epilepsy and bipolar
My sister takes take her tegretal and seroquel do these have a horrible impact upon each other he seems like she's drunk all day. I believe its the serequel. I just wany her to have some normacy un her life amd she definitely cant fuction lije this. ## Hello, Laura! How is your sister doing? I'm glad you posted your concern, because she does need to speak to her doctor. She could be developing an issue with serotonin or something else, which has the potential to be dangerous. Normal side effects to Seroquel include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. How long has she been taking them? ## she just started taking the tegretol again about a month ago. Shes been on serequel since april.

False Positive for Benzo with Seroquel
I am in rehab at the moment and have tested 3 times for benzos but im only on Seroquel, Lyrica and Methadone. I have heard that Seroquel can test positive for benzos and need to know if this is true. Im going to lose my son if I dont get this cleared up and I HAVE NOT TAKEN ANY BENZOS!! ## I have looked up information on this, as well as a listing of what drugs can cause false positives and no, there is no scientific proof, anywhere, that Seroquel can give a false positive for Benzodiazepines. I have also double checked the Lyrica and Methadone and neither of those will do it, either. I'm sorry, have you tried asking them more specifics about the test? Do you know what type of test they are doing? Have you taken anything else? Please post back and let me know, even if it was just so...

I dont want to stop taking it becasue i finally found a drug that helps, but this is an unacceptable side effect to me, anyone have any tips for dealing with this? ## Tell your doctor he might be able to help. ## I have been taking seroquel for about six months now and I have actually lost 16lbs. I take a dose of 400mg a day and have not hadd any problems. I have not even changed my diet or my exercise habits (which aren't the best). I do not have any side effects maybe it is a combination of the seroquel and other medicines you are taking? Seroquel actually began as a medicine given after surgery as...

false positives
I tested positive for cocaine. I take 200mg of Seroquell. I have taken tylenol pm and nyquil for my flu. I was wondering can this give me a false reading? I am trying to get my daughter back and they are telling me that I tested positive for drugs when I dont eaven drink PLease help me. Maybe between the food I have been eating and the over the counter drugs with my prescription could cause this. ## Samantha, Is there any way you can produce proof that you have a prescription for Seroquel? Certain drugs definitely cause false positives. About the over the counter meds you took, I don't think those would be an issue for drug tests. I wish you the best, and hope that this situation can be resolved for you! James ## Question: my doc presc'd seroquel to help with my anxiety. However...

I'mm about to get kicked out of my housing for this false positive. Can anyone HELP!! ## Tom, would it be possible to get a doctors note or a pharmacists note explaining that you are being prescribed Seroquel ?

asap seroquel question
Dcfs is on my case and I have to do random drug screenings. I took Seroquel, will I fail the urine test? What will it show up as? And how long does it stay in your system? ## Seroquel contains the active ingredient Quetiapine, it is most commonly used to treat Schizphrenia and Bipolar Disorder. If you have a prescription for it, you should inform them of this, when you are tested, because it has been known to cause false positives for Amphetamines. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Hey I took seroquel 50mg lastnight and I got to do a drug test in the morning. Will it read a positive result

Medical aid wants to change chronic meds
Medical aid wants me to change chronic meds. I'm bipolar and are on Lamitor 300mg, Dopaquel 200mg and Venlor 225mg. They want me to use in their words a "cheaper" medicine like seroquel instead of Venlor despite motivational letters from my psyhiatrist. He is after all the treating specialist that walked a long way with me in getting the right combination that works. I have been on many different ones until I settled with these meds.They refuse to pay for the venlor even though i use the generic efegen. I'm already on Dopaquel which is the same as the Seroquel, in other words it would be a duplication. I don't think this is fair it is after all a PMB condition. Will it have the same effect if I change the meds. I don't want to but would like to know if somebody has

Avoiding Seroquel drug interactions
My Mum is diagnosed Parkinsons Dimentia or Lewy Body Dementia. She has been prescribed and has been taking low dose Seroquel (25mg) which dose has been dropped to 12.5mg approx 6 weeks ago. The drugs Mum is on aren't working for her (she is very sensitive to Benzo lines and other drugs) and I'm discussing with her Doctor the feasibility of switching to cholinesterase inhibitor drugs instead. Rivastignmine (Exelon) is one of those drugs but I note it does moderately interact with Seroquel. As Mum is incredibly sensitive to drugs and their effects, I'd rather Mum be completely off Seroquel before commencing something such as Rivastignmine. What period of time would be a safe duration to suggest that the Seroquel would no longer be in her system? ## Approximately 36 hours, but ...

peach pill 93 1918
found the same pill in a medical ride found out it is 25 mg sequel/generic! ## Hi mzmarsha, From what I could gather, it seems that you are reading the imprint upside down. The correct imprint is actually listed as "93 8161". But to answer your question, yes, it is a generic version of Seroquel, containing 25mgs of Quetiapine fumarate. This medication is an atypical antipsychotic indicated for the treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, as well as depressive disorders. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Quetiapine Details Hope this helps!

seroquel hangovers
I am taking Seroquel for a depressive episode that began almost three months ago, gradually increasing the dosage until I have now been at 150 mg. Seroquel xr for the past 24 days. Throughout this time I have suffered severe hangovers from the Seroquel (drowsiness, severe headache, lack of energy). My psychiatrist tells me that these side effects will lessen or disappear as I build up my tolerance to the drug, but now I've gone 24 days without increasing the dosage and the side effects continue. I am taking solely Seroquel xr (not ir) and try to take it as early in the evening as possible, usually anytime from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Do these side effects disappear eventually at the 150 mg. dosage or should I begin tapering off this drug? I also heard that the side effects disappear ...

can i take seroquel with methadone
I think I'm having a bad side effect. Like hitters and really bad anxiety. Need help. Please. I'm on 50mg of seroquel and 280 mg methadone daily. ## Hello, Peter! How are you doing? Some caution does need to be taken, when taking these medications together, because they can increase the toxicity of each other, so that could be what's causing your problem. Have you consulted your doctor? You may need them to make a dosage adjustment. ## I am on 101mg of methadone (9yrs) and just got prescribed elival for sleep. Will the elival put me in methadone withdrawal ???

Want my Life Back
Please help me get of these medication it was given to me by a doctor, I believe they gave me three Ciplerex, Seroquel, Seroquel XR. At the time, they found me I was clearly Out of my Mind.

I don't want to mess with the law again. Thanks Dr. OZ is a great show. For regular TV

seroquil / linked to mitral valve prolapse
can seroquil be a cause of mitral valve prolapse ## Hi Monica, While I haven't found any information relating Seroquel (Quetiapine) to Mitral valve prolapse, I did find "fast or irregular heartbeat" to be a severe side effect associated with this medication. I do wonder though if this side effect, in and of itself, can eventually lead to Mitral valve prolapse? If you're experiencing any unusual or disabling side effects by taking Seroquel, then I would recommend asking your doctor about switching medications or opting for a more natural alternative to the drug. You may also want to take a look at Seroquel's list of side effects, for reference: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001030/#a698019-sideEffects I hope this helps! ## Can you take seroqel with a prolapsed hea...
