Seroquel and weight gain
127 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...

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...

How Long Does Seroquel Stay In Your System
2 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 ...

Can anyone tell me good things about this medication?? ## I've been taking Seroquel for almost a year, and it has changed my life for the better!!

can i take seroquel viibryd and tylenol together
1 Reply RSS
My fiance just starting taking 25mg of seroquel but she also takes viibryd and tylenol on a regular basis. Since the start of taking the seroquel she has gotten a high fever and her doctor said something about serotonin syndrome. Can anyone help to explain this to me or the risk factors very worried about her. ## Hello, Matt! How are you? Serotonin syndrome occurs when someone is taking too many medications or supplements that increase the levels of serotonin in the brain, it doesn't happen to everyone, but when it does, it can be fatal if not treated. However, I've not found anything in the interactions databases that state it has been known to happen with Seroquel and Viibryd, but I am not a doctor, so it would be best to trust them on it. Has she had any other symptoms? How h...

Does seroquel show up in a standard urine test i hear yes and no someone please help with for sure answer thnxs ## Seroquel contains the active ingredient Quetiapine, it is an atypical antipsychotic and as such, no, it is not a substance that is tested for and detected on drug tests.

Does Seroquel Show Up On A Drug Test
2 Replies RSS
i take 300 mgof seriquel and also clanopen so should i worry about parole im percribed the clanopen ## It is not necessary to worry about any medication that you were prescribed as long as you have a copy of your prescription in hand or the ability to contact your doctor regarding the prescription. However, regarding Seroquel: It actually can show a false positive for TCA (Tricyclic Antidepressents), if you are tested for that. It is not a TCA but based on my research it often tests positive for it. It is not an illegal drug, but if you are getting screened for all drugs, yes it can show up on a drug test. I hope this information helps! ## I go to flacra and I take vicodine, lyrica , celexa and clonipin but the urine tests are coming up as dilation?

is 400 mg of seroquel too strong
3 Replies RSS
Is a dosage of 400 mg of seroquel too strong? Only taking 1 makes a family member sleep in a near coma-state? Also seeing some labored breathing. Should we go to a hospital for that? ## Hello, Jennie! How are you? It could be too strong of a dose for them. The sleeping isn't a major concern, because that usually tends to improve, once their body gets used to the medication, but that may take 4 to 5 weeks. However, the labored breathing is something that should be addressed by their doctor. The FDA lists the other typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight gain. Are they on any other medications? ## Yes, she was prescribed 800 mg of Seroquel but only takes one per day because sleeping so much. She is also prescribed...

seroquel quetiapine
2 Replies RSS
hi, I've been taking quetiapine now for a number of years. I started out taking the extended release version of the drug for a couple of years, then was switched to the standard version around three years ago, as I suffer from insomnia, and cannot get to sleep without some kind of assistance, even where I haven't slept for days. I'm on 800mg per day, with 300 being taken during the day, and the remaining 500 being taken in the evening time. I suffer with paranoid type schizophrenia, and I do find that taking seroquel seems to keep the psychotic symptoms reduced to a manageable level. However, I've been suffering with side effects that include seizing up, where my whole body seems to contract, which can be extremely painful, I find breathing becomes a problem, and I can b...

I am afraid to go to the doctors and be diagnosed with bi polar,out of fear that it could affect my profession. Hopefully well talk soon.Rich. Editor's note: Contact information has been removed. Sorry, but we do not allow or promote any illegal methods of sales. ## What else have you used to try to remedy your insomnia problem? Seroquel, which is most commonly used to treat Schizophrenia is not the first choice to treat insomnia, nor is it the only option. Additionally, even if you see a doctor and are diagnosed as bipolar, or as having some other condition, it is none of your employers business, unless it affects your work in som...

That is a typical withdrawal effect, as listed by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, foggy headed feeling, diarrhea and rebound depression. It may take a month for the symptoms to entirely go away, though they should gradually improve and not be as severe. Is there anything else I can help with?

seroquel lorazpan wellbutrin andmirtazapine
1 Reply RSS
I'm on all these is it safe to take them 150 milligrams of wellbutrin, 500 of seroquel, 2 to 5 milgrams of lorazpan, and 7.5 nil grams of mirtazapine ## Have they all been prescribed for you? Most of these tend to increase sedation, so you shouldn't combine them, without your doctor's approval. The Wellbutrin can also increase the effect of the Mirtazapine, so your doctor should be monitoring you regularly, while taking them both. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, sedation, dry mouth and weight changes. The Lorazepam also carries the risk of being habit forming.
