Common Questions and Answers about How long do seroquel withdrawal symptoms last


Avatar f tn I was on this medication for 3 years and was cut off cold turkey because insurance ran out. What do I do to help myself get through this withdrawal and how long should it last? I start college tomorrow and i'll do whatever i can to get through this and stay in school.
Avatar f tn I'm worried sick about her having withdrawal symptoms or going manic. I have spoken to the hospital and they say it will be fine but my research says otherwise. I don't know what to do. Her regular doctor is on vacation till Monday. Any insight or help will be greatly appreciated.
8520825 tn?1398515060 My experience with seroguil w/d has been horrendous. I was rx'd 200 mg at bedtime for insomnia. I was going through a suboxen and Xanax withdrawal and was rx'd seroguil for sleep. Now that I'm over the w/d from the suboxen/xanax, I wanted to stop the seroguil. I was on it about 3 mths and stopped cold turkey. I'm experiencing awful w/d symptoms. Flu symptoms, lethargy, insomnia, anxiety, can't eat. How long will this last.
Avatar f tn People have been asking this and I haven't seen an answer, so here. HOW LONG DO WITHDRAWALS LAST FROM SEROQUEL??? I was looking for an answer cuz I went off seroquel 400mg cold turkey. nobody had an answer so I documented my painful withdrawal process. Follow my process and withdrawal symptoms will be gone in a week or less!!! FYI: seroquel withdrawals are he worst thing ive ever experienced! The key to seroquel withdrawals is SLEEP and FOOD.
Avatar m tn As I was reading your withdrawal symptoms from Seroquel I can totally relate to a lot of what you were saying. I was put on seroquel just under a year ago for bipolar disorder, 600mg to be exact. I was also put on Lithium which I have found to be really helpful, for bipolar disorder of course. When you say that the seroquel gave you a certain ability to function and to sleep well, I truly can agree with you.
Avatar f tn After hearing all my info,and doing blood work, the only question the ER Dr asked was about the seroquel--how long I had been taking it--and then gave me some shot and a Rx for Xanax, dropped me off at home the same nite. Needless to say, i have not taken the Xanax but continue with the seroquel. i have yet to get a Dr here, but am trying to remain sane enough to plan some appointments.It has been 3 days and every nite i have several attacks starting in sleep.
Avatar m tn -) Do you think I have seroquel withdrawal for so long? Are that symptoms for withdrawal. Please I need help, what can I do? By Baba!
Avatar n tn pardon me if I am wrong abt this but to my knowledge effexor and wellbrutrin are both antidepressants and antianxiety medications they are both in the same family therefore you do NOT have to wean off one before starting the other and therefor will not get the withdrawal effects. there must be some other reason for these symptoms you are experiencing??
Avatar n tn for any CII script filled, so the most you could fill at one time was 100 tablets, capsules, patches, etc., but no restriction on how long that had to last - you could fill one every day if the situation required it. The question of upper dose is nearly always up to the judgement of the prescriber. There are often administrative limits by insurance or whoever is paying (e.g., Medicare), though those most often are aimed at controlling costs more than they are concerned with therapeutic value.
Avatar f tn Had 8 yrs of fentanyl 4 micrograms and dilaudid 2mg pumped in me for MV acct. QUESTION is how long will the withdrawal be? I'm on day 8 and only 20 hrs of sleep. With the worst case of RLS ever. Don't crave the drugs, but the racing thoughts r making me delirious. When does it get better. Snots, squirts and vomiting. Went on for 6 days. Liquid N-Quel works wonders also Amodium AD. Godsend. Need some sleep the creepy crawlies gone and racing thoughts to disappeare, before I go crazy.
Avatar f tn However, I did read an article published by the maker of Seroquel acknowledging withdrawal symptoms. If word comes out that Seroquel is physically addicting and causes horrible withdrawals, people probably wouldn't be eager to take it and sales of the drug could drop. Seroquel is huge right now, this website is covered in ads for Seroquel. As far as the insomnia, I took Seroquel before bed because of how sedating it was for me. After 2.5 years, my body didn't know any other way to sleep.
Avatar f tn If you had stopped and had uncontrolled withdrawal, you should have been put back on the Seroquel at the last dose at which you felt fine and tapered off it at your speed. I would assume that decreased dosage would have limited your adverse reactions.
Avatar f tn I also told my doctor that I didn't feel like going to class everyday (I'm in college) and I rarely do my homework; if I do, I just do it at the last minute. I'm uninspired because I don't like going (because many people there cause me anxiety), but I can't quit. I graduate in December 2009. I'm now starting to think that I need the Paxil as well. I see my doctor in two weeks for a follow-up.
