Fibromyalgia PTSD Insomnia Migraines Chronic Pain Medication
1 Reply RSS
I'm seeing my pain doctor and psychiatrist this week to get on a proper pain regimen for debilitating fibromyalgia, severe insomnia with central sleep apnea, PTSD/anxiety from significant abuse I'm working through, chronic daily headaches (advanced migraines), and chronic pain from multiple surgeries (pelvic, back, neck...) Because my doctors don't collaborate I need to suggest options to them. I am sensitive to many medications and have tried a lot over the years. I want my life back. I'm smart and resourceful and at my wits end. I'm on low dose Seroquel for sleep - too much daytime sedation, as Ambien and Trazodone don't work. I'm also on Tramadol, Ativan and Skelaxin during the day. I can't drive, work or function well on this plan. Amitriptyline cause...

Seroquel and weight gain
133 Replies RSS
Is anyone else experiencing weight gain from seroquel? I still work out the same as always, and eat the same way, but I have gained over 20 pounds since i started seroquel 2 months ago. 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...

Does Seroquel Show Up On A Drug Test NO
1 Reply RSS
NO Seroquel does NOT show up on a drug test. Seroquel is usually not tested for unless specifically asked for which is highly unlikely and if you are getting a positive result on a drug test you might want to make sure that its actually seroquel and not something else. ## How long (days) stopping seroquil until it doesn't register if tested for?

I have been taking Seroquel for a year now for insomnia. Anybody else take Seroquel for this?

can i take seroquel with methadone
3 Replies RSS
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 ??? ## You need to get off of seroquel right now, and educate yourself. How can you be so stupid? Combining a tranquilizer strong enough to kill a lion, with methadone? A medication that takes 6 hours to kick it, so you ca...

quetapel side effects
1 Reply RSS
hi, I have been taking quetapel for about 2 months, they really do seem to help with my anxiety and help me get to sleep, but I have noticed I get dizzy even when sitting down, and I hear a strange noise in my ears?? is this normal? ## Hello, Chelsea! How are you? Those can be side effects of this medication, as reported by the U.S. FDA. You may also experience nausea, headache and weight changes. However, it would be best to have this checked out, because it has also been known to cause blood pressure elevations, which could also cause such symptoms. Is there anything else I can help with?

What do I take it for what is your dose and how long till it worked urgent help ## I personally haven't tried Seroquel myself, but if you're looking for more reviews on the topic there are a few other discussion threads here that I can introduce you to... This first thread has almost 100 responses relating to the side effects of Seroquel (particularly weight gain): Discuss/Seroquel-and-weight-gain-162991.htm The second thread seems to discuss a broader perspective of the drug and what other's experiences have been like while taking it: Discuss/Seroquel-163556.htm Hopefully you can find some of the feedback you're looking for in either of those discussions. Is this medication something your doctor recommended? ## I am teen how can i came fat please give me medicine ## I...

yellow or peach tablet with APO 25 on one side and nothing on the other.
2 Replies RSS
I'm not really sure what to call the colour; somewhere between peachy and yellowy. The pills are about 6 mm, round, and scored on one side, down the middle between the APO and the 25. The other side is entirely blank. I've been all over several pill identifiers and such, but the closest I get is the same description with an added mark... one of them is a diuretic and the other is an antipsychotic/sedative and neither are the same as these three little pills I found. Any leads? ## Have you tried asking a local pharmacist? Most online identifiers only list U.S. tablets and I know many of the ones with these types of markings are from Canada…..and the problem there is that in order to try to curb the influx of fakes, Canada has started keeping their markings under wraps, so t...

