My son was diagnosed schizophrenic in 45 minutes four years ago. He is currently on 1200 mg seroquel and most lethargic and lacking energy. I wonder if his negative symptoms are more a result of the medication than the label?? How does he go about reducing and possibly eventually going off the medication?? His visits with the psychiatrist are nothing more than med checks, very little is being done to treat the person instead of the label. I recognize that going off medication is a long process, how do we go about finding a health care professional who is willing to monitor this? Otherwise how do we do this by ourselves?
