Seroquel Overview

Quetiapine, sold under the trade name Seroquel among others, is an atypical antipsychotic used for the treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depressive disorder.[6][7] Despite being widely used as a sleep aid due its sedating effect, the benefits of such use do not appear to generally outweigh the side effects.[8] It is taken by mouth.[6] Common side effects include sleepiness, constipation, weight gain, and dry...

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 D.R tried every sleeping pill out there on me.This is the only thing that has worked for me,i've never had a sleepless nite since. I was also being treated for panic attacks and depression at the time.But all my life I had trouble sleeping,im talking up till 5 or 6 a.m with a million things raceing through my mind(stupid stuff)but not any more.

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?

Call the drug company AstraZeneca 1-800-237-8898 ## Seroquel contains the active ingredient Quetiapine, on top of treating the conditions that Kim has already mentioned, these medications are sometimes used to help sleep issues in people who did not have success with other treatment options. It may also be used if they have problems sleeping due to one of the conditions mentioned. Is there anything else I can help with?

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? Learn more Ativan details here. ## Guys stay away from drugs, one time use can effect your life it is not good stay away from any drugs ## Seroquel does come...

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!!

I ran in the wall 4 times in a row. he sent me to bed and that the the last time I ever took them damn things. ## i started taking seroquil a few yrs ago for a sleep disorder-i couldnt shut my brain off at night. the dr started me on 100 mg and they did kick me, so i cut them in half, take 1 every ...

Seroquel and weight gain

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).

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 ...

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? A medication that takes 6 hours to kick it, so you cant gauge how much to dose ...
