Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. If you've been stable and having good results from the seroquel for three years, I would first rule out the other possible causes of eye pain (with the ophthalmologist) and dizziness (with your PCP or ENT). Then, if nothing else is found to be causing them, then it might be a good idea to try stopping the seroquel if possible, to see if it resolves.
Customer: Have you ever had other people on seroquel with this problem? It takes a long time to come off the seroquel I will have to start all over to find another med for my depression
Doctor DanB : I've never had a patient with these problems on seroquel that we were able to positively identify seroquel as the culprit.
Doctor DanB : While its not impossible that the seroquel is causing this, I think it is relatively unlikely.
Customer: I hope it is a virus that is causing this eye and dissiness problem , that would mean that I would not have to come off the seroquel and fall deep into depression. Again. Can I talk to a psychiatrist online to. Clint
Doctor DanB : I think that is the most likely scenario--a virus and not the drug.
Doctor DanB : Yes, there are psychiatrists online, I believe.
Customer: Hello doctor Would it be possible to talk to a phsyciatist. Clint
Customer: Question for a psychiatrist. I have been taking seroquel xr for about three years and I have developed sore eye muscles and dizziness when I look up down left to right. My dose is 750mg per day in one. Dose. Do you think it might be the seroquel
Customer: hello dr Dan b. How do I go about asking a phsciatrist a question
Doctor DanB :
Clint, i'm sorry but I was out of town for the afternoon yesterday. As it turns out, we unfortunately do not have psychiatrists on JustAnswer. Sorry.
