My son has been hospitalized for just over a week due to his manic episodes and violent behavior. Some of you have told me about trying mood stabilizers . I discussed his medications with his social worker this morning and she told me that seroquel is used for both antipsychotic and a mood stabilizer. I would like to know what you guy think. They still have him on stratera as well as calonadine.Im curently waiting to hear from the doctor to possibly have him taken off stratera.
