Common Questions and Answers about Seroquel and rls

seroquel

Avatar_f_tn I tried the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> for sleep while going thru withdrawals and it gave me the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> 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.
Avatar_m_tn If it were me, i would take up to 30 mg of diazepam instead of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span>.....and read the post above concerning one individuals experience with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span>......lots of natural things that do work also. Check out the amino acid protocol and the Thomas Recipe posted at bottom right of page.
425312_tn?1279969779 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> to just get some sleep and my legs started going crazy.?
222369_tn?1274478235 of the GABA receptors in my brain and too much adrenaline----the xanax and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> 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!
663901_tn?1232653271 So one of the reasons I wanted to stop taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> 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....
Avatar_f_tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> 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.
Avatar_n_tn Hi, What other symptoms are present? There is no specific test for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> and it is important that the four basic criteria for diagnosing the disorder are met.
Avatar_f_tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> 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.
Avatar_f_tn Instead of klonopin,why don't you try Hylands Restful Legs for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span>? I think it works better...The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> 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!!
576054_tn?1217786738 But then I started on some new meds, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> 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.
Avatar_f_tn on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> you said a advil and tylenol combination helps my husband has <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> really bad at times so how do you do the combination take 1 advil and 1 tylenol . any input would be great.
425312_tn?1279969779 Boost is great. It's probably the Ativan and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> that helped with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span>. It could also just be you are getting better. YIPPPPEEEE Congrat's on day 5 !
Avatar_m_tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> low dose, for sleep. and Clonidine for the creepy-crawly feeling and control of blood pressure variations.

1058304_tn?1257045915 I have been off them for 5-6 days now and all wd's are gone with the exception of sleep. I already have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> 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.
464044_tn?1343705643 Last night I took four muscle relaxers before I finally got some rest, I think I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> 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.
Avatar_f_tn Something weird, the only 2 or 3 major things are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> 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.
Avatar_f_tn i myself also suffer from depression i am on 20 mg of lexapro a day and take 800 mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> 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.
Avatar_m_tn I have tried CBT, seeing a psychiatrist and even she is puzzled as she had me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span>, 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.
1476003_tn?1331231592 It contains minerals and amino acids that will calm you AND help the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span>. 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!!
723341_tn?1232341853 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> 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.
Avatar_m_tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> 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..
1465528_tn?1286302753 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!!!!
Avatar_f_tn It really helps with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> and anxiety and just pains in general! I found that I couldnt wean either and just dumped my pills down the toilet and jumped! Some people can wean off but for me CT was the easiest way! Keep posting and let us know how you are doing!!
Avatar_m_tn I have tried to quit these little buggers before and always relapsed due to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> 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.
1203675_tn?1285879034 When i was going through it they gave me clonidine and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span>. 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.
Avatar_m_tn If not, start now as this will help things progress and may even help with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span>. 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!!
Avatar_m_tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> 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.
Avatar_n_tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> 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?
Avatar_n_tn Third night (last night) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> gone but simply could not fall asleep and seemed to sweat a great deal. Is this 'eveolution' normal?
Avatar_f_tn See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness (it is the very best treatment for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>rls</span> 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.
