar to lethal injection), insulin shock (near fatal hypoglycemia), lobotomy (butchering the brain with an ice pick), and electro-convulsive therapy (nearly fatal electrocution, with many similarities to the electric chair). Wow, who's complaining about scientologists?

My son who is 9 now was suicidal last winter 2007. this winter2008 he is homocidal. I felt i had no choice as he was coming after me with the knife. I put him in inpatient. They put him on seraquel. He actually seems to be a normal kid now. I guess i should find out how many mgs though. Sounds like less is better. He didn't seem sluggish, or sad. I'll post again after a few weeks of observation. I would have never given my kid this medicine unless I felt he needed it. I don't believe in that. If he seems to be experienceing any bad effects in the slightest way, I am taking him off. thanks for letting me know what to look for.

It's time America wakes up to the truth about drugs like Seroquel. Look at the data from every states poison control agency and see the volumes on suicides from overdoses of Seroquel. look at the FDA data on Seroquel and see where Astrazeneca hides the suicides by calling them "accidental overdoses" or "accidental injuries". The comparator drug used in Astrazenecas approval studies was at doses over what the FDA recommends for severe schizophrenia. Astrazeneca has conducted Seroquel studies and has failed repeatedly to publish those studies showing their drug caused harm. They only publish the studies where Seroquel in their opinion has an advantage.
I'm on seroquel for anxiety.(100mg--daily) I had been on a series of anti-depressants that pushed me to a manic state which led to three suicide attempts. All these drugs need to be taken with care. Unfortunatly, most doctors are so wrapped up by the drug companies that the paitents concerns are heard; but not listened to. I fear "soma" has arrived and we as paitents need to let the doctors and insurance companies know that their lack of concern is bullshit. My complaint to the hospital was "handled" by sending me an apology in the form of a $25 gift card. A gift card for almost killing me? The insurance company did nothing in their investigation either--the doctors word, even if they are outright lies, trumps anyone who has been in a locked psyche ward. I hope that seroquel does not lead me into this same world.
