I have a severe problem with racing thoughts, im on seroquel 25mg wich is the minimum dosage on a week so far and it only seems to be getting worse.First i have to inform you i was on cipralex for 5 weeks wich made the situation much worse, since then ive stopped taking that ssri. I have extreme anxiety so i think thats why seroquel isnt helping as much as it should. Psychiatrist quote:"You have developped a thought pattern that might lead one day to schizophrenia in the future if left untreated" it feels like im stuck in a state of limbo really and i feel "nothing" because of very high anxiety from my condition by nothing i mean taste, touching feeling, seeing, even walking i barely feel it. As soon as i take a rivotril however all my feelings go back to normal (Anti-anxiety medication), but it only lasts like 20-30 minutes before my racing thoughts bring my anxiety up again.
I have a history of self-conscious thinking over my looks wich ive dealt with but wich occasionally bothers me(increasing my anxiety).
If anyone can tell me what i should do(increase seroquel dose?) it would be GREATLY apreciated and i would owe you my life :)
