Jamie's Pdoc finally called

This is actually a funny story. He (thank god) is going with the slow approach of adding one drug and taking one away. He wants me to get rid of the clonodine tonight, because they think it's giving him nightmares and night time hallucinations, and start him on seroquel.

He told me to give him one quarter of a 25mg tab of seroquel. He only weighs 36lbs. Now, have any of you guys ever seen a 25mg tab of seroquel? it's tiny, rounded, unscored and has a hard slippery coating.

I had to tell him this because there is no way I could cut them and he had never seen one. He called the pharmacy and the pharmacist is going to TRY to cut them.

I'm going to have to tip the guy when I pick it up. Unbelievable.

Glad to hear the Dr. finally called

ROFL, pharmacy's get such fun requests. Good luck with getting the pills cut.

So what's happening with the Ritilan?

Yeah!!! How funny, I can't imaging cutting themin 1/4's. I do cut Joiner's in 1/2 with a good cutter I invested in. No way you could do that with a knife. Good luck, Joienr takes Seroquel too & he is now sleeping all night long!!! I give it to him at about 7 or 7:30 so he will be sleepy by 8:30. Hope it help him sleep better.
