Seroquel recreational use

Common Questions and Answers about Seroquel recreational use


Avatar n tn I would not recommend taking this while going to school, work or driving. Recreational use of this drug is i guess possible, but I would not recommend it for the effects of it are not pleasant or euphoric, rather they are dumbing. dont abuse this drug, not because its medically not recommended but because there is nothing really fun about it. And even if you could get any sort of a good high from it you would fall asleep.
Avatar f tn it has a very very low abuse liability and addiction potential thats why a lot of therapist try patients asking for meds for insomnia or anxiety during the night to try and take seroquel first cuz its less likely to be abused, it has no recreational effects. it just makes u feel like zombie, emotionally numb, and knock you out.
Avatar n tn If I add three full glasses of wine while I sit in the hot tub, plus the Seroquel, plus the Ambien, then I sleep. I am at the end of my rope, and could sure use suggestions. I have read that Seroquel does wonders for people with insomnia, but not me. Anyone with an idea, Please Help.
Avatar f tn I have been addicted to methodone for 2 years i didnt take it for pain i took it for recreational use. Last January i was admitted to the hospital because i told my mother about my addiction and she said it was best to go to the hospital to detox . They gave me meds to get threw the bad withdrawls like the pain, hot and cold sweats, insomnia etc. After being in the hospital for 5 days i was clean for about 1 week and then got back on them.
Avatar f tn Not literally at the same time, but like kanna in the morning and seroquel at night? Or would just recreational kanna use be safe?
Avatar f tn Anyway, I know that for most people, atypical anti-psychotics counteract the effects of psychedelics. I'd put cannabis as a very mild psychedelic. Specifically, Seroquel has been known to stop the effects of LSD, psilocybin & ecstasy. So I think the question isn't how cannabis affects Geodon, but the other way around.
Avatar n tn If I had known that I would suffer long-term consequences from such mild recreational use of those pills, believe me I would never have started. Feeling so devoid of ambition, energy, and lust for life is about as much fun as chewing on tin foil!

Avatar m tn I have been taking opiates now for about 8 years. Started in college as recreational, and slowly turned into an addiction. I started out taking 1-2 5mg percocets every other weekend and it led into a fulltime addiction 2 years ago. I use between 60-180mg a day of roxy or ops. My wife has no idea and i'm spending $500-$700 a week. We make over $150k/yr and have $0 money. She always wonders how that is, but I took over the bills so she doesn't see withdraws at the ATM everyday on our card.
Avatar m tn Some of what you described could potentially be psychotic but only a psychiatrist would understand this in full but it is treatable. Use of recreational drugs can trigger the onset of schizophrenia, schizoaffective (schizophrenia with a mood disorder) and other psychotic disorders but it is rare that it would cause permanent psychosis on its own but this could be discussed with a psychiatrist as well. Best to work with them to find the appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
Avatar m tn (b) using it more often than one intends; (c) thinking about reducing use or making repeated unsuccessful efforts to reduce use; (d) giving up important social, family or occupational activities to use it; and (e) reporting withdrawal symptoms when one stops using it. All these criteria can apply to people who are addicted to sex or watch a lot of television. That does not mean that sex or watching television, per se, are problematic.

