Seroquel Overview

Quetiapine, marketed as Seroquel, is an atypical antipsychotic approved for the treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and along with an antidepressant to treat major depressive disorder. It is also sometimes used as a sleep aid because of its sedating effect but this use is not recommended.[6] Annual sales are approximately $1.3 billion worldwide.[7] Quetiapine was developed by AstraZeneca from 1992 to 1996.

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...

can you die on seroquel if you take too much and how much is too much? ## im not sure ## My little brother was prescribed seroquel xr 50 and over dosed on a little over 20 tablets. He was rushed to the hospital and had his stomach pumped and slept for hours on end after. Im sure if you were to down a bottle you aren't going to wake up. ## Definitely. Had 200mgs and slept for 24 hours. Be very careful with this drug since it's easy for it to stop your breathing ## Should Seroquel be taken with other medications at the same time. ## i just started the drug i felt like it was helping but i guess my body is use to it ## This is the most dangerous drug I've ever taken. It also is a major cause of diabetes and high blood pressure. ## If I take 130 X 25mg, will it kill me? plz don...

How are you doing? Has there been any change? Those symptoms can be withdrawal effects of this medication, if you stop taking it abruptly, you may also experience nausea, fever, chills, diarrhea and rebound anxiety, as listed by the FDA. However, given the symptoms you've described, it would be best to have yourself checked out by a cardiologist to be sure that there is nothing else going on. Is there anything else I can help with? ## hello, thank you so much for replying, im going to see my doctor again on thursday, the chest pa...

can i take seroquel with methadone
4 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...

Fibromyalgia PTSD Insomnia Migraines Chronic Pain Medication
1 Reply RSS
I'm seeing my pain doctor and psychiatrist this week to get on a proper pain regimen for debilitating fibromyalgia, severe insomnia with central sleep apnea, PTSD/anxiety from significant abuse I'm working through, chronic daily headaches (advanced migraines), and chronic pain from multiple surgeries (pelvic, back, neck...) Because my doctors don't collaborate I need to suggest options to them. I am sensitive to many medications and have tried a lot over the years. I want my life back. I'm smart and resourceful and at my wits end. I'm on low dose Seroquel for sleep - too much daytime sedation, as Ambien and Trazodone don't work. I'm also on Tramadol, Ativan and Skelaxin during the day. I can't drive, work or function well on this plan. Amitriptyline cause...

hi, I have been taking quetapel for about 2 months, they really do seem to help with my anxiety and help me get to sleep, but I have noticed I get dizzy even when sitting down, and I hear a strange noise in my ears?? is this normal? ## Hello, Chelsea!
