Suboxone and seroquel

Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone and seroquel

suboxone

Seroquel is one of the 'atypical antipsychotics' that came out about ten years ago. They were first used for serious mental illness like schizophrenia, and then for bipolar disorder, and then for the thing we 'call' bipolar in children, that really isn't bipolar disorder.
i don't know what Seroquel is. Why don't you call your doc? And why were you on Suboxone for so long? And I thought that the Sub is supposed to help with WDs? I don't understand what is going on? But you sound like you should call an advice nurse. I'm sorry I can't help!!!
Just wondering, what are the effects of Suboxone, Seroquel and Klonopin? He is on 12 mg of suboxone daily, and is prescribed 2 mg of Klonopin but he is abusing that already and taking about 20 mg of the klonopin. I am not overly worried, just because he was taking about 350 mg of valium a day before going on the sub a month ago, but of course there is some concern. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
I have heard of people switching from Methadone to Suboxone. It really needs to be done under a doctors care. I think you have to be below 30 mg and stop taking the Methadone for almost 5 days. I was prescribed Seroquel while on Suboxone. All of these drugs are super strong, so please do this under a doctors care.
A physician may be able to prescribe you some Requip for the restless leg syndrome, Neurontin for agitation and malaise, and possibly something like Seroquel low dose for the insomnia. The good news is that by November 2nd it should not be picked up in the blood test any longer and I promise you will be feeling better and better every day. It may take months to actually feel great again.
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.
7 weeks ago he went on Suboxone and started to take about 4 mg of klonopin and 50 mg of valium along with 50 mg of seroquel. 5 weeks ago, the doctor started weaning him off the klonopin and changed him from seroquel to trazodone. ( the valium was never prescribed..he just took that on his own ). On his own, he decided to increase his klonopin dosage and add seroquel back to his regimen.

A physician may be able to prescribe you some Requip for the restless leg syndrome, Neurontin for agitation and malaise, and possibly something like Seroquel low dose for the insomnia. The good news is that you have not been taking it for too long or too many, but you will have withdrawals. You might want to taper it down instead of c/ting it. The genler you taper it the better, but do expect some withdrawals. I promise you will be feeling better and better every day.
Hopefully it will help. I have been clean and sober for almost 9 mos and on Suboxone for the whole time. It is a great tool for recovery. BUT you are right to be very careful. I was on 300-350 mg Methadone a day for several years. Suboxone attaches to the same receptors that the drugs do, immediately "kicking out" the drug itself. Thus, it send the body into immediate and acute withdrawel. That is why it is important not to have much if any of the drug still in your system.
This is my first time to this site, but I was wondering, my dr is putting me on suboxone this Friday, he couldn't do it last visit because I had methadone in my system and I've heard how it would put you into immediate withdrawals after taking it so, my dr prescribed me a few meds to get me by until Friday when he can give me the script for suboxone, in the mean time the Seroquel XR 150 mg was helping me very well to sleep, but now it's like I'm not even taking it at all, can anyone explain to m
I am taking Welbutrin for a few months and now they added seroquel for depression. I have been taking the seroquel for over 3 weeks, not sure why he had me try adding that. I have already tried effexor, cymbalta and abilify and nothing is working. Feel like doing nothing but laying around, missing out on enjoying my hunting! Also cry at any time for no reason. I also take Suboxone for pain. What next??? go back to the dr every month and it is always trial and error.
I take seroquel in 150mg and it don't do **** at all any more i have to swallow 2 pills to knock me out I.
My doc put me on Seroquel and Envega as nothing else would work. I have been able to come down a couple of 100 mgs of Seroquel, so I am on 300 extended release of Seroquel at night along with 3 mgs of Envega as well at night. I get up at 5 and read and do Tai Chi exercises. But I am SO doped up till noon/1:00 pm that I have to take a nap around 8 a.m. I then don't have the strength to hardly get off the couch and I have NO drive to do anything till late afternoon when I start to feel better.
seroquel is very strong .. i was put on it along w/suboxone and it just wiped me out and made me soo sluggish the following day .. what dosage do they have him on? maybe it's too high .. is he on any other type of meds? let us know . .

Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter.
I am taking 100 mg of seroquel and no sleep. I know I have been on the shiat for a while so I should expect this....

Well best of luck to you and hope youre back to normal in no time. I hope you keep posting your progress--thanks!
I am so glad you are doing so well, since Suboxone is an opiate and is extremely addictive. People find it just as difficult to taper and quit. One of the patients in our clinic, who we had to detox from Suboxone, was so addicted, that no matter how far down she titrated this drug she could not get off. At one point she was literally just licking the 1 mg strip, but she could not give it up.
He is a great manipulator, he doesn't work, and diagnosed depressed, takes seroquel and pristig. He sleeps All day and up all night watching tv, we sold his car, and took away his laptop. Occasionally we let him use our car to go to meetings, go to the psychiatrist and his counselor, we have gps on his phone to monitor him. We love him and want to keep him alive and out of jail. He says he wants to recover but doesn't put alot of effort into it.
Hi, My boyfriend and I are both about to get off Suboxone and were wondering how long the detox period lasts, how severe the symptoms are, and if there is anything we can do or take to ease the withdrawal symptoms...I know we can't take opiates, but what about benzo-diazapams, like valium? Will these make the withdrawal worse? Any tips or info anyone has would be greatly appreciated, as we haven't been able to get any straight answers about this anywhere else.
my dependency on the suboxone was completely over. Just an idea, as I never heard of the seroquel before that and it worked like a charm!!
Now that I've had some real experience with it I would advise people to find a doctor who is actually educated about Suboxone/Subutex and addiction before getting on this med long term. And also to really research as much as possible on your own beforehand. This med hasn't really been around long enough to have the kind of information that people really need, so alot of us have side effects that aren't widely known or understood yet.
I just got a prescription filled for Suboxone and am wondering how much I have to be in withdrawals to begin taking Suboxone. I've read that if you are taking under 30mgs of Methandone, you can start Suboxone immediately but have also read that you must be in full withdrawals to begin. If I start the Suboxone now, what will happen? Will I be in worse withdrawals than if I just wait and take in a couple of days? I'm wondering which w/d's will be worse (Methadone or starting Suboxone).
I wake up ny legs and feet hurt and are very stiff. My back, hip and head hurt. I took it at 9pm and it is 1pm. I still am in a fog. Don't even know how I have managed to take care of my 3 kids. My house is pure mess and I can't find the energy to clean it. Is it worth it? Am I suppose to stick it out and it will get better. Give me a 10mg oxycodone and I am superwoman! How come there isn't a psycho drug I can take that will make me feel like I do when I take percocet?
I've been prescribed and taking Suboxone for approximately 30 days and have noticed a significant increase in my blood glucose level. I've asked my pharmacist for her opinion but she knows very little about the topic. I haven't asked my shrink yet but will at my next appointment. In the meantime, this has me spooked. Anyone know???
The seroquel seems to be working very well - I was starting w/d last night and w/in 30mins of taking seroquel I was able to sleep a whole 8hrs - but I'm worried it's b/c I still had sub in my system.
Ironically, I just left my family doctor and he prescribed me seroquel and librium...so Im hopeful tonight is the lucky night! Thank You anyway, its good to know that it was effective for you to sleep..Hell right now I want something to put me on my *** in the worst and best kind of way. ...if that makes sense. Thanks one more time for all your helpful info and god bless you!
