Seroquel withdrawal headache

Common Questions and Answers about Seroquel withdrawal headache


Avatar f tn Additionally melatonin and Gasx/peppermint oil can help relieve a lot of the side effects of Seroquel withdrawal. I'm going through my third time withdrawaling from Seroquel, this time I was up to 1200mg for about the last five or six years. I've been stepping down every two weeks for about four months. At first it isn't that bad but when you get to around half of your previous dose you will start to notice major withdrawal symptoms.
Avatar m tn Yes I experienced withdrawal symptoms when I was changed from Seroquel to Risperdal and had to titrate off on at the rate my psychiatrist told me to. That is not uncommon. Its chemically separate phenomenon from addiction and if a person follows their psychiatrist's titration schedule in time these concerns will pass.
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 m tn Dear Ronndy I would say that 100 mg Seroquel is a very high dosage to treat insomina. Usually you would take only 10-25 mg in that respect. It seems that you could have some withdrawl problems as you stopped klonopin abruptly. As Paxiled pointed out it is a bit "heavy" to prescribe klonopin for insomnia when "lighter" medications are available, for instance zolpidem or zopiklone. Or anti-histamine(allergy-medication as atarax).
Avatar m tn Does stopping Risperidone give rise to a withdrawal reaction?.If so what are the symptoms?.
Avatar n tn Hi im currently taking 150 mgs seroquel 25mgs Paxil In 08/08 i was given starter pack for Lamictal afraid of rash so i started on 12.
Avatar n tn vertigo, headache, nausea, and general weakness. iOn this third day, off Effexor and on Wellbutrin, I have crying jags and unexpected significant irritability. My pharmacist and doctor's nurse do not have an answer so I turn to those who have used these drugs. 1) Does Wellbutrin have known interactions with other drugs.
Avatar n tn Hey I'm new just jumping in here. I'm on my fourth day withdrawal from vicodin for 2 years. The worst, and I do mean worst is over. You know the hopelessness. But I'm still suffering from depression and tired all the time. I Have also been taking phentermine diet pills for about 5 years now. Not as often since I started the vicodin. I'm taking them everyday again now just for the energy to pick my children up from school. Will I have withdrawal from this too?
Avatar n tn It was prescribed for me for ocassional use for mild to moderate pain like headache, muscle soreness, etc. I used it only ocassionally for several months. About 4 months ago, I became involved in a fairly intense project and was experiencing more discomfort. Without really thinking much about it, I started using tramadol every day and then increased this to 2-3 times each day. The dosage was 100mg, so I was taking 100-300mg daily (or 2-6, 50mg pills) for 3 months.
Avatar f tn so I guess what I want to know is how much longer is this insomnia and anxiety stuff (withdrawal) gonna last based off of time period and dose? Any answer are greatly needed and appreciated!!!!
Avatar n tn However we agreed thats because most people that take antiphycotics are rarely taken off and simply changed from one drug to another or are taking something like seroquel at the same time so dont experience these withdrawls. Hang in there! and dont take Ambien an hour befor bed.
Avatar n tn never mentioned that Effexor is associated with withdrawal symptoms. The effects of the Wellbutrin seemed to kick in almost immediately. My libido jumped way up, and just like that I quit smoking cold turkey. I couldn't stand the smell or taste of cigarettes all of the sudden. Now without the smoking, I also found that my morning coffee was nearly forgotten. (I'm sure that withdrawal from nicotine and caffeine added to my symptoms.
Avatar n tn I've taken valium for stress but it's also used for alcohol withdrawal, not sure if that will also work for codeine. Seroquel might be an option (it's an anti-psychotic which is used off-label for insomnia but studies have been done into its effects on opioid withdrawal)... Good luck!
Avatar n tn I backed up to where I had not had withdrawal and slowed my remaining taper, but continued to get withdrawal, just not so severe. I was fortunate that I still had enough extra patches to allow this, but I found I could not function without adding in some short-acting meds to curb the withdrawal. This only delays the process, I know, but I didn't see a need to suffer while I figured out a longer-term plan.
Avatar n tn I don't think many people realize just how crippling a caffine-related withdrawal headache can be. My Cuban wife has been making espresso for me twice a day for almost ten years. Last year one day when I was laying Spanish tile in our bathroom, both of us forgot the coffee altogether. I woke up around midnight that night with a headache so severe that I wept like a child - and I'm a 56 year-old rugged, outdoorsey type. Just thought I'd ask. Best of luck to you both.

