Seroquel night sweats

Common Questions and Answers about Seroquel night sweats


Avatar f tn I'm with you on that one. I actully slept last night. Fell asleep around midnite and when I woke up at 5am I was very happy. I had some strange dreams though. I know it won't be like that everynight but I'm thankful for what I got. Thanks for the help.
Avatar f tn I am taking seroquel and effexor. I started having night sweats and the doctor gave me cogentin which worked. Has anyone experienced night sweats fromm the drugs? My regular psychiatrist wants me stop taking cogentin but what is an alternative for the night sweats?
Avatar n tn I take 100mg trazodone nightly, and get terrible night sweats 4-5 times each night, all night long. I wake up completely soaked! I took seroquel before, and hated the way It made me feel. I like the way the trazodone works, but I just can't stand the night sweats anymore. They have been going on for about a month now. I thought they might go away after my body got used to the medicine, but it is no different at all.
425312 tn?1279969779 Seroquel is a very powerful drug - I took 200mcg at night for my bi-polar - i couldn't get up at night and my body was lifeless needless to say i am off it now because i got a baby - it helped me sleep and I needed it.
Avatar f tn I just found out I'm pregnant and Im about four weeks along. I didnt take the Seroquel last night and it was horrible. Should I have cut myself off slowly? Would that be safer for my unborn child?
358304 tn?1409713092 I'm refraining. I stopped Remeron. I tried Seroquel 1 night. I do have some safety xanaxes around just in case it's TOO much. But am REALLY refraining. And last night I got a script of Ambien. Thats the ONLY pill I might take from time to TIME. I know it can also be habit forming. But I need some z's. 5mg helped me only sleep 5 or 6 hours last night. But it was better than 2 hours or nothing. I will figure this out! :) I'm seeing a sleep Dr. on Monday. Tell him my history.
Avatar m tn Even though my body and mind are attacking me and I'm not getting enough sleep, I definitely notice much more clarity and drive than I had when I was a zombie because of the Seroquel. Rather than tossing and turning or watching tv all night do some research and really educate yourself on what is happening to you. A lot is happening and understanding that will make it easier to deal. Last time I came off it the withdrawal symptoms lasted about 8 months from the date of my last dose.
Avatar m tn My adverse affects are sleep walking, night sweats and shaking hands until I eat something sweet. I am scared to take a diabetes test. I have hepatitis c.

Avatar f tn Now, he wants to go backto 7.5 mgs. at night if I complain about the Ativan. he's given me Seroquel to try, Resperidol. I never took the Resperidol. He wanted me to take 100 mgs. of Seroquel. I'm 110 lbs. I took 25 mgs - took it one night, slept like I never slept before, but I couldn't take it the next day, tired, drained. I've tried all the SSRI's. They do a number on my jaw - tightnes. I think it's the serotinin. The reason I was taking Flexeril was for back and neck spasms.
1224351 tn?1325378417 had quite a bad sleep last night after dropping my seroquel dose. felt nauseus, sweats, headache, diarreah, not sure if its the lower med dose or if im just unwell. Took my 75mg seroquel at 10pm its now 11.30 and im just starting to feel sleepy, ive not craved any sugar or carbs at all!
1224351 tn?1325378417 made sure i got up at 10am, had a good sleep last night even though i'm down to 75mg seroquel. Had a bad headache, and sweats all day again. Must be withdrawals. Its now 11pm and i've not had munchies again!!! It must have been the meds causing it. Went shopping, then had my hair trimmed. No ups or downs, felt quite stable today. The sunshine today made me feel good.
Avatar n tn For me it's better than the newer antidepressants because I don't see the same problem with night sweats or apathy. I normally tend to have a bit of Raynaud's disease, and oddly enough, amitriptyline and nortriptyline both cause me to have warm hands. I'm not saying it would have that effect on others with poor circulation, but my husband and I both notice my hands are warm and toasty when I take either of these drugs, plus my fingernail color looks less blue.
437036 tn?1225288404 IMOVANE (14mg) for the past 3 months or so IN THE PAST 2 WEEKS i have been experiencing the following symptoms (and in a very serious way) * fatigue * nausea * Shaking/ tremor (BAD) * reflux * Night sweats * vivid dreams * decreased appetite * anxiety ++ * no interest in sex at all * stiff muscles I have to take the cymbalta but want to wein myself off the others- is there any explaination as to why im feeling these side effects?? Why are they so bad?
Avatar m tn But it works for me. There's a few side effects I personally get from it. Sometimes I'll get terrible night sweats, my bed sheets will be drenched :/ It also gives me vivid dreams, sometimes they're really strange but I'd rather have insanely odd dreams than not be able to sleep! And also, when I first started taking it, I'd wake up reaaally groggy the next morning. This can be avoided by taking it earlier in the night. But it's only like that until your body gets used to it.
Avatar m tn But all was OK but the horrible night sweats. I asked my Dr about it and she ordered a sleep study. The sleep study did not show sleep apnea. I was surprised it didn't because I had this problem as a kid. But anyhow the test showed a good sleep patteren with 10 hypo-apnea events lasting only 2 seconds at most. However, my Oxygen level stayed on the low side during the deeper stages of sleep, and dropped to about 82%. It stayed on the low side for over 4 hours.
Avatar n tn The first night I slept okay (I think--kinda foggy). The second night I couldn't sleep bc of RLS. Third night (last night) RLS gone but simply could not fall asleep and seemed to sweat a great deal. Is this 'eveolution' normal?
Avatar m tn Have you taken Seroquel before? I took one Sunday night and it really screwed me up for a whole day or more. I had the worst anxiety in my life for 2 hours until it knocked me out, and the next day I felt like I was underwater all day. Never again! I'm not discouraging you from taking it (it did help me sleep), I'm just saying that you might want to use it as a last resort if you've never tested it before.
Avatar f tn Important information about Seroquel Seroquel is not for use in psychotic conditions related to dementia. Seroquel may cause heart failure, sudden death, or pneumonia in older adults with dementia-related conditions.
Avatar n tn My withdrawal symptoms included chills, feverish feeling, cold night sweats, vivid dreams, ants running through your veins and muscles, etc. They are just begining to subside after 10 days. My other symptoms of anergy, tearfulness, irritability, poor sleep and poor concentration still persist. I have a question for you. How long did it take for the lithium to help you, what were the side-effects as you were increasing the dosage, and did they go away?

