Seroquel/Quetiapine Brand
Post a Reply
Hey. I take quetiapine (seroquel) for anxiety at 50 mg. I'm just wondering because I recently went to a different pharmacy to fill my prescription if there is a difference between brands. I have always received co-quetiapine, but this pharmacy gave me apo-quetiapine. Does the different brand matter? Will it have any effect?

trintellix seroquel
3 Replies RSS
I was given 50 mg trintellix and seroquel 10 mg to take combined. They don't know if I'm manic depressive or just have major depressive disorder. Wondering what it might be supposed to do for me exactly. I recently lost my insurance and now I just have my prescription. ## These medications can be used to treat depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and some cases of bipolar disorder. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings, and weight changes. How are you doing on them? ## The highest recommended dose for Trintellix by the manufacturer is 20 mgs. daily. Did a doctor actually prescribe you such a high dose of Trintellix? ## Yes my insurance will only pay for 20mgs of trintellix, so far the FDA has only approved...

I'm trying to find out what this pill is . Does anyone know its rather large and it is pale yellow or off white with a capital L on one side and capital R On the other . Please help ## I haven't been able to find a listing that identifies this tablet, so far. That leads me to suspect that it's most likely something that's available over the counter.

If they give that to people over the counter there is something wrong with that... He was even slurrin...

How Long Does Seroquel Stay In Your System
7 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 false positive

I'm on Seroquel XR & it ones up positive for THC when I test at probation. They have a complete list of my meds. Here in our county, they send it off to a lab that confirms it being either a " true or false positive ". It comes back from the lab as a false positive of course, since I do not use. Hang in there Seroquel takers! It's a CRAZY DRUG! ## Seroquel has shown up on my drug screens a few times now as TCA. This was on a larger panel cup test. A lot of meds can be abused and more places are getting better tests. ## I have to take a urine test every Friday and Monday for probation... I test negative one day and the very next time I show positive.... I have not smoked in over a month... I'm am on seroquel 100 mg 2x a day. Can this be the reason for a positive d...

how long does seroquel stay in your system

How long will a 50mg seroquel stay in your system if you have never taken one before? And will it show up on a urine drug screen? ## This medication is not something that is usually included on standard drug tests, since it is not a controlled substance, according to NIH studies. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, mood changes, and weight changes. Has it been prescribed for you? If so, there is nothing to worry about, just make sure they know that you've been taking it, at the time you are tested.

I've been on Seroquel 30pmg at night for about a year now. My dr has prescribed Neurontin 300 ( for pain) 3 times a day one at night for 7 days then increase to 2 a day and so on. Ive had the neurontin for a while now but havent taken it I started back two days ago My job is very stressful I have to be at the top of my game. I have found myself being tired and a little loopy, this is why Ive started in the past and then stopped twice. If I continue the neurontin until it gets in my system will that change?? It works for the pain but I dont like the loopy feeling.. ## Side effects are usually transient and tend to go away, once your body gets used to a medication, but that may take about 4 to 6 weeks of being on one steady dosage. The FDA lists other Neurontin side effects as possibl...

do seroquel clonazepam and phenobarbital come in liquid form
1 Reply RSS
I have had serious difficulty swallowing my meds for 2 years+. I have had to crush and put in water, chew or not take at all. In doing so, My throat is constantly sore and inflamed.My meds get stuck every time when I don't, and have even gotten into my nasal cavities somehow during trying to swallow. I am seriously at my wits end, please help! ## Most medications are available in liquid form, since many people have trouble swallowing tablets. Not all, but the FDA does have some they've approved, so it is always worth asking your doctor for alternative dosage forms. As to your throat being sore and inflamed, if you have dissolved the tablets, you may need to take something to prevent the acidity that they can cause, such as an antacid. So, that's another option you can ask yo...

Does Seroquel Show Up On A Drug Test NO
5 Replies 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? ## Yes Seroquel or as stated on my bottle Quetiapine will show as a false positive for tricyclic antidepresents. I take 50 mg twice a day, a low dose, today I took my normal morning meds and popped positive for tricyclic antidepresents this afternoon. This is not something that is normally tested for on a drug screening such as work or your P.O. My test was urine tested by a lab and was run twice with the same result, my test was more in dep...

People that take seroquel...
Post a Reply
I am at my pain dr writing this. I take 600 milligrams of seroquel at night to sleep. I was just drug tested, & showed up positive for an antidepressant (aka TCA). I had to argue w/ the test lady because I googled this info, & had the answer about why before she was even done dialing the phone # to the local pharmacy. I have been going to this Dr for several yrs, & have been on seroquel for many more, & this was the first time they have ever said anything about it to me. But she said that it was because they didn't have the drug testing kits they are now having to use. Also she said as people grow more sophisticated in beating the tests they have to be even more sophisticated to keep up with & catch them. My best advice to anyone would be to take only what you...

Does Seroquel Come in Liquid Form
6 Replies RSS
My dad has dementia/Alzheimer's and it's very problematic to get him to take his meds. Does Seroquel and Ativan come in liquid form? ## The Ativan does, but not the Seroquel. What I'd suggest doing is speaking to his doctor about it, to discuss the problem and see what alternative medications can be prescribed that are in liquid form, or perhaps injectable. There are quite a few options available, so they shouldn't have a problem helping you and, if you have to learn to give him a shot, it is pretty simple and the doctor or a nurse can teach you to do so in just a few minutes. Is there anything else I can help with? Learn more Ativan details here. ## Guys stay away from drugs, one time use can effect your life it is not good stay away from any drugs ## Seroquel does come...

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...
