Quetiapine is a second-generation (atypical) antipsychotic. It’s approved by the FDA for schizophrenia, acute bipolar mania/mixed and depression, and bipolar maintenance (as an add-on to lithium or divalproex). The extended-release form is also approved as an add-on for depression. Though its approved uses are limited, it’s widely used off-label as a single therapy for depression, anxiety, insomnia, OCD, and other conditions.

Hi, this is Larry Hobbs @ Fatnews.com http://fatnews.com/ https://twitter.com/fatnews I am going to read a section from this wonderful book, Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare by Prof. Peter Gøtzsche, MD. The section is bout drug-induced side effects in the elderly. The reason that I am telling this story is that the SAME THING happened to my mother. My mother suffered from drug-induced side effects for 40 years, and tragically for the last 3.5 years of her life, and yet my mother's doctors were blind to this. Prof Gøtzsche says: We know very little about polypharmacy Most patients are in treatment with several drugs, particularly elderly patients. A Swedish study of 762 people living in nursing homes found that 67% were prescribed 10 or more drugs. One-third were in treatment with three or more psychoactive drugs; around half received antidepressants or tranquillisers; and anticholinergic drugs were used in one-fifth. All these drugs may create cognitive impairment, confusion and falls, which carry a considerable mortality among the elderly. The symptoms are often misinterpreted by the patients and their carers as signs of old age or impending disease, e.g. dementia or Parkinson's, but when doctors stop the medicines, many of the patients apparently become many years younger... and become active again. My most important contribution to internal medicine was to stop drugs in newly admitted patients, only to realise that, quite often, the patients arrived doped with the same drugs by their general practitioner next time they were admitted. We know very little about what happens when patients take many drugs... A randomised trial showed that drug reduction [reducing the number of drugs that a person is taking] lowered both mortality and admission to hospital a subsequent study in 70 patients where number of drugs was reduced from 7.7 to 4.4 per patient showed that 88% reported global improvement in health and most had improvement in cognitive functions. Here is a typical story, apart from the fact that few elderly people are that lucky: When my father was 88, he was hospitalised for dizziness, which occurred after his medication was increased. In the hospital, he was given more medication which made him confused, frightened, and incoherent. Then his doctor transferred him to a nursing home, where he was dirty, crying, begging people to hold his hand, and listed as DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) -- and given still more medication. I convinced the doctor at the nursing home to discontinue all medication, and I hired a private nurse to give my father an organic diet -- rich in fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, nuts, and seeds. In 3 days, my father made such a miraculous recovery that the nurses on the ward didn't recognise him. When I called to speak to my father, he was back to his old self, and told me that he was bored and looking for a card game. My father was discharged the next day, and died several years later, while relaxing peacefully at home. The SAME THING happened to my mother! My mother suffered from drug-induced side effects for 40 years. My mother suffered tragically from drug-induced side effects for the last 3.5 years of her life. I watched this happen to my mother for the last 17 years of her life. I watched my mother spiral downhill for the last 3.5 years of her life as doctors gave her more and more drugs which only caused my mother to get worse and worse and worse. Literally EVERY problem my mother had over the last 17 years of her life was due to a drug-induced side effect. I can tell you every problem that my mother had and every drug that caused this for the last 17 years of her life. ...and yet my mother's doctors were completely and total BLIND to this! I told my parents this for 17 years... and I SCREAMED it for the last 3.5 years of my parents' life but I could NOT convince my parents of this because my mother's doctors were saying THE EXACT OPPOSITE! My mother's doctors told my parents that if they could just find the right drugs or find the right combination of drugs or find the right dose of drugs, that they could solve my mother's problems. But these psychiatric drugs had failed my mother for 40 years! My mother saw at least 17 doctors over the last 17 years of her life, and every one on them were completely and totally blind to the fact that my mother was suffering from drug-induced side effects. It is a systemic problem with doctors — that doctors are BLIND to drug-induced side effects. It is not my intention to insult doctors by saying this, but I must tell the truth about this in order to try and save anyone I can from the same suffering that my mother went through for so many years. I've learned 9 things about doctors over the past 20 years. The first thing I learned is that doctors are blind to drug-induced side effects.
