is 400 mg of seroquel too strong
2 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 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.

possibly antidepressant ## My fiance is currently taking Feroquel and I am curious about the medication. Is it like Xyprexa and does it have to build in your system before it fully takes into effect? Also, is it possible to get anything prescribed for as a mood stabilizer? Please I need facts. ## I believe the medication you are referring to is Seroquel. Most medications will take a few weeks to reach their full effect in your body. As to a mood stabilizer, there are some medications for that, but he would need to consult with his doctor about them and see if they are appropriate. ## I took one of these pills today and I got super sleeping within an hour. Maybe I have been running on fumes the last couple of days. But it diffidently had an affect.

Seroquel - how long typically to see benefits?
2 Replies RSS
My father has been on Seroquel for about 3 weeks for bi-polar disorder. He also has occasional bouts with paranoia. He will occasionally get very angry/agitated and lash out at family members. He still occasionally shows signs of paranoia. In other words, it at first appeared these symptoms were improving, but are still recurring. For those that have taken this drug for something similar, is this to be expected? Thanks for any guidance. ## Hello, Will! How are you and your father? It usually takes about 4 to 6 weeks for such a medication to reach its full level of efficacy. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, somnolence, weight gain and headache. It's fairly typical for this to happen, while someone's body is getting used to the medica...

losing weight after seroquel
1 Reply RSS
I quit seroquel 5 months ago for several reasons (was addicted to it and not seeing a doctor so I was getting it on the streets, it messed with my head and my heart rate, and of course the weight gain.) I was a good 125lbs ish when I started. 2 years later I'm 160lbs. Seroquel never really made me hungry or overeat, but I slept a good 14 hours a day and spent my time awake lying around because I was so tired. Having quit it though, along with being homeless, I walk quite a lot and barely get to eat. But after 5 months I can't even shed 5lbs. The next best thing I can do diet wise is literally starve myself I am already eating so little, and I already do not eat junk food, so I'm really confused and actually pretty depressed by my weight. I know seroquel is behind my dilemma,...

Can I take methocarbam if I take seroquel at night ## Hello, Daisy! How are you? You shouldn't take them both, unless your doctor has said it's okay, because they can both increase sedation. The FDA classifies Methocarbamol as a muscle relaxant and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and drowsiness. Seroquel's typical side effects may possibly include dry mouth, dizziness, headache, drowsiness and sedation. Have they both been prescribed for you?
