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. Once I passed their examination they gave me a bed and these medications to calm me down so I could get on my way. I believe I stayed in the hospital for about one week, full discharge was given. I don't want to mess with the law again. Thanks Dr. OZ is a great show. For regular TV

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).

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: I hope this helps! ## Can you take seroqel with a prolapsed hea...

Seroquel is working for me but I know I should get off it. Advice please!
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!

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 ...

Seroquel for dimentia patient
Should Seroquel be used on a 98 year old dimentia patient? ## I am sorry, there are no medical professionals on this site and only a doctor who is familiar with her medical history can decide what medications can best help her condition. ## I have seen it used for the elderly but not with increased confusion and high probability of falls. I am a nurse so i can not diagnose. Only tell you my observations.

Seroquel weight gain and coming off it
I gained 30 pounds on this drug and I hate it. My Dr prescribed me a high dose of 400 mg at night and then 25 mg three times a day a day for anxiety. Well I decided to stop taking it and taper myself off. Right now I'm down to 50mg at night. ## Hello, Pyper! How are you? Yes, many of these types of medications can cause weight gain as a side effect. How are you doing with such a drastic dosage cut? Any withdrawal symptoms, such as worsening depression or anxiety? How long were you taking it? ## Verwon I have been on Seroquel for one year. Yes I am experiencing a little increase in anxiety and depression, but its nothing I cant deal with. Besides, I already lost three pounds. Yippee..

found small round white pill with 50 on one side, not seroquel, help please.
So I found this pill, It's not seroquel as it doesn't match any of the pictures. It's small round and white, marked 50 on one side, it's blank on the other. The face and back aren't flat like the seroquel pills, they're rounded. I believe it may be Tramadol, though some posts online have said hydrocodone. I really would like to know as my brother is supposed to be clean of opiates and I hope he hasn't relapsed. I hope he isn't abusing anything, but opiates especially! Any help is appreciated. ## Hello, Liitke! How are you? Is the 50 pressed into the tablet? If so, I believe you may have found a 50mg Quetiapine tablet, it's an atypical antipsychotic. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, weight gain and somnolence.

I take 150 mg of Trazadone and 400 mg of Seroquel XR, and have just in the last week started taking 10 mg of Brintellix. I feel nauseated, shaky, and keep looking flushed it has been 6 days should i stop taking it? ## Yes, please contact your doctor immediately! The Trazodone increases the toxicity of the Brintellix via a serotonin reaction, you may be developing serotonin syndrome, which can be life threatening. How are you doing?

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...

Seroquel advice
I was prescribed Seroquel for insomnia after Ambion and other medications did not work for me. He only wrote me 30 of the 50mg coated tablets, stating that I may find what works for me and that typically people need between 200-400mg's/daily. throughout the last week, I have been sleeping every night with only an hour or two of being awake throughout which is leaps and bounds from how I was before the Seroquel. I have been taking 250mg at 8;30pm and all was going well until...oh s***, I only have 250mg's in my bottle and its a Friday night! with a busy schedule, I didn't realize until my GP's office was closed. it is now sunday morning and I have not slept since Saturday morning. My question: can I do anything to get a pharmacist to help me with one nights amount, taking...

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

Arrow symbol on one side QT on the other
I found a small baggie of pills. They are smaller than a graval and coated orange over a white inside. They have an arrow symbol on one side and QT on the other. ## sounds like you got yourself a bag of generic 25 mg seroquel , people use them to put themselves to sleep after a hard night of partying , and if your stay awake through the sleepy stage if the pill, you will trip the f*** out and its pretty fun ## found an small round orange pill with qt on one side and looks like an arrow on the other but dosent say the mg was wondering what they are? ## @Jessica, From what I could gather, there is a round peach/orangish colored tablet with QT on one side and > on reverse side, that contains 25mgs of Quetiapine (Seroquel).
