Seroquel and xanax together

Common Questions and Answers about Seroquel and xanax together

seroquel

I was depressed, it turns out from benzos, and the dr said I was atypical bipolar and started me on seroquel. Seoquel was like a bad acid dream, visions in my head, made me so out of it, and 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.
I was put on Seroquel XR and 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.....
I used it years ago for Borderline Personality Disorder and Depression. It is way, way stronger than Xanax 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 seroquel, xanax, and 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 seroquel 25mg., at bedtime, and they want to taper me off xanax..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!!
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!
I'm wondering if it's possible to be able to take Clozaril and Zyprexa together to help control my symptoms of Schizoaffective Disorder - Bipolar Subtype?

my panic and anxiety attacts are awful, i cant function without xanax. the doctors kept me on this drug all this time, i know i have to get help. i am starting to count my pills now,this is so awful. last week i was running low,asked my doctor for more,he rufused,the pharmacist filled it. the doctor was so incinsitive,told me to cut back.how can i cut back,when my body craves it. i am now taking 1 mg ,the directions say to take 1 every 6 hours...what a laugh... i take 1 about every 3 hours.
Everything was fine until 2 weeks ago. I ordered Xanax via the internet because i was about to take a plane trip and to move out of the apartment i was sharing with my boy friend at the time. i felt overwhelmed by what the future was holding for me ( just broke of a relationship, moving into an apartment by myself for the first time ever, being by myself, having to go onto an airplane ect.), so i thought that an anti anxiety medication would help me through this.
saw my neuro today and he mentioned klonopin due to the side effects of xanax. i don't mind switching. i just as soon not have the xanax excpet it works when needed and is quick. any thoughts / experience with the klonopin med?
if you have true severe panic attacks you would find that they dont work at all they make u sleepy and thats all. youre sleepy and just scared to fall asleep.theese drugs such as valium and xanax get bad names because ppl take them for party purposes, not for the real issues, and for us with the REAL problems "monkey dope" doesnt work. i have had panic attacks so bad before that i would of drank yak **** if a dr said it would ease it.
I am a chronic patient of panic attacks, palpitation and anxiety and tried each of the above-mentioned medications, such as Librium, Valium, Ativan and Xanax. I found Ativan and Xanax more effetive and suitable. My physician has advised to add up Buspar, 5 MG combined with Xanax 0.5 MG Does somone at the Forum has some experioence and information about Buspar?
I currently take Depakote for my moods and I was on Seroquel for sleep, but I can't stand the weight gain and sluggishness anymore. Soooo, I saw a sleep doc and he has me on a combo of Ambien and Librium (I asked for Librium because I used to have an issue with Xanax and I heard Librium is the safest benzo), but I gotta tell ya, this stuff does nothing for me.
1) Is it typical and appropriate to prescribe daily doses of Klonopin, Lactical, Seroquel, AND Celexa (plus Xanax on an as needed basis)? 2) If so, would it be typical and appropriate for a patient who has never had a seizure, and has not been diagnosed with manic depression, schizophrenia, or any other psychosis? 3) Would the combination of these 4 (or 5) drugs be likely to cause a side effect of interference with thinking, memory, and speech?
I have been taking Xanax ER for 3 1/2 years. I was told by an "addictions specialist" that it was "non-addictive" since it was slowly released. I never abused it or took it other than as prescribed. NOW I am suffering, and I do mean suffering, very embarrassingly from incontinence. I will not go out almost at all and I live alone. I am dying of loneliness.
I have tried Cipralex, Efexor, Fluanxol, Xanor (Xanax), Rivotril, Seroquel, Ritalin, Wellbutrin, Esperide. All had horrible side effects and and had to stop and try something else. I am currently taking Valdoxane and Molipaxin, but feel completely detached and unemotional, which is a problem as I have been married 9 months and my wife is 7 months pregnant. My doctor hads taken my off Molipaxin and prescribed me Lyrica to take in conjunction with Voldoxane.
You may want to talk to psych about possibility of trying a mood stabilizer like Seroquel to help with the swings. The swings may be related to the anxiety and depression. One of the best tools I can recommend to you is a journal. I have found those things to be incredibly useful and was able to get my meds stabilized with my doctor efficiently through journaling.
He promised me he wouldn't. The tylenol pm seems to be helping a little bit. The seroquel and xanax seem to make my legs crawl more.
I read side effets of drugs like Depakote, Lamactil, Abilify and Seroquel and blanch and yet people who look at Lithium see it as scary... May be that I am biased because it works for me but its nothing to be scared of.
Unfortunately I can't give you advice on "who" to go to. I'm far from where you are. I wish I could. My own personal dr. hasn't excepted new patients for 3 years. If it wasn't for an LPC he had working for him I wouldn't have got in. I pray God puts the right person in your path like he did for me. This is what I know about mine: he is a board certified psychiatrist. (He has "MD" after his name).
heya, Glad I came across this community, enjoyed reading some of the posts, helpful info for sure. Currently I am taking Wellbutrin XL, topamax, Lamictal, and Xanax (for sleep) and have been feeling desperate on what to try next for my Bipolar. I started on meds over 10 years ago when I was "diagnosed" (although not told with that terminology", then put eventually on Seraquel, Zoloft, Prozac, Buspar, Celexa......
We've been on this ride two times already, both times I just rode out the acute withdraws for a week. Then I just feel crazy forever developed an anxiety disorder. So I start using again and it goes on until I get caught again. Well its that time again where I've run through all my money destroyed my credit and continually lied to my wife about my addiction she thinks I'm clean and doesn't know where the money is going.
(were in treatment together) die since I got sober, and just this last weekend, one of my very good friends overdosed on Xanax and Seroquel and is now in the hospital in a coma. The one thing these people had in common was that they did not take a serious approach to aftercare. I go the AA route and it works amazingly well for me, but if that's not a good fit then by all means try something else. The important thing is that we addicts must be proactive in fighting our addiction.
I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
My husband is going through treatment the 3rd time..He has Geno type 1A and stage 3 fibrosis..He is on trazadone..seroquel..xanax..and also has a mophine pump (due to 7 back surgeries many yrs ago and deterioting bones of his neck)he still wants to be able to drink as he says we only are here once and he has been going through so much pain..We have only been married 1 1/2 yrs..and when i met him 1 yr prior to that he was diagnosed with Hep C..I thought we go through this together..
HI, I normally take 120 mgs of methadone daily ( been clean off opiates or over 6 months now), take 2mgs of Klonopins daily, and 50 to 100mgs of phenergan (promethazine or promethazine hyrochloride, ) , AND 0.2 mgs of Chlonodine a day,. . . . .AND, 200mgs oF seroquel ( but only used for sleep. Im prescribed all the meds so this pill i found which i knew was a Tramadol/Ultram 50 mgs. Is that safe? The only interaction that i am worried about is the methadone.
I had anxiety before going to bed so I took ativan. I also took my seroquel and trazodone. Will I be ok?
I too have had all the various workups for my health and am otherwise fine. I took xanax, and the first pill worked fine then after that they didn't work anymore Now i've started prozac and I feel even worse, everytime I stand up I get the feeling im going to black out. Hopefully this will go away soon. I feel like my life is over, like I will never have it back and I am just destined to lie in a bed all the time worried about everything and be dizzy.
