So many patients taking Seroquel for insomnia - try Melatonin.
1 Reply RSS
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 i take seroquel with methadone
26 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...

Weight gain on Seroquel or Trintellix
1 Reply RSS
Which is more apt to cause weight gain, Seroquel (400mg) or Trintellix (10mg)? ## Hi Heather, Because everyone's body reacts and responds differently to each and every medication, there is no way to know ahead of time how your body will respond. The only way to find out is to take each medication for a specific period of time through trial and error. However - does list "weight gain" specifically as a side effect of Seroquel; whilst they list nothing of that sort under Trintellix (vortioxetine). So if I had to guess, Seroquel may be more likely to cause weight gain based off this information alone. I hope this helps!

Best generic Seroquel
2 Replies RSS
I would like to know which generic brand of Seroquel is most effective and also the brands that are least effective? I recently tried Accord and that wasn't effective. Thank you to anyone who will help me with this. ## My son was also just changed to accord and it isn't working the same. It's so frustrating because I just picked up a 100 days supply. ?? He was on 50 mg before but an orange pill then he tried 300mg but it was too strong so I've been cutting them. When we went to our follow up appointment I was able to get it changed to 3, 50mg tablets so I didn't have to cut them in half, but they're not doing anything. ## Sorry that the Accord isn't working for your son. Let's hope someone will suggest an effective generic for Seroquel.

Cymbalta reviews good or bad?
3 Replies RSS
Anyone out know about cymbalta? I've just been put on it a week ago. I was suicidal, not now. They just took me off prozac and put me on cymbalta. I'm praying it works for me... ## I just stopped taking cymbalta and it made me feel like i was going crazy. After i stopped taking it i got really bad migraines from it. Good luck. ## This post is from a long time ago so I am not sure if you will receive the message or not. I am getting ready to stop Cymbalta after a bit over 4 yrs on it. It's so horrid. I know it will be awful coming off, but you have to taper off. It may take a year or more. Something they never told doctors or patients in the past. They lied. A legal suit was settled very quietly earlier this year for it too. Did you know that? That's how nasty these crimi...

Does seroquel show up in a standard urine test? I hear yes and no. Someone please help with a for sure answer - thanx! ## 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.

sleep with Seroquel
1 Reply RSS
Here's my experience. (I'm a 57 yo man) I was on 30mg of Trazodone. At first it worked. But after that year, the drug Seroquel was mentioned for the 100th time bcuz I didn't want to take such a strong med, but the type. After a little research Seroquel IS given at 25mg and 50mg 20 min before sleep. In all transparency, I suffer from Nocturia, a condition that make you wake 3-7 times to pee. My sleep was hardly worth the word.) From the first night I took Seroquel at 50mg and not only did I get up once but went right back to sleep It has, been some odd reason, a cure for the Nocturia ( I don't wake even once) and sleep like a baby for 7-11 hours every night, for the first time in over 3 years and I couldn't be happier getting that kind of sleep. It's a god send fo...

How Long Does Heroin Stay In Your Urine if on a cotton use
8 Replies RSS
I used today n used just a cotton n have been clean for 3 months now. How long will that stay in my system? I have a fast metabolism and only weigh 126 n 54. ## Since I'm not familiar with "cotton use", the best information I can share with you at this time are Heroin's estimated drug detection times: Heroin can be detected in your system for up to 2-4 days for a urinary analysis, up to 6 hours for a blood test, 1-4 days for a saliva test, and as long as 90 days for a hair strand test. If you have a fast metabolism and aren't a frequent user, then I'd expect detection times to be on the lower end of those set time frames, but everyone's results may be different in terms of how long it remains in your system so it may not be best to just base it on your urine,...

Seroquel/Quetiapine Brand
Post a Reply
Hey. I take quetiapine (seroquel) for anxiety at 50 mg. I'm just wondering because I recently went to a different pharmacy to fill my prescription if there is a difference between brands. I have always received co-quetiapine, but this pharmacy gave me apo-quetiapine. Does the different brand matter? Will it have any effect?

I was given 50 mg trintellix and seroquel 10 mg to take combined. They don't know if I'm manic depressive or just have major depressive disorder. Wondering what it might be supposed to do for me exactly. I recently lost my insurance and now I just have my prescription. ## These medications can be used to treat depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and some cases of bipolar disorder. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings, and weight changes. How are you doing on them? ## The highest recommended dose for Trintellix by the manufacturer is 20 mgs. daily. Did a doctor actually prescribe you such a high dose of Trintellix? ## Yes my insurance will only pay for 20mgs of trintellix, so far the FDA has only approved...

How Long Does Seroquel Stay In Your System
7 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 ...

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.

how long does seroquel stay in your system
1 Reply RSS
How long will a 50mg seroquel stay in your system if you have never taken one before? And will it show up on a urine drug screen? ## This medication is not something that is usually included on standard drug tests, since it is not a controlled substance, according to NIH studies. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, mood changes, and weight changes. Has it been prescribed for you? If so, there is nothing to worry about, just make sure they know that you've been taking it, at the time you are tested.