1671244 tn?1304794585 I went through withdrawal b4, and it is very unpleasant. Whenever you abruptly stop taking a med, especially something you have taken every day for the length of 5 yrs, you are going to increase the anxiety & panic attack feelings. Your doctor should have tried weening you off, which is much safer than just stopping cold turkey. Is there a reason your doctor took you off? Was clonzepam still effective?
Avatar f tn I just had a thought - it may be the sudden withdrawal from the seroquel causing the headaches also. If they're no better tomorrow then definitely ring your health care provider.
447130 tn?1225474466 seroquel willknock you out or a handful of 5-htp the latter i do not suggest on any level of course. Seroquel sent me straight into headache mania afterwards though. isuppose we are all different. I am surprised i took them, very low week last week trauma brings on rash actions. Pills are not the way forward. Dark room from 8.30 onwards in silence, think yourself out and drift off.
Avatar n tn I could go no lower than 5 mg, by now the drug was producing the symptoms it was primarily designed to treat, upon withdrawal. Bad sleep, screwed up dreams, and exotic phobias. So I stuck it out at 5mg's, with not much hope in sight. The avg. dose of zyprexa is 20mg's. I learned of seroquel, designed to do almost exactly the same thing, but not in the same family at all, just the same class...atypical antipsychotics. Seroquel is cheaper, which sounded good.
Avatar f tn I have sleep apnea and depression and anxiety. I was put on Seroquel and Lexapro. These last two helped lessen the depression and anxiety but made my sleepiness and fatigue much worse. Also, I was putting on a lot of weight due to a strong craving for sweets every afternoon. My psychiatrist had told me if the fatigue got really bad I could cut the Lexapro in half, from 10mg to 5. I just started doing this 2 days ago.
Avatar m tn Update: I think this could be a drug-withdrawal side effect. My psychiatrist put me on Seroquel last fall when I was having a killer, KILLER pain in my right eye. She had suspected that all my symptoms could be a conversion disorder, and because the eye pain was so intense, she put me on a very low dose of this atypical antipsychotic medication in the hope it would interrupt the conversion disorder process.
1255936 tn?1296627061 I love to run and I would take them before and after a run to be sure I did not get a headache (so dumb and sometimes a severe headache would happen regardless when I excersise & take the T1's). I will take them for the high (not really a high anymore) if I am stressed or having anxiety. It is expensive also to have to buy them. I know the initial withdrawal is only about 3 days but takes months for the body to repair. I know Acetaminophen is EVIL for the liver.
Avatar m tn I have discovered that if I go more than 10 or 12 hours without my tramadol I begin getting a headache which progresses to nausea, upset stomach and a generally not feeling well, to the point that I have to lay down. Sometimes I even have cold sweats and chills. I have found myself taking one just to relieve those symptom I am concerned that I am dependant on the tramadol and it doesnt look like I am going to get rid of the pain, and the need, any time soon.
Avatar f tn tram has its own vises but you havent been on it that long I have no tram experience but from reading on the forum I know the withdrawal is ruff right now you got a lot going on withdrawal wise its going to be a wile b/4 you start to feel better there is no magic cure only God and time will heal did taper off the tram kinda quickly but im telling you its the methadone thats got you feeling like you been run over by a truck....
Avatar f tn I take Trazodone 150 mg for sleep. Not working. I am having withdrawal-nausea, irritability, lower GI distress, tremors, ringing in ears, headache (intermittent), hypersensitivity to sound, light, tactile. I am determined to be clonazepam-free. Was on it initially because of anx/panic attacks. Enviornmental triggers now gone. So, time to be free of med. I take Viibry 10 mg for depression. A higher dose of this med makes me hyper. I am doing ok with it.
