Seroquel Overview

Quetiapine, marketed as Seroquel among others, is an atypical antipsychotic used for the treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depressive disorder.[6][7] It is also sometimes used as a sleep aid due to its sedating effect, but this use is not recommended.[8] It is taken by mouth.[6] Common side effects include sleepiness, constipation, weight gain, and dry mouth.[6] Other side effects include low blood pressure with standing, seizures, prolonged erection, high blood sugar, a...

can i take seroquel with methadone
24 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...

cymbalta
2 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...

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...

sleep with Seroquel
Post a Reply
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 for m

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?

trintellix seroquel
3 Replies RSS
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...

pale yellow oblong pill with l on one side and r the other
6 Replies RSS
I'm trying to find out what this pill is . Does anyone know its rather large and it is pale yellow or off white with a capital L on one side and capital R On the other . Please help ## I haven't been able to find a listing that identifies this tablet, so far. That leads me to suspect that it's most likely something that's available over the counter. Where did you find it? Some products are regional, so that may help to narrow it down. Does anyone else' recognize this tablet? I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. ## Someone have it to my husband because he had a horrible migraine and so he took it and it completely knocked him out .... If they give that to people over the counter there is something wrong with that... He was even slurrin...

1 Reply RSS
I've been on Seroquel 30pmg at night for about a year now. My dr has prescribed Neurontin 300 ( for pain) 3 times a day one at night for 7 days then increase to 2 a day and so on. Ive had the neurontin for a while now but havent taken it I started back two days ago My job is very stressful I have to be at the top of my game. I have found myself being tired and a little loopy, this is why Ive started in the past and then stopped twice. If I continue the neurontin until it gets in my system will that change?? It works for the pain but I dont like the loopy feeling.. ## Side effects are usually transient and tend to go away, once your body gets used to a medication, but that may take about 4 to 6 weeks of being on one steady dosage. The FDA lists other Neurontin side effects as possibl...
