Our expert says:
Sounds like what are called Parkinsonian or extrapyramidal effects, but your doctor is WRONG if he says these only occur with the older antipsychotics - yes, they were more common with those older drugs, but can occur with quite a number of more recent meds, too. Especially in complex combinations. It absolutely certainly IS possible, even on newer drugs
Some of us are more sensitive to such side-effects, dose matters, and anti-parkinsonian meds can be added to reduce these nuisance effects ( like Akineton ).
You are on a most unusually complex combination of meds, and how they will ultimately impact on the brain chemistry that can cause these side-effects is hard to predict, given their direct and indirect and interactive effects.
You need to discuss all this in detail with your doc. Seroquel is primarily and antidepressant, but as it is sedative, can be used perhaps to help one sleep. I don't know why you are receiving the Concerta, which, I think, can cause these side-effects. Sometimes one has to plan a trade-off between benefits and side-effects, when choosing a drug combination.
