Seroquel is working for me but I know I should get off it. Advice please!
20 Replies RSS
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! I want to get off it because the side effects I have read scare me - diabetes, insomnia etc + the groggy mornings are hard but do-able. 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 ...

Does Seroquel Show Up On A Drug Test
4 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? ## I take 200mg of seraquel a day. Iv...

can i take seroquel with methadone
12 Replies RSS
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...

blue oblong pill with 002 on one side, LU on the other side

I was given these pills by the pharmacy in a refill instead of the Seroquel I should have gotten. I want to know what these are before I call the pharmacy about this. ## These tablets are manufactured by Lupin Pharmaceuticals and they list them as containing 50mgs of Sertraline, which is a generic for Zoloft. It is an SSRI antidepressant that is also used to treat anxiety. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight gain. Definitely not Seroquel. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I'm not understanding. You were given these pills by your pharmacy but they're not Seroquel? What does the bottle say on it? Perhaps it has the generic name "quetiapine."

seroquel false positive
1 Reply RSS
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.

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.

Chest Pain Wakes Me Up at Night
1 Reply RSS
Hi! I've been taking Seroquel 200mg for 3 weeks and it's been alright, but something is happening at night that's become a concern. I wake up feeling like my chest is tightening, and I can't get comfortable. It's hard to explain. I just feel a tightness throughout my body, and my body keeps tossing and turning due to discomfort. Anyone else have a similar reaction? Is this normal? ## The FDA does report that this medication has been known to cause chest pain as a side effect in some people that take it, along with muscle aches, inability to sit or lie still, restlessness, and weight changes. Are you on any other medications? Anytime it concerns chest pain, it is always best to have it checked out by your doctor to be safe.

Potential seroquel weight loss method!
Post a Reply
The good news for me is that the treatment I have taken, of which quetiapine (seroquel) was a part, has cured any mental illness I had. And now what it has given me in return is a massive physical problem – weight gain. I read that many people suffer from this same problem. I would not say it has ruined my life but certainly my love and social life are on hold. Over the course of six months on quetiapine I gained 35 kilos / 77 lbs. I was then given another medication. My best efforts to remove the weight through diet and exercise made no difference. Three years passed. In a bizarre move after exhausting everything I could think of, I conducted what I have termed ‘a trial’. I took quetiapine for a handful of days and ate the bare amount needed to keep me functioning, wh...

Seroquel (antihistamine effect ex cetera?)
Post a Reply
Seroquel as monotherapy (antihistamine effect ex cetera) Posted a day ago I am 39 years old male. I take every evening one pill of Seroquel XR 300 mg. That is now the dose after calibrating my medicine for years. I got rid of Escitolapram. And the dose of Seroquel XR has come down from 600 mg. First and most interesting question is the following: - I used to get very strong tiredness during some evenings after taking my seroquel 300 mg. Sometimes I thought what I have done wrong. Is it my eating habits. If I eat carbon hydrate dinner and take the pill at the same time almost, will the tiredness come because of that? Still I dont know what is the problem exactly. However, I think one possible explanation could be my allergy medicine. I take Telfast 120 mg (fexofenadine) at the same time whe

So many patients taking Seroquel for insomnia - try Melatonin.
Post a Reply
Hi all, just noticed how many forum posts there are, from 'insomniacs' who have been prescribed antipsychotics like seroquel for sleep issues. Personally, I take a fair amount of medications for my bag of issues also, but just wanted to write something in the hopes it helps someone else.. Melatonin is the thing that makes the tired feeling, the yawn, the nap on the couch, the wake up tired and want to sleep more stuff sort of.. You can run out, deplete, have none, start with none, have a very limited internal supply that dwindles every day... Having always been a 'bad sleeper', I just assumed I didn't need much sleep like everyone ewe I knew..I worked hard and long hours and tired was never an issue.. I'd get exhausted physically and emotionally, mentally feel li...
