150 mg oral Pharms - Venlafaxine (daily)
  200 mg oral Pharms - Quetiapine (daily)
    smoked Cannabis (daily)


I've been taking effexor and seroquel for about 4 months for opiate addiction/withdrawal, insomnia, depressive schizoaffectice disorder (4 months clean from opiates). I've also been smoking cannabis daily for about 3 years.

To say the least, effexor and seroquel is a potent combination. The effexor is a seriously effective (and addictive, no matter what they say) antidepressant, in fact it's the only prescription antidepressant that I've got positive results from. The seroquel, is a fucking God-send. I haven't had a single taste of opiates in 4 months, and all I can say is effexor is keeping me clean and alive. Seroquel is keeping me calm and non-violent.

I only smoke high-grade Cannabis.