17 Replies RSS
Hi, Im a 23yr old female, have been taking Seroquel for about 2 months now. I had anxiety, racing thoughts, overthink, and couldnt sleep some nights, so my doctor prescribed me this. After a breakup and miscarraige it helped me get my life back together, I can think so clearly now and am so much happier within myself. It has stabilzed my moods! I want to get off it because the side effects I have read scare me - diabetes, insomnia etc + the groggy mornings are hard but do-able. Soo last night I didnt take it, had an OK sleep, waking up every couple of hours but this morning I have anxiety back and dont know what to think. Is it possible you can get psychologically addicted to it? I dont want to stop taking it because its worked wonders in my life, but I know its not good for me and the ...

can you die on seroquel if you take too much and how much is too much? ## im not sure ## My little brother was prescribed seroquel xr 50 and over dosed on a little over 20 tablets. He was rushed to the hospital and had his stomach pumped and slept for hours on end after. Im sure if you were to down a bottle you aren't going to wake up. ## Definitely. Had 200mgs and slept for 24 hours. Be very careful with this drug since it's easy for it to stop your breathing ## Should Seroquel be taken with other medications at the same time. ## i just started the drug i felt like it was helping but i guess my body is use to it ## This is the most dangerous drug I've ever taken. It also is a major cause of diabetes and high blood pressure. ## If I take 130 X 25mg, will it kill me? plz don...

Seroquel Xr weight gain
5 Replies RSS
I was prescribed seroquel xr only for sleep 150 mg for about 3 to 4 years. Gained about 30 lbs Read on other forums there is no hope getting the weight off when you wean off the drug. Well not true for me anyway. I have been off for 3 months and have lost 16 lbs so far and not dieting. Nothing So wanted to give others hope that it is possible. ## Hi Donna Weikel, It's quite unfortunate that some prescription medications can cause weight gain, but at least you were able to lose the weight you gained while on Seroquel xr once you stopped taking it! Everyone's body is different so even though some people may not have luck with losing the weight, it doesn't mean that it will be that way for everyone. I'm sure your post will be very helpful to those currently dealing with wei...

Weight gain on Seroquel
1 Reply RSS
I am on 300mg of seroquel, & 4mg of xanax per day since my return from Afghanistan for ptsd anxiety attacks bipolar and agoraphobia. I also take morphine, soma & 300mg of gabapentin for pain. I broke a few vertebrae & was also shot. I maintained my weight since I was a teen, but since the medication I've gained 30lbs & I do the same workout since I was 15 & no matter what I do can't lose weight. Can the seroquel be causing this? Or do you think it's a combination of what I take??? Please help. I've tried to increase my workouts along with every diet that's proven by a reputable source & maybe lose 5lbs, within a week it's back. ## Hello, Johnny! How are you?

How Long Does Seroquel Stay In Your System
3 Replies RSS
i take 300 mg a day and it takes 4-5 weeks to clear out of your system ## The half-life of Seroquel, which contains the active ingredient Quetiapine is roughly 6 hours and, in general, it takes 5 to 6 half-lives to clear out of your body, so the actual clearance time would be only 30 to 36 hours. It can take 4 weeks, or so, for your body to adjust to not having it and return to normal, but it doesn't take that long to actually clear the drug from your body. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Quitiapine Fumarate 50 mg, how long does it take to clear for a drug test. It's only used to get a deep sleep and my husband has a rx, I plan to ask my doctor for it next time I see her But in case I go to test for this new job I'd like to know. And do they even look for this ...

Seroquel effects on muscles and skin
2 Replies RSS
I would like to know if anyone has experienced skin and muscle mass changes while on Seroquel? I was put on this medication by my psychiatrist almost a year ago to help with manic depressive disorder and sleep problems. At first it seemed to do a wonderful job with minimal side effects (increased appetite and a bit of a dry mouth). I then was given a gradual increase in dosage when sleep problems started to become a problem again. At the increased dosage of 400 mg daily, I noticed that my skin was suddenly taking on a crinkly, crepe paper like appearance and there was a dramatic change in my leg and arm muscle mass with dramatic weakness and leg muscle pain so severe at night that it awakens me from sleep. My skin has become so paper thin that when I shave my legs, they bleed. At the ag...

False Positive for Benzo with Seroquel
25 Replies RSS
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...