Avatar f tn Take a deep breath bud YOU CAN DO IT as said above w/ds arent good but dont last forever do if for your kids. The more clean time you get behind you the better you are going to feel.
Avatar n tn Is taking 1mg of xanex to help she didn't know she was in trouble, how long would you expect the withdrawral to last would the aleve help.
3119293 tn?1342054132 First, can someone point to a reliable web site where they list the symptoms? Second, how long I can expect this general lousy feeling last? And last, how long will it take to get back to a feeling where I want to do more than just lay around all day? Thank you all in advance for answering my questions.
Avatar n tn I am married with two young children and have a nanny to help me with my kids and household. I want to be med free. I do not have any psychotic symptoms and not sure why doctor put me on this antipsychotic, but now I want to come off of it.
Avatar m tn How long were you on Klonopin, and were you tapered off of it, or was it abruptly d/ced? Klonopin has to be slowly discontinued to minimize withdrawal symptoms. How long have you been off the Klonopin? Since 3/20? If so, you should be on the upswing of the w/d symptoms. Unfortunately, Klonopin has a long half life, which increases length of time for w/d symptoms. Hopefully Ryan will be by and answer your post as well...
Avatar n tn I was given Seroquel in place of Risperidal which totaly did a number on my brain! I was having insomnia and the doc gave me risperidal. The risperidal kept me awake for almost 3 days straight and now I have these strange sensations in my head that the doc says is "just anxiety". I've tried to explain to her that,yes,I have anxiety but it's because of these wierd burning sensations I have in my head.
Avatar n tn If your condition doesn't do you in then the withdrawal symptoms will for darn sure. How can I find relief from these symptoms other than sleep my way through it? How long will this last? I hope someone has the answer because I sure as heck can't find it. I'm just about ready to throw in the towel and go back to taking a small dose just to be able to feel normal.
7610864 tn?1394003844 I know it's my own fault but I need to get through this battle without family. I was just wondering if there are methods to do so you can get through withdrawal?
358304 tn?1409713092 Yes, it does lead to problems down the road, but only when it lasts a long time (as it has for me, unfortunately, but even for me after 8 years of my personal odd reaction to stopping Paxil, I'm not dead of it.) And how do you know you're having cortisol rushes? Have you had your adrenals tested over a period of weeks to see what your normal levels are and whether they're particularly distorted?
Avatar f tn Just wondering is it because of coming of the olanzipine. How long do withdrawal symptoms last? Has anyone else had the same problem coming off olanzipine?
335707 tn?1197306785 Does anyone know if this feeling is from the seroquel and if so, how long does it last? Could this just be some of the damage he has inflicted to his brain/body from the vicodin abuse?
5093508 tn?1390547531 I am weaning off valium & zopiclone (ambien). Yes, it's very difficult on some days, to stick to the weaning off plan, but I am doing it, as I really want to get off these 2 meds. I even try to take less than what my psychiatrist has prescribed. I've researched the different ways people react while tapering their meds, especially these 2. So OK, it says anxiety, depression, anger, nausea etc.
Avatar f tn I started seroquel 3 weeks ago. I take 2 - 25mg during the day and 100mg before bed (cause that will knock you out cold). Putting 50mg under tongue will make it act a little faster. For me it grows in gradually until I finally fall asleep in a bang. Calms me down and is helping me recoverer from a bad benzo addiction. But I am also concerned about its dependance rate and bad side. I dont want to take this too long.
Avatar m tn I am concerned about withdrawal, as even though my total intake each day isnt a lot, my body is used to taking one a day. Is the withdrawal going to be long and hard, I am nervous and scared. I already take medication for severe anxiety (klonopin, effexor 75mg once a day) I just want to know what kind of symptoms and how long I will have to deal with it. ANY AND ALL HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!
Avatar m tn How long can I expect this to last and is there anything I can do to ease these symptoms? I am a 58 year old male, 5’10” and 200 lbs. I do not smoke. Also, my primary care manager doesn’t know much about opiate withdrawal symptoms and as a result isn’t much help. How does one find a doctor with knowledge and experience with opiate withdrawal and should I be looking for a medical doctor or a physiatrist?
Avatar f tn But for right now, to deal with your withdrawal symptoms, 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, Clonidine helps with the creepy-crawly feeling and helps stabilize the blood pressure. All of these medications will make your life easier during this time.
