started on seroquel for alcohol addiction

I was 1st prescribed seroquel when I entered treatment for alcohol addiction, anxiety, and depression. I am proud to say I am now 5-1/5 years sober and wondering if or why I still need to be on this medicine. I take 100mg @ night along w/ 50mg of Zoloft. My biggest concern is if I will ever get to sleep w/o aid ## If you've been taking them for years, actually even if you've just been taking one of them for years, then the best way to stop taking them would be to do a slow taper. Otherwise, they tend to cause rebound effects, so you may experience symptoms such as severe depression, insomnia, irritability and etc. Learn more Seroquel details here. Learn more Zoloft details here. If you do it that way, then there will most likely be a brief period of insomnia and some other mild ...

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!!

Seroquel Questions and Slow taper?

Hello, I am a 48 year old woman and I have been on 100mg of seroquel at night for 8 years for depression and sleep. I need to slowly taper off this. It seems it is making me even more tired and I sleep and sleep for very long hours. I have a lot of issues with it. I have a few questions. I take the 100mg tablet at night. I also have some of the 25 mg and was going to use those to taper. But even though I know 4 of the 25 mg tablets are 100mg, It seems to work different when taken that way? Anyone else notice this? Should I just try to cut up the 100mg and taper that? I wanted to take 75mg and take the other 25 mg tablet and cut it up. I want to do a very slow taper. I would be happy to taper 25 mg over 2.5 to 4 months. I have tapered off other things in the past that I took for fibromya...

How high???

I've just started Seroquel 25mg,so far so good, but I'm sure that has 2 B the lowest dosage.I've heared others R on 200-300mg. a day. ## My doctor put me on 800mg and It's not good. ## It makes me like a zombie your on it you'll see. ## I started taking seroquel about 2 weeks ago and i am taking 300 mg a day, it makes me real hungry and very tired but makes me feel calm ## Yes, it can be dosed in amounts up to 400mgs a dose, and up to 800mgs per day. The dosage varies according to someone's response to it, and the severity of the condition being treated. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

seroquel experience insomnia, and possible cure

I like to make a public account of my expereience with seroquel or / quetiapine. To be as frank as possible this drug should only be used as your last resort as the negatives far out weigh the positives in my opinion. I took this drug to treat my mild to moderate tactile hallucinations which developed from extreme stress earlier in 2013. I took 25mg of seroquel (50mg cut in half) for about 2 weeks and then I took a full tablet of 50 mg of seroquel for another 2 weeks and then because of the side effects of mild kindey/liver pain plus mild heart pain i began to taper off the drug for another 2 weeks taking about 15mg of seroquel. I'm a 34 year old male pretty athletic and i was really suprised that i was getting all this liver, heart discomfort while on the drug. Also i noticed my jo...

Seroquel for insomnia

I have been taking Seroquel for a year now for insomnia. Anybody else take Seroquel for this? I have looked around and it doesn't even seem that Seroquel is normally given to someone for this. ## I also have been taking seroquel for insomnia for about a year and a half now. I must say, my Dr tried every sleeping pill out there on me. This is the only thing that has worked for me, I've never had a sleepless night since. I was also being treated for panic attacks and depression at the time. But all my life I had trouble sleeping, I'm talking up till 5 or 6 am with a million things racing through my mind (stupid stuff) but not any more. My doc told me that in low doses, it does work on some people for insomnia. ## Good information ## My son has OCD and was put on Seroquel for s...

I just would like to know if this medication is for schitz patients then why is it perscribed for so meany other things? What exactly is it for? I know someone who is on it but thier diagnosis is nothing close to schitz. I am concerned about this and would really like some feed back. P.S. this person is only 15 and has other diabilities. ## Sometimes they give Seroquel for ADHD, insomnia, etc. My doctor wanted to give it to my son, but I found out that Seroquel is a major factor in Diabetes and I have Diabetes in my family, so I had him not even start it. ## Seroquel contains the active ingredient Quetiapine, it is often used to treat various mental health issues, such as Schizophrenia, Depression, and Bipolar Disorder. Most medications can be used treat multiple conditions. The FDA lis...

Best manufacturer of generic Seroquel?

I would like to know which manufacturer of Seroquel works the best? I have Accord and it doesn't work well. Thank you. ## I asked this question a few months ago, thought I would try again. Thank you. ## I was switched to the Accord health version and it's nothing like the one from Astra zenica. I'm wide awake and moody. I need to go back to the Astra zenica one- much better. ## It can really vary from person to person, so there's no way to say which one might be the best for any given person that tries it. Seroquel is used to treat various mental health disorders, as well as some severe cases of insomnia. It may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and somnolence. Have you found one that works better for you, yet?

