Seroquel and rls

Common Questions and Answers about Seroquel and rls

seroquel

I tried the seroquel for sleep while going thru withdrawals and it gave me the rls worse than I already had. Everyone here knows that is pretty bad anyways. did make me tired though. I would take at 10 fall asleep around 2 and wake at 4 the next day. now take ambien cr.
If it were me, i would take up to 30 mg of diazepam instead of the seroquel.....and read the post above concerning one individuals experience with seroquel......lots of natural things that do work also. Check out the amino acid protocol and the Thomas Recipe posted at bottom right of page.
Why is it that when I take a xanax or a seroquel that the muscles in my legs start going crazy. for example. this afternoon I was feeling blah and too a seroquel to just get some sleep and my legs started going crazy.?
of the GABA receptors in my brain and too much adrenaline----the xanax and seroquel bind to those receptors and help the brain shut down and go to sleep. Never had any problems with weight gain or making my hungry...but then again, I'm kind of like a person who can always be hungry, and have a snack...so not sure if that is a good measure. Still researching how to do it naturally without xanax----if anyone has had any luck, please let me know. Thanks!
So one of the reasons I wanted to stop taking Seroquel before and try something else, is that I sometimes have this feeling in the bottom of my feet, that make me constantly need to rub them on something or walk to get rid of the sensation. Oddly enough, if I think about it, it usually occurs, but sometimes it will wake me up in the middle of the night, and I have to walk around. I'm on a relatively low dose, 200mg, at bedtime, but it can be quite frustrating....
See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep and Klonopin which will be helpful for sleeplessness and anxiety. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter. The residual symptoms of insomnia and depression can last another few months.
Hi, What other symptoms are present? There is no specific test for RLS and it is important that the four basic criteria for diagnosing the disorder are met.
See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep. and Clonidine for the creepy-crawly feeling and control of blood pressure variations. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter.
Instead of Klonopin,why don't you try Hylands Restful Legs for the RLS? I think it works better...The Seroquel and Klonopin might be helping a little but I doubt it. They hit different receptors in the brain...But,hey,who really knows?? I'm glad you're comfortable!!
But then I started on some new meds, Seroquel and (can't remember), and that is when it started again. But I have been off of the one med for several months and the Seroquel for about a month and I still get this. When I was on these meds, whatever this is was really, really bad - not just in so far as how often, but how bad it was. Now I only get it every once in a while, but believe me, that is enough. So I am sitting here wishing that I could sleep. I took some Clonazepam.
on the RLS you said a advil and tylenol combination helps my husband has RLS really bad at times so how do you do the combination take 1 advil and 1 tylenol . any input would be great.
Boost is great. It's probably the Ativan and Seroquel that helped with the RLS. It could also just be you are getting better. YIPPPPEEEE Congrat's on day 5 !
i just copied this info from the doctor forum on addiction See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep. and Clonidine for the creepy-crawly feeling and control of blood pressure variations. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter.
I have been off them for 5-6 days now and all wd's are gone with the exception of sleep. I already have RLS and have had it for 20 years. But now without the vicodin it has gotten 100 times worse. I take Klonopin for the RLS. I have read some blogs on here and starting taking melatonin, some kind of root thing that smells like something I would not want to ingest. I have taken hot baths every night. But nothing works. I am going crazy.
Last night I took four muscle relaxers before I finally got some rest, I think I had rls for the first time, it was horrible. I went to the doctor today and he put me on seroquel. I hate to take it because I've had it before, made me sleep for like 16 hours, then left me with a hangover. He says that will go away. I worry that a medication like seroquel will make me a zombie, but I guess it's better than how I'm feeling now. I cant be in the same room with my mom because I want to hurt her.
Something weird, the only 2 or 3 major things are rls and lowerback pain and no energy! Hmmmmm. Gonna try to walk. Although I'm trying to sleep through it with OTC mess and Ativan / which has switched to Xanax. Prescribed. So I wake up feel crappy- take advil and melotoniam and sleep again. Day 3 and 4 I will stop and stat awake. Hope it helps. Thank you my friends.
