Concerns about prescription of Seroquel
1 Reply RSS
A close friend of mine has been taking Seroquel for about a year now and I think her current dosage is around 400-600mg/day. This drug was prescribed to her to treat anxiety and for sleep issues. I have spent time with her after she has taken this medication and its horrible. She acts like she is drunk. She has almost no short-term memory and forgets things she talked about just moments before. She slurs her words and becomes rather uncoordinated. And she has no recollection of what she said or did the following day. She has developed such a dependency that she is now taking the Seroquel late in the afternoon, is in bed by 7pm and will sleep for 10+ hours. She has tried drugs like Cymbalta and Lyrica with no effect. From what I have researched, prescribing Seroquel for anxiety is rather...

asap seroquel question
3 Replies RSS
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 ## I failed my drug test showed positive for amphetamines 5 days after I started taking 300mg per day of SEROQUEL

Round Yellow Pill N on one side 100 on the other
3 Replies RSS
Im from canada and was given this pale yellow pill imprinted with a N and 100. was told it was a kind of narcotic. ## Hello, Tstouty! How are you? Are the N and 100 on the same side or opposite sides? Are there any score lines on the tablet? ## So, I just found the same mystery pill not too long ago. The N and the 100 are on opposite sides of the flat, light yellow, circular, coated pressed pill. The edges are ever so slightly beveled on both sides- barely even so. There are no other imprints on the pill. ## I have this pill too is it seroquel? N or z on one side, 100 on the other, round peachy colored. Thanks all!

I take 400 mg.of Seroquel daily. I'm required to take 3 drug tests weekly and thay continue to test positive for benzo's dispite the fact that I take NOTHING but Seroquel.

Good luck man! ## If you are being honest with them and yourself, I agree you NEED to get verification from your prescriber (DOC) to verify .

Seroquel/Pax

Can Seroquel 50mg be taken together with pax 10 mg ## Yes, unfortunately these class of medications (anti-psychotics) do carry the side effect of weight gain. These meds actually slow down your metabolism causing weight gain. If you are using it for sleep which is what a lot of us are prescribing it for, so as to not get you hooked on sleeping pills. These meds side effect of sleepiness is why we use this even if you're not psychotic. Try breaking one in half with a knife and try using just half. Whatever you do if you are taking them every night you DO NOT stop taking this medication before speaking with your doctor first. Abrubt stopping of these meds could cause seizures and other problems you will have to be titraited from the drug if you so choose. It is a good drug for occasio...

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...

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. ## A month is long enough for it the serotonin to possibly be building up in her brain and...

False Positive for Benzo with Seroquel
21 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...

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...

Medical aid wants to change chronic meds
Post a Reply
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
3 Replies RSS
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
1 Reply RSS
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
2 Replies RSS
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 ...
