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. It was first approved by the FDA in 1997. There are now several generic versi...

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...

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!!

126 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...

Arrow symbol on one side QT on the other

I found a small baggie of pills. They are smaller than a graval and coated orange over a white inside. They have an arrow symbol on one side and QT on the other. ## sounds like you got yourself a bag of generic 25 mg seroquel , people use them to put themselves to sleep after a hard night of partying , and if your stay awake through the sleepy stage if the pill, you will trip the f*** out and its pretty fun ## found an small round orange pill with qt on one side and looks like an arrow on the other but dosent say the mg was wondering what they are? ## @Jessica, From what I could gather, there is a round peach/orangish colored tablet with QT on one side and > on reverse side, that contains 25mgs of Quetiapine (Seroquel). It is manufactured by Cobalt Canada. Quetiapine is an atypical ...

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...

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...

Can anyone help me? I am tortured by my lack of sleep, i would be very greatful if there is anyone in san diego that could provide me with some seroquel. 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...
