Seroquel vs xanax

Common Questions and Answers about Seroquel vs xanax


Avatar m tn i too have tried your combo and i actually had good sleep with it. best sleep so far this year for me is the ambien. deep, restful, and lasts about 4-5.5 hours of sleep. otherwise, toss & turn difficult to get comfortable. the doc brings up the risks with xanax and doesn't want me getting to that point i suspect. i may try the klonopin but it sounds "heavy" med vs the "light" med of xanax. xanax has been great for the exasperations that come out of nowhere.
Avatar n tn Hi Ryan, Why did you write to Ellen that Klonopin could worsen her depression? I have been on Klonopin for about a month and a half and I have noticed an increase in depression (I am NOT on any anti depressants). Overall I just roll with it and try and stay positive and I started to get acupuncture along with talk therapy. This week I will see my p-doc and I'm sure all of this will come up in my visit. Do you think Klonopin causes weight gain as well?
906819 tn?1242457262 I was wondering if anyone has tried the Ambien/Xanax combo at night for sleep because that was offered to me. Do you find that Xanax is stronger than Librium? Does anyone think I should try the two together? The only problem is I would problem need like 2 mgs of the Xanax because of my bodies' tolerance to this stuff. Looooong history.
377493 tn?1356505749 I also have nausea and flu-like symptoms and wondering if it's from the xanax. I've been on xanax for about 8 months, started at .25 mg and now .50. I just feel "icky" all the time . Any comments would be appreciated!
Avatar m tn -) I already take a HIGH dose of Klonopin daily (8 mg), who is not effective anymore and we add 1 mg of Xanax, who work for3 weeks and stop working... so I don't see how my PDoc would be able to add more benzo meds to calm the initial anxiety when I will start the SSRI... For the SSRI, i'm used to all of them... They was like candy for me in the past, no side-effects like increase anxiety but MAJOR weight gain...
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been somewhat in the situation that you are in. My doctor had me on 1 mg. Xanax 4 times a day. After a year or so, I sat down with my doctor, and explained that the xanax was not working as well as it once did. He kept me on the same dose of xanax and added Vistaril. It only took a couple of days before I was back in his office being taken off of the Vistaril. I had severe headaches not to mention that I flipped and totaled my brand new pathfinder.
Avatar m tn I am lucky enough to be perscribed Citalopram, xanax, and seroquel. am I better off just riding in the fg till this i over rather than bombarding my system with stimulants to make energy try to appear...I knew this was coming so I do have a generous supply of 1mg xanax which I am supposed to take 3 times aday but I took 2 for a while in preperation.....PLEASE some one share some info with me I called into work today and I can't do it again tomorrow...p.s.
Avatar n tn I am just really freaked out, I do have Xanax which I don'y much touch, Ive missed many days of work because of all this pain medication. I want my life back, but I also have to live with this pain in my back. Any advice would help greatly. Does L-Lysine help with detoxing from Norco? I am seeing a new doctor Monday a pain specialist and likely he will just give more pain meds....What does tramadol do I don't see any help with this medication?
Avatar f tn In other hands, you can ask to try the Xanax at LOW dose, it's more effective to prevent the panic or stop them but the effect don't last a long time and you need to take a lot of them daily to keep the panic at bay... One solution will be to ask for the Klonopin, who sometimes work well for panic...
574118 tn?1305138884 Today i can't be better. good for me. That is due to stopping the benzo (xanax) cold turkey. I took xanax for 7 continuous years without one single interruption. Usually benzos are addictive and one should be cautious during withdrawal. It seems because my dose was already small 0.375mg/day only (0.125 at noon + 0.
Avatar m tn it does control moods well but i guess you have to way up the side effects vs the benifits. i am on seroquel xr and normal seroquel. the xr works quite well to control moods.
358304 tn?1409713092 =/ Been talking to my wife and crying... I hate crying, but it feels good right now. I have some xanax in the kitchen medicine cabinet, and am SO tempted to take one tonight just to chill out for a few. But don't want to go down that road again... it's like what you said, I'm FIGHTING with myself and EVERYTHING and EVERY decision. GRRRR. LOL. I'll figure it out. :) Thanks again FOR EVERYTHING.
980052 tn?1262970679 I also take celexa (for now) for a little bit of break through depression seasonal...I was on seroquel for sleep but since the baby $ mos) ago I had to stop b/c it really knocked me out I've done ok w/o it. she tried me on abilify and I felt very stopped that so I am now on nuerotin depakote xanax and celexa but am def looking to replace the depakote w/ something that can be taken along w/ these meds so I lamictal looks/sounds like a good alternative for me.
Avatar n tn I'm 18 and for a few years I have suffered from severe anxiety and depression.. which i think the depression comes from the anxiety since that's what stops me from doing what i want to do in life. This article really makes me feel less alone, i relate so much. I'm young but i've never liked drinking, smoking pot, etc.. but realized the one thing i really liked were opiates, i would abuse them through high school and off and on for the last 2 or 3 years.. but i never felt addicted.
369224 tn?1200677576 Also,what mineral supplement do I take with breakfast? Just a Multi-vitamin? I can take ambien for sleep and have a couple .25mg peach xanax put back in case their needed. Sounds like they may come in handy for the first 4 days. Thanks for the help!
Avatar n tn I mean the real ****, too -- Vicodin (all strengths), Xanax, Valium, Ritalin. . .even (and I found this funny, if only in a twisted way) ReVia was offered on one of these sites. I don't know where the hell this came from, or why such an evil pop-up window would appear from a site like this. . .someone obviously has a sick sense of humor. I'm not a "wacko", but sometimes I wonder how "random" things like this really are. . .
Avatar f tn I drink and pass out all the time. Alcohol used to help me but now I can't even handle it anymore. Im prescribed Xanax for anxiety but they won't give me any more than 2.5 mg. and that does almost nothing for me. Thanks for starting this page, it's nice to be able to read other people's stories and know im not alone.
Avatar n tn I found Lamictal to be a godsend to even out my moods, and I'm not bi-polar - but there are side effects, and not everyone can take it because in a small percentage of people it can cause Stevens Johnson syndrome. I tried 25 mg Seroquel during my periods, and it evened me out, but was too sedating. You and your doctor will find the right combo with some experimenting. So don't let that keep you from trying Topomax - worst thing that can happen is you don't like it and quit.
Avatar n tn i have been drug and alcohol free for a little over four months now and take a drug called seroquel to sleep... i had pancreatitis in december and was on ambien again at the time and they tried me on seroquel instead for sleep... seroquel is an anti-psychotic, a neuroleptic drug used to treat schizophrenia... but it has such a sedative side-effect that it is effective as a sleep agent..... i am not schizophrenic!!
