A friend told me to cold turkey Seroquel

I probably shouldn’t post this but I need to get it off my chest. I’ve gone from 150 mg to 25 mg of Seroquel in the past year and had to be hospitalized in December 2019 because the withdrawal put me in an agitated depression and I was having suicidal thoughts. They let me out after dropping it from 50 to 25 and monitoring it for three days. The depression is gone and now I’m just stuck burning out the agitation/anxiety. 
 

I was talking with a friend tonight who told me I’m being a hypochondriac and to just cold turkey the rest of the dose, despite three doctors, this website, and tons of literature telling me to taper the rest. She’s had a street drug problem and she told me if she can stop them cold turkey after wasting eight years on them, I can cold turkey Seroquel after wasting 20 years on psych meds. 
 

I don’t think I’ll be talking to her for a while. I just needed to vent.

Hi Fleeing

 

FWIW, I agree with your decision.  Only you know your body and your tolerance for recovery.
