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 and weight gain
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...

seroquel for insomnia
I have been taking Seroquel for a year now for insomnia. Anybody else take Seroquel for this? I have looked around and it doesn't even seem that Seroquel is normally given to someone for this. ## I also have been taking seroquel for insomnia for about a year and a half now.I must say,my D.R tried every sleeping pill out there on me.This is the only thing that has worked for me,i've never had a sleepless nite since.

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...

seroquel please respond if u use it
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).

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.

Does Seroquel Enhance weight gain
I have taken one 100 Mg tablet of seroquel and noticed it can enhance weight gain. Has anyone had any experience with this. I am overweight, and have lost 14 lbs and cannot gain any weight. Please let me know. ## JAMES, I can not stop eating!! This med. will be great for anorexia nervosa! I've taken 5 pills @ 25mg each. I just want to sleep and eat.

seroquel withdrawals
I've been taking seroquel xr 200mg x 2 a day. I've been taking it for a year and a half now and I'm wanting to have a baby but I'm scared to death of the withdrawals. I've read some scary stories as well as dangers of the drug I wasn't aware of. Any advise/suggestions? ## Hello, Niki! How are you? I would suggest consulting your doctor. They will be able to help you with a proper and safe way to taper off of the medication, before you become pregnant. That would be far better than trying to get ideas on internet. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I've tried to taper off with my doctors approval but I was got so sick after changing the dosage one time. I was hoping there may be a vitamin or a supplement to help with the withdrawals.

Seroquel being prescribed along with other medications
First, should Seroquel be given to a mentally retarded man, who can not communicate to the Dr(s) if he was having any side effects to this medication? Heard it is a really heavy duty medication and must be prescribed by a physcian, very carefully. Also should it be taken along with other medications that he has been prescribed? ## It is an antipsychotic medication and they can be pretty powerful, but they are commonly prescribed to these types of patients, just as much as they are to someone with a normal mental capacity. He should just be closely monitored by his family and doctors for any side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, sedation and the development of diabetes. More on it here: As to whether or not it can be taken with other medications, it really depends on the specific med...

how to tapper off quetiapine
Hi evryone, does anyone know how to come off 500mgs quetiapine safely after 2.5 years? Many thanks, ## If you're like me, the drug makes you drowsy, and you need to speak up and discuss this with your doctor and bring the dose down over the years. It's almost certain there is some substantial dose you need, say, to sleep well, but it's quite a powerful drug and the side effects can be debilitating. Every 25 or 50mg is quite a lot, and needs two weeks for you to observe and be comfortable with the changes. It's not like going off completely, and well worth trying to reduce.

Then she increased the reperidone it to 4 mg then week later took me of the resperidone and switch me to seroquel 200 mg then she switched the dose to 300 mg but when she sent the prescription to the pharmacy she sent the seroquel XR 300 mg. I made a mistake for the first week I was on seroquel I took both seroquel and resperidone together which seem to work but when worked better then when I took together. I suffer from insomnia so I wake up a bunch of times through the night. So when I stop taking resperidone and got up in the middle of the night my balance was extremely bad like if I drunk. So I tried taking resperidone agai...