4738473 tn?1360039398 Now I cant fall asleep at night and when i do doze off its around 5 or 6 in the monrning and i have to fight myself to get up at 730. Haven night sweats when i sleep to. Any ideas how long this type of thing lasts and how i can safely ease the reactions?
Avatar f tn He is starting to taper off on Monday. This doctor prescribed Topamax 100mg, Seroquel 100mg, and Depakote 500mg. My question is... After being on these for 4 days he is a zombie! He is really sleepy and his speech is so slurred that I have a hard time understanding him. He is also really unsteady on his feet. He has fallen twice tonight just going to the bathroom. And it not even 3 feet away from the bed.
Avatar n tn I am ok once I fall asleep and I sleep through the night but falling asleep can take me half the night w/o any meds to make me drowsy. My doctor offered me seroquel to help with sleep and altough it is supposedly a knock you out type of med I have refused it because I don't want to take any anti-psychotic drug for insomnia as that class of drugs comes with a whole lot of side effects. Please do post what your results are with the trazadone as I am curious about that one.
Avatar f tn I had to spend the weekend with out the seroquel , making me mentally unstable, or having to take the seroquel, which made me physically sick. Nothing is open on weekends here. I kept calling them for the next weeks, no answer. I am part of a therapie for borderline disorders. They even agreed on my side, and didn t understand much either as to why they wouldn t take me.
Avatar f tn At home, the basic technique is to space out the pills your husband takes on a consistent manner until he takes only one at night, then half at night and then none. See if her doctor can write her 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. It will make her withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter.
Avatar f tn day 2 coming upto night 2 with out oxy should i sleep tonight? or will i keep having cold sweats? should i take some valium??
Avatar m tn I can get a day off if needed but other times have sucked it up and gone into work. I have one 8mg suboxen strip which I cut into 8 pieces. Last night was my last time taking norcos ate around 12 of them .. Woke up feeling alright but then the sweats runny nose watery eyes and sneezing started around noon and I knew I was in for it. Ended up not feeling like going through it at work today so used one of the the 1mg suboxen films I cut up.
Avatar f tn An MRI showed nothing unusual. As I was weaning off of low dose Seroquel for insomnia, the Neurologist suggested withdrawal emergent tardive dyskinesia, and stated that it would probably resolve itself shortly (tics, not the pain). Well, it's been almost four months now and I'm still ticcing all over the place and this seems to be consistent with the eye and ear pain, but I can't figure out which one might come first. Other info: At the time the tics and ear/eye pain started I was at 12.
Avatar f tn how long have been taking the seroquel?? here are the side effects of seroquel: Constipation, drowsiness, upset stomach, tiredness, weight gain, blurred vision, or dry mouth may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor promptly. Dizziness or lightheadedness may occur, especially when you first start or increase your dose of this drug. To reduce the risk of dizziness and lightheadedness, get up slowly when rising from a sitting or lying position.
