Unfortunately my son is suffering from schizophrenia. He has chosen not to see the rest of the family any more but I suppose that is due to his illness and not something I should take personally. I am in contact with the people who care for him in the mental health facility though, and they were telling me that he is about to start a new drug, called quetiapine. I know he refused to take his last drugs because he was feeling lethargic and like he had a "liquid restraint". He was off meds after that, and it caused him, and everyone arond him, a lot of grief. I hope the new drugs will work for him. I am hoping to find out more about this quetiapine. I hope it will make him feel more comfortable. Are the side effects of quetiapine not as bad?