Can I use expired seroquel

My serouqel is expired, how long after expiration can I use it ## Hello, Barb! How are you? This medication doesn't get dangerous, once expired, but it will start to lose effectiveness. How far expired is it? When was it filled? ## Hi, iam taking seroquel 2014 old. is that really bad and how? ## I checked this out too. What I see is Seroquel has a shelf life of 3 years. I recently ran out and am having a tough time getting refills. This is the second time I've run into this problem over the last few months. I found an older bottle of Seroquel from 2014 in my medicine cabinet. And I'm using that with no problem. ## Seroquel due to the way it is compounded is totally ineffective after three years or when it's expiry date claims it expires it is totally ineffective ## hello...

Does Seroquel Come in Liquid Form

My dad has dementia/Alzheimer's and it's very problematic to get him to take his meds. Does Seroquel and Ativan come in liquid form? ## The Ativan does, but not the Seroquel. What I'd suggest doing is speaking to his doctor about it, to discuss the problem and see what alternative medications can be prescribed that are in liquid form, or perhaps injectable. There are quite a few options available, so they shouldn't have a problem helping you and, if you have to learn to give him a shot, it is pretty simple and the doctor or a nurse can teach you to do so in just a few minutes. Is there anything else I can help with?

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).

How Long Does Seroquel Stay In Your System

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.

mixed pain meds with psych

Hi. I’m on seroquel, gabapentin, methylphenidate, klonopin, and lithium. I had surgery. Had filled out all the meds I take. After surgery I was on norco for 4 or 5 days. Still hurting and severely inflamed. I called the surgeons office. He gave me Tramadol 50 mg every 4 hours and ibuprofen. After about 4 days I started having tremors. Face and neck twisting stretching kind of thing. My left thigh is still numb and leg was very heavy. Also constant clearing my throat and non stop humming or singing or just making grunting noises. I called the pharmacy the next day as I was so wired and shaking I could barely stand up. Obviously they said stop immediately. I also quit the lithium. Now the shaking has gone away some But still clearing throat constantly and humming. It’s driving...

Prestiq withdrawl side effects

I was taking 100 MG of Prestiq, 300 MG of Seroquel, and 150 MG of Wellbutrin. I slowly whinned myself off of everything, but the Prestiq. I lowered my dose from 100 to 50 mg's, and stayed on that for 2 weeks. I quit taking the 50 mg's of Prestiq on Sunday. I am having withdrawl side effects. The side effects include extreme nausea, headache, throbbing in my head and ears, dizziness, vomiting, irratability, and I snap at the least littlest thing. I feel like I have no control over my emotions. Has anyone went through this before? How long will the side effects last? ## I didn't do it with Pristiq, but yes, I did stop taking 100mgs of Zoloft, cold turkey. Pristiq is an SSNRI antidepressant, since this affects the chemical balance in your brain, it can be as hard to get off of ...

White round pill with 50 on one side

I found this in with my step daughter's stuff. Any ideas on what this is? It's a white round pill. 50 on one side, and some design on the back.... but I only have half a pill. Thanks in advance! I JUST TRIED TO ATTACH A PICTURE, BUT DONT SEE ANY AREA WHERE I CAN ATTACH A PICTURE!? ## This pill may be a Seroquel (Quitiapine) 50 mg dose, as it has many variations that being one. However remembet frequently other parts of the pill that make ID easier are erased to make people purchase fake or fraudulent medications IF that is the case. This is a mystery one, but Quitiapine is an A-typical Antipsychotic, with significant sedative effects, used to treat many psychiatric disorders and can be abused and sold as other medications. Sorry it’s a mystery pill it seems, I’m gues...

can i take seroquel with methadone

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. Combining a tranquilizer strong enough to kill a lion, with methadone?

Oval shaped orange pill with AB1

I need to know if this is a Seroquel or not? It's oblong, kind of orange and brown with AB1 on it. ## Yes, it is a generic 50mg Quetiapine tablet manufactured by Accord Healthcare. NDC code: 16729-0132 The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood changes, and weight changes. It can be normal to receive different tablets from your pharmacy, from time to time, depending on who was offering the cheapest price, at the time they had to restock their supply.

Seroquel and RLS

I had been on a lot of opioid medication for several years and Seroquel at night for sleep. Two years ago I got off the pain meds but continued the Seroquel. Over the course of a couple of of months I developed worsening involuntary twitching and jerking of my legs at night. One afternoon I sat down to pay some bills and couldn’t even see right or sit still. I went to ER and they gave me some Ativan which put me back to normal for a few hours. The same symptoms continued. I looked back thru my daily journal and figured out the twitching and jerking started about 30 min after I took the Seroquel at night. I stopped the Seroquel for 6 nights and the movements went away. I took it on the 7th nite and it all came back with a vengeance. I stopped the Seroquel and have not had the probl...