i myself also suffer from depression i am on 20 mg of lexapro a day and take 800 mg of seroquel and i hate it to just be strong it will work you just gotta be patient and all the **** you are dealing with now will fade away little by little everyday. you are lucky that you only take one to on and a half i myself was useing 4 a day. you may want to contact your doctor first before getting off the wellbutrin. i hope i could help you with any of your problems.
I have tried CBT, seeing a psychiatrist and even she is puzzled as she had me on Seroquel, and a bunch of other meds to help me sleep and nothing took effect, even at high doses. The only thing that works is in the "benzo" class. So do you think I could have fatal insomnia? I do not have a family history of this rare disease, but the sudden insomnia is puzzling and like I said, its been one year now.... I am 33, female and have 3 children whom I love dearly.
It contains minerals and amino acids that will calm you AND help the RLS. Don't try to force sleep. Don't even go to bed. Relax on the sofa and get yourself really comfortable! Take a very hot bath,warm up your comfy clothes and a blanket in the clothes dryer. Get dressed,wrap up and relax. Even if you don't sleep you'll feel wonderful ( at least a little :) Good luck and don't give up!!
I took it for One Night ONLY and it made my w/ds so much worse and gave me the restless legs that night..I stopped it right away and never had the RLS again after. So please do not try to Self Medicate Yourself. Talk to the DR.. We sure can give you some hints on what we used in a more natural way that helped. Just asked and you will get LOTS of input. Make sure you are taking some Epsom salt baths for the aches & pains. The Magnesium in this helps draw out poisons too..
which forces me to try to fix myself and him for the benefit of our 2 btfl boys... they are 4 and 5 and full of life Does Ativan Zoloft Clonazepan or Seroquel and Zopicclone help??? PLEAE HELP ANY INPUT WOULD BEA LIFE SEND!!!!
I am now wondering, and it kind of makes sense to me, that maybe it comes along with hypomanic episodes. I'm wondering how common RLS is to those with bipolar, and if anyone has seen it or experienced it as tied to (hypo)manic episodes? Penny for your thoughts. Thank you.
because for me, taking one or more of these medications is what triggers the visions, and they are medications made to TREAT seratonin and dopamine mood-based disorders, I wonder what that means for people who are not taking any medications and have this same reaction? Would something like Seroquel make it go away, or make it worse? It's scary when it happens, even when we tell ourselves it's not real and the visuals keep happening. Just my 2 cents.
I have tried to quit these little buggers before and always relapsed due to rls and being a wimp but this time I took vitimans and potassium and magnisium and have not experinced at all except one day I did not take the P&M .it really helps give it a try .I am day 38 of no vics.
When i was going through it they gave me clonidine and seroquel. Clonidine is a BP med that helps with withdraws and seroquel is an anti-psychotic that helps tremendously with anxiety and sleep. You are already on day eight so you are so close to feeling better, stay strong. I hope this helps and if you need to talk or get some support we are here going through the same things too.
If not, start now as this will help things progress and may even help with the RLS. Your body needs the vitamins and nutrients to repair itself. If the body doesn't have enough of something for the repair it will just put it off until it does. Kind of like building a house. If you don't have enough nails for one section, you just move on to something else that doesn't require the nails. Glad to hear you're doing better. Love and Strength to you brother!!
She's an amazing woman! We are going to try and go for a walk when we get home tonight to try and help with the RLS and just get some exercise if I can manage. I am actually looking forward to it! She also offered to give me a leg massage tonight! I don't know what I did to deserve her but i am so thankful! (Sorry if this seems like bragging or whatever, I just feel truly blessed.) I feel slightly less clouded today.
The neurologist that I worked with for 1 year explained that I may have Restless Legs Syndrome from exposure to a dopamine antagonist. A neurologist at John's Hopkins told me I have RLS and an Akathesia. I have had 2 EMG's which were negative, and several MRIs of the spine and brain, also negative. Having read much about RLS I feel that my symptoms are more like Dystonia or Tardive Dyskinesia. Can you please give me your opinion as to my diagnosis?
Third night (last night) RLS gone but simply could not fall asleep and seemed to sweat a great deal. Is this 'eveolution' normal?
See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness (it is the very best treatment for RLS or RAS), Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter. The residual symptoms of insomnia and depression can last another few months.