www.SacredSerpent.Webs.Com www.Facebook.Com/SacredStarSeedSerpent Bgingerelli@gmail.com In this brief discussion , I elaborate upon the various detrimental health consequences of frequent alcohol consumption & abuse. I discuss my dangerous and frightening delirium tremens alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Delirium Tremens is the most severe form of alcohol withdrawals - which shocks the entire nervous system and consciousness into a delirious state which resembles a bad psychedelic experience. The withdrawals are often accompanied with strong and vivid hallucinations of bugs, negative entities, death, and a strong sense of deep impending doom. The heart rate is skyrocketed to such a degree that it can be clearly heard by others, and the body will go from being ice cold to drenched in sweat. I hope that this video can either help people get off the bottle, or inspire them to stay away from alcohol all-together. There are better things to be drinking. FROM WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delirium_tremens Delirium tremens (DTs) is a rapid onset of confusion usually caused by withdrawal from alcohol. When it occurs, it is often three days into the withdrawal symptoms and lasts for two to three days. People may also see or hear things other people do not. Physical effects may include shaking, shivering, irregular heart rate, and sweating.Occasionally, a very high body temperature or seizures may result in death. Alcohol is one of the most dangerous drugs to experience withdrawal from. Delirium tremens typically only occurs in people with a high intake of alcohol for more than a month. A similar syndrome may occur with benzodiazepine and barbiturate withdrawal. Withdrawal from stimulants such as cocaine does not have major medical complications. In a person with delirium tremens it is important to rule out other associated problems such as electrolyte abnormalities, pancreatitis, and alcoholic hepatitis. Prevention is by treating withdrawal symptoms. If delirium tremens occurs, aggressive treatment improves outcomes. Treatment in a quiet intensive care unit with sufficient light is often recommended. Benzodiazepines are the medication of choice with diazepam, lorazepam, chlordiazepoxide, and oxazepam all commonly used. They should be given until a person is lightly sleeping. The antipsychotic haloperidol may also be used. The vitamin thiamine is recommended.Mortality without treatment is between and 40%. Currently death occurs in about 1% to 4% of cases. About half of people with alcoholism will develop withdrawal symptoms upon reducing their use. Of these, three to five percent develop DTs or have seizures.The name delirium tremens was first used in 1813; however, the symptoms were well described since the 1700s.The word "delirium" is Latin for "going off the furrow," a plowing metaphor. It is also called shaking frenzy and Saunders-Sutton syndrome. Nicknames include barrel-fever, blue horrors, bottleache, bats, drunken horrors, elephants, gallon distemper, quart mania, pink spiders, among others. The main symptoms of delirium tremens are nightmares, agitation, global confusion, disorientation, visual and auditory hallucinations, tactile hallucinations, fever, high blood pressure, heavy sweating, and other signs of autonomic hyperactivity (fast heart rate and high blood pressure). These symptoms may appear suddenly, but typically develop two to three days after the stopping of heavy drinking, being worst on the fourth or fifth day. Also, these "symptoms are characteristically worse at night". In general, DT is considered the most severe manifestation of alcohol withdrawal and occurs 3–10 days following the last drink. Other common symptoms include intense perceptual disturbance such as visions of insects, snakes, or rats. These may be hallucinations, or illusions related to the environment, e.g., patterns on the wallpaper or in the peripheral vision that the patient falsely perceives as a resemblance to the morphology of an insect, and are also associated with tactile hallucinations such as sensations of something crawling on the subject—a phenomenon known as formication. Delirium tremens usually includes extremely intense feelings of "impending doom". Severe anxiety and feelings of imminent death are common DT symptoms. DT can sometimes be associated with severe, uncontrollable tremors of the extremities and secondary symptoms such as anxiety, panic attacks and paranoia. alcohol,alcohol withdrawal,alcohol withdrawals,dilirium tremens,DTS,the DTS,delirium tremens,alcohol detox,beer,hard alcohol,booze,drinking,drinking alcohol,dangers of alcohol,alcoholism,alcohol abuse,AA,sacred serpent,whiskey,binge drinking,dr cassar
