Seroquel and xanax

Common Questions and Answers about Seroquel and xanax


I was depressed, it turns out from benzos, and the dr said I was atypical bipolar and started me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span>. Seoquel was like a bad acid dream, visions in my head, made me so out of it, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my heart rate went up to >125. Some people seem to tolerate it for as simple a use as a sleep aid, but my heart rate has still not gone back to normal.
my doctor gave me seroquel for sleep also, it does tend to make me groggy the next day,so she said for me to try to lower the dose to 25 mgs, it is a common side effect of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> i guess if it effects you this way then it will always effect you this way, my doc told me this side effect doesnt go away with time. but if it helps you sleep while going through withdrawals than take advantage of the times where you can sleep...
I would want to know from the members of this forum about how many people are using <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> only as a sleeping aid in doses of 25 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 50 mg.All suggestions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> answers are welcome.
I thought he was giving me the seroquel to help stablize my moods and help with sleep. A replacement for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Xanax</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> ambien. Didn't think the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> would react in such a violent way. Took last 2 Xanax Moday-a little jittery and sluggish but ok...just scared after reading so much about DONT go cold turkey. He is out of town -so er would the answer. Thanks....
My Dr. gave me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Effexor so that I can start weening off the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Xanax</span> but it does not seem to be working. First of all the seroquel is for Bipolar disease which I don't have, I have trouble sleeping and the anxiety is due to no drinking and my stress related job. I don't have panic attacks and I don't feel scared of people or other things but I do have anxiety from all the traveling that I do.
I have been trying to come off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Xanax</span> for 2 month. i was taking 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Xanax</span> at bedtime to sleep. im now down to only taking 1/4 per night, and im having problems sleeping at night, the last 4 night i havent got maybe 2 hr of sleep.
I decided to put the boat in the water to do some fishing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I couldn't even concentrate! Has anyone taken <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Effexor at the same time, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> if so what were the feelings youo experienced your first time. Any inputs are greatly appreciated!
Why is it that when I take a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Xanax</span> or a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> 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.?
I was put on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> XR <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> could not tolerate it... I couldn't get up in the morning, driving was iffy and I was constantly tired throughout the day.. I'm back on a regular dose of 200mg/night (I take this drug specifically because it helps me sleep, otherwise I can't sleep). the suggestion of breaking out the dose throughout the day seems like it may be worth a try.....
Okay now back to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span>. If a person goes off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they need an antipsychotic, after a while the psychosis will return. If its treating mood stabilization same thing. That's not "addiction". That's the symptoms returning. That would be like saying if you went off insulin, your blood sugar level would get dangerously high. Of ocurse it would because the symptoms of diabetes would return.
I was just thinking, my husband started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> last week <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> has pretty much slept since then. As I already told you, he is bipolar. He no longer has anxiety and when he is awake, he is way more calmer than before. Soooo, I started to search the web and found out that they give a lot of people going through w/d this drug. More herion users than anyone else....but they have found that it helps with opiod users as well. Hmmmm, this may have me excited.
5mg of Effexor ER, 200mg of Lamictal, 60 mg of Buspar, 1200 mg of Neurontin, 600mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> .5 mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Xanax</span> ER as needed. I feel better than I ever had in my life, but the only problem I have now is excessive weight gain--about 30 lbs. I am currently 5'7 and 188 lbs. I want to get my weight down to 160 lbs. As a New Year's resolution I have been working out between 30-60 minutes 5 days a week combining cardio and weight training.
I, 56-year-old female was on wellbutrin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> for the last 2.5 years for GAD <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> depression, following a psychotic 5 days in an acute care hospital. i also take provigil as needed for daytime sleepiness. the wellbutrin was 100sr generic, and seroquel 75, of which I take 1/3 of seroquel as needed for anxiety.
I have been on Wellbutrin for depression <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> for sleep for about two weeks now. I have lost some weight from the depression and from taking Wellbutrin. the weight loss is about 20lbs. Will I regain my appetite or will I continue to have a lousy appetite? Also I have had several crying jags in the second week of this medication. Is this normal to have these? Sometimes I have about three of them a day? I told my psychiatrist and he said everyone cries is that bad?
