My 27 year old son diagnosed sza is on Seroquel and risperidone. He also takes lithium and epival. He recently developed severe palpitations and the pdoc decided to taper the Seroquel which is being done over the last few weeks. He seemed ok for a few days but the last 3 days his symptoms are getting worse. His language is aggressive and he’s not engaging much with us. He’s afraid to leave the house.
My question is, could this be a relapse or is it severe withdrawal because of Seroquel tapering? We can’t go back to titrating up the AP because this AP never really helped him. It’s a scary situation we are in right now. His pdoc is on vacation and we are lost😞
If someone has gone through something like this with meds withdrawal please I would like to hear about what you did.