644988 tn?1236368148 Situationally speaking this fits. Her spin was that this is a positive thing as I use it as a defensive mechanism in order to survive. I'm struggling to "see" the positives of depersonalisation, and view it as completely unpleasant and frankkly terrifying. I'd be really grateful for anyone else's thoughts, oppinions or experiences with this.
5101703 tn?1363723786 CrazyMeds suggests Trileptal as a better choice, but this is an off-label use of Trileptal). Seroquel is an atypical antipsychotic. If weight gain worries you, Geodon is an atypical antipsychotic that is supposed to be weight neutral. Abilify is a third-generation antipsychotic, and also used a fair amount.
Avatar n tn ive been active in 12 step meetings for 17 years, and consider myself alcoholic and an addict. so i believe recreational use of anything mood altering is impossible for me. i resisted the psych meds for a longtime 6 weeks = or -? because of my 12 step history / belief that, "you dont take nothing no matter what" and i believed it. i dont any more, i believe there may come a time, where anyone may need help, some of that help may be uncomfortable to accept.
Avatar f tn So, it started that way...recreational use again, here and there, but I remember the day that I bought a bottle myself-I even told my boyfriend "here I go again"....I should have known better. I wasn't broke anymore due to my Dad's inheritance(and as his only child, his daughter--the fact I've been spending his hard earned money on this junk is KILLING me. Dad was no angel himself, but we had a great relationship), so this addiction has spiraled out of control very very fast.
Avatar m tn ok. here are the meds she's on: Topamax 150 mg, Seroquel 200mg. Pliva(?) 434(number on pill), 4x 0.5 Clonazepam. and 6 pills light green in color and oblong in shape labeled with L2. Dunno about 'em. She's 24. Her parents are very up front. They told me her history. Her father accuses her of being high, just when she does something simple like cry when she has a fight with her friend. Now, this I cannot buy; people can be emotional and not always be stoned.
Avatar m tn I am 21 years old and drink alcohol daily (atleast 6 beers in a usual day) and use recreational drugs on and off, usually just small amounts of cannabis and sometimes mushrooms and lsd. I also recently kicked a serious meth amphetamine addiction (9 months ago) and am on several medications as a result of psychotic episodes/depression and anxiety caused by excessive meth use and staying up for days sometimes weeks at a time.
Avatar f tn I also take Ativan daily, approximately .5 to 5 mg, along with about 75 mg seroquel to fall asleep. i am most concerned about the percocet, which sometimes makes me vomit, but the side effects aren't 'bad enough' to make me want to stop. I know I have a problem again, I am trying to hold down a full time job in a very stressful career, have 3 kids, and have gotten to the point where i would rather stay home with 'my pills' than go out and be with people. i am divorced and live alone.
7890938 tn?1395111352 Back before I knew I was going through withdraw from what I considered a recreational use of Percoset ( I was dumb) I went into the hospital crying saying I couldn't take it anymore. They said it was a thyroid problem and there was nothing they could do. Little did I know... In short- is there anything that will help with the chills and insomnia at all ?
Avatar f tn hospital, from what I've seen in other people the end results were anything from sleeping around to binge spending to grandiose revenge schemes to run ins with the law (your use of recreational drugs may very well have been a form of self medication) or more milder things but ones that did end up affecting their lives. Its complex. The only known quantity is untreated mania is not a good thing and the depression that follows it is even worse (and always happens eventually).
585414 tn?1288944902 I wanted to give her some money to buy food. But she might just use it for drugs as appeared to be a heroin addict. And it might be taken the wrong way if I approached her. I walked away but like anyone else I wished there was something I could have done to help her. But there were disturbing visual hallucinations. And the Seroquel was working. I wasn't generally psychotic overall. That was the beginnings of tardive psychosis. Multiple antipsychotics just wouldn't work.
1275190 tn?1271827001 Yes, Ibizan is right about this.....the true nature of an alcoholic is someone who can no longer drink in a controlled manner. No matter how much we try to control, we end up in the same "mess" of excess, drunkenness, and blackouts. Much of this happens irregardless of the consequences in our lives. At this point....when you've finally had make a decision for complete sobriety. There's no other choice left.
Avatar f tn or an Alcohol and other drugs worker (that's what i'm studying to be)...they are non judgmental and will help you lower or stop your use (which ever you decide) they can also help you in so many other ways :) I'm on Xanax (was taking upto 4mg a day) too and was addicted to painkillers...and i'd also binge drink (while taking large amounts of painkillers). i still take xanax but only when needed.
Avatar f tn I am supposed to take 25mg of seroquel at bedtime and have , but I hate how it makes me feel in the morning. Also, have heard about weight gain with seroquel, more with larger dosages, but I do not want to gain any weight at all. I hate to deal with my monthly weight/water gain from my period. That is hard enough for me to handle. Anyway, Lamictal does help me, controls my mood swings and depressed feelings along with I have way fewer outrage feelings of anger.
Avatar m tn I guess it really just depends on what kind of doc you have. Mine wasn't the most compassionate doc, and when I told him what I was going thru, he labeled me as a "high risk medication use" patient. And that label is still with me today unfortunately. Thing is, is that I didn't abuse them, I actually didn't even take what was prescribed.
Avatar n tn And when their doctors cut them off (whether gradually or cold-turkey) some, not all, but some patients escalate their habits to other drugs or even illegal drugs as a means of self-medicating, or plain recreational use. This kind of rhetoric about the inherent evils of the system are what happens when dramatic rationalization overpowers reason. and to a greater extent, the desire to place responsibility on someone or something else.
Avatar m tn As far as DEA Scedule 2 narcotics are concerned, they are reserved for the most serious medical conditions and certainly NOT for recreational use. Around here we have a heroin epidemic with MANY addicts being found dead with the needle still in their arm due to the purity and high added dose of crystalline fentanyl added to the mixture. This is absolutely Russian Roulette, and I would strongly advise anyone buying street narcotics get into rehab ASAP before they die. IMO.
Avatar n tn I took Xanax recreationally as a kid, and certainly wouldn't want to use it to treat anxiety. No doubt it works, but there are too many drawbacks.