I used it years ago for Borderline Personality Disorder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Depression. It is way, way stronger than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Xanax</span> which is also very strong, so I would not be taking anything if you are on Serequel. It's a sedative and tranquilizer. Clonidine is not addictive and fantastic for withdrawing but you have to check with your doctor if you can take together. I really would not think it would be ok but you need to check. Like A.B.N.
how much <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Xanax</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> alcohol causes an overdose. im qworried about my sister, she ha been prescribed Xanax for 8 years now at 2mg a day, so her tolerance is well established. she is also an alcoholic. thankfully, she knows not to combine Xanax while drinking, but what about the addition of seroquel? could she OD from the pill combination alone? would then the addition of alcohol just pretty much seal her fate?
Started taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> 25mg., at bedtime, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they want to taper me off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Xanax</span>..Terrifies me!! I'm it all together seroquel makes me sleep like a bear, and I do seem calmer the next day..Way different calm than Xanax. Also on 3 blood pressure meds., and paxil 40mg. Help!!
I have previously taken at various different times, Celxa, Lexapro, Effexor, Cymbalta, Klonopin, ativan, wellbutrin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> trazadone. I recently saw a new Dr <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> xr 50 mg to be taken at night. He said to still use the klonopin as needed. I suffer from depression, anxiety, insommnia and he believes I am bipolar.
of the GABA receptors in my brain and too much adrenaline----the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Xanax</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> bind to those receptors <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> help the brain shut down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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 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!
Obviously im on too much medication, but theres a long story behind that. anyways, I have been on 30mg adderalXR 3 times a day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 50 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> at night <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 2mg Xanax(as needed) for the past 9 months. I have never ever been the type of person whos weight fluctuates. About 3 months ago I started taking 20mg lexapro at night with the 50mg seroquel. All I know is i used to be a size 4...ive been a size 4 for the past 8 years probably...NOW, i am a size 10 or 12...
Ya this is true! I am taking Depakote <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> those have helped my manic episodes. It helps me level out because I am so up a lot with a lot of energy. So these medicines are a great choice for me. look into it and see if this will help you too.
My anxiety is very bad right now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I need sleep. SOOO sleep deprived. Hopefully this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> xr 50mg will help with insomnia, anxiety and appetite soon.
Ringing in ears, tingling all over, and hyper last night starting about 1 hour after took med. had to take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Xanax</span> to sleep. Slept in way too late <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was drowsy ALL day. I will give it 2 weeks if possible, but I don't know.
Did Lexapro make you feel dull neither happy or sad I couldn't cry and even though I had horrible anxiety attacks hence the Xanax the lexapro made me feel horrible, I have been off of it since May <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I can't believe the difference.I can cry when I am sad I feel the difference between right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> wrong, my kids can't believe the difference since I have been off the Lexapro had anyone else experienced that dull feeling while on the Lexapro?

My question about the benzos is should i tell my new doc, the only one i can find aside from the one ive been seeing who takes my insurance that ive been diagnosed with schizophrenia, and am on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span>, celexa, risperidal or should i omitt these parts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> tell him the plain truth about how libruim helps me by, helping me keep my anxiety under control so i can work, which not working is causing dire straights for me, basically that the reason i need it along with helping anxiety in general.
the knowledge that I have is that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Xanax</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> do not have an impact on your liver. Also 50 mgs of Seroqeul is very low dose. I am on 600. However it looks like you have hepatitis c and you probably know you shouldn't drink because of that. there are likely a lot of medications that effect your liver. the only ones I know of are Tylenol and pain medicines that contain acetaminophen, but I am sure there are likely a lot more.

Im not going to take anti depressants, i already take lamictal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquel</span> for bi polar. there has to be something i can replace the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Xanax</span> with to get over this quickly so i dont have a seizure like last time i tried. Please help me.
My doc says adican is the least addictive..For me i love <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Xanax</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> knew it was not right for me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> i was going to abuse it so i never filled my next script..maybe you can try and anti depressent with the adivan and it will help...That is what my doc did..i cannot get off of my lexapro and don't care if i have to take it all my life..
