Seroquel xr 50 mg

Common Questions and Answers about Seroquel xr 50 mg


Avatar f tn How many of you on the above drug have gained weight. I've just started Seroquel XR 50 mg. and have noticed an increase in appetite and have gained approximately three pounds during the past two weeks. Other than weight gain I have had absolutely no side effects. Please tell me of your experiences. I'm afraid of ballooning out as I'm already overweight and can't afford to put on more weight.
736475 tn?1281262927 The long term risks are as with any atypical antipsychotic which is the potential of long term movement disorders and diabetes. Both can be monitored for and the second prevented through regulated diets. 50 mg. is a very low dose of it though and shouldn't really that much of a problem and for its main use (which is psychosis) would be considered subclinical. One thing for sure is that if you stop taking Seroquel (or any other medication) whatever its treating will return.
Avatar m tn I would want to know from the members of this forum about how many people are using Seroquel only as a sleeping aid in doses of 25 mg and 50 mg.All suggestions and answers are welcome.
Avatar n tn well after feeling terrible for months after getting clean i tired a couple anti depressants (cymbalta and efferor xr) both made me feel sick. so im trying seroquel now, day 2 and im calm for the first time in months. im also going to try prozac with the seroquel. hoepfuly a couple months of this combo will settle my unsettled brain and i can quit them both? anyone had any experience with seroquel?
919239 tn?1269398258 They were of little benefit. Recently my MD. gave me some samples of 50 mg. of Seroquel XR. After reading the info with the medication, it says Seroquel is prescribed for bi-polar disorder. In my case I don't get the up or manic phase. I was hoping that this medication may be helpful for depression alone. Anyone who takes Seroquel that can give me some insight will be much appreciated.
999828 tn?1250126526 I got my script for suboxone today but won't be filling it until Friday. Dr. gave me sample Seroquel XR 150mg to help me sleep the next few days. My question, I have taken REGULAR Seroquel before, 50mg, and it knocked my arse out!!! I see everywhere it says to NOT crush, cut, chew the XR. I don't want to take the entire 150mg. That is too much. Will it hurt anything if I take the 150mg pill and cut it into 4 pieces and only take one of the 1/4 pieces?
Avatar f tn if you're not in a super anxious mood, for instance, if you are not getting provoked or intimidated by rock throwing colleagues in a rooming house or stuff like that, it's not a big deal to take 50 or 100 mg seroquel xr at bedtime, get a decent sleep, and hope you derive something positive out of it the next day. but if you are so worried about a repeat episode of what happened in the manh.
Avatar f tn Seroquel withdrawal can be hell. I have been on 400 mg Seroquel XR for about 4 years. Yesterday I took a dose of the generic version (I was hoping to save on the cost) and immediately, began to feel WITHDRAWAL!! I went back to the XR formulary and immediately, the WITHDRAWAL went away. Many withdrawal symptoms like SEVERE anxiety and muscle spasms, insomnia, aggitation like you can't believe, feeling like I am in free fall, etc. were completely new.
Avatar f tn My dosage was increased until currently I am taking just shy of 2000 milligrams of Seroquel XR every night. I have found that I am almost incapable of functioning at all. I am exhausted all the time and will often sleep up to 20 hours a day. I am only 24 years old and want to go to college or at least get a job, but I don't see that happening while I am on this medication. What is the safest way to take myself off of it?
Avatar f tn I am on 400 mg seroquel, I only gained 5 pounds from it but for some reason I lost it along with more weight.. But everyone is different, like said. Maybe youll get lucky and not gain any at all!! Im surprised im not diabetic from it, because it effects your pancreas which is responsible for producing a sugar fanatic and I pack that stuff away when given the chance I hope that isnt going to contribute to diabetes!!!
376940 tn?1241685607 Hello iam new here I am taking tramadol 50 mgs,neurontin 300mg,hydrocodon-acetaminoph,a pain patch of 25mcg/hr and cymbalta 90 mg. And my Dr. Wants me to take effexor xr 75mg in lu of cymbalta (the cymbalta was given to me by a shrink for pain control) but I am told that effexor xr n tramadol don't mix.
Avatar n tn The doc put me on Effexor xr. At one time when I was still on effexor xr,( 200 mg. I think) I started being really depressed and had suicidal thoughts. The doc upped my dose to 300 mg. This is the worst drug I have ever been on as far as withdrawl goes. I've been on all kinds of depression pills, never a withdrawl that bothered me. Now a different doc at the same clinic told me to drop to 200 mg. for a week. Did that. Today I have no pills and I feel like just crying all day!
Avatar n tn I'm also a neuorscience premed student..just recently went on seroquel..working up to a 550 mg dose, as the 50 mg only made me tired but didn't reduce hallucinations/delusions. also went on wellbutrin, to reduce depressive symptoms and to quit smoking, managed to quit smoking but have been having some involuntary tics and I'm worried that it may be permanent or tardive dyskinesia from sero..
Avatar n tn Neurontin to 900 mg (600 mg am and 300 mg pm); Exelon 1.5 mg am/pm. Lexapro 10 mg pm. And two or three days ago, Namenda 5 mg was added. She finally appears to be improving, but still has some psychosis and isn't ready to go home. She also has wet her bed, which has never been a problem. Her other meds are Accupril and clonidine for blood pressures; glucophage for blood sugar and Prevacid. Clonidine is new as of Dec03. In Dec, patient was driving and alert. Now facing assist. living.
Avatar n tn I was on Paxil in 2007 but became pregnant and then was switched to Effexor xr 75 mg. May 2011, I guess my body became tolerant of the drug and stopped working. My PCP increased my dose and still didnt work. He tappered me off of Effexor and started me on Zoloft. I am now taking Zoloft 100 mg for about 3 weeks already and am having panic/anxiety attacks through it. I do take a half of .25 xanax but its hard cause I get so tired at work plus I have a family to take care of.
Avatar m tn I went off of my seroquel xr 300 mg for two days , I think I went into withdrawal , flu like symptoms , cold then hot then so cold like bone chilling cold ..Is this possible?
505903 tn?1211298698 She is currently taking 400 mg Seroquel XR, and 27 mg Concerta. Of course they say she just has bi-polar tendencies, but I was wondering on how effective these meds have been for other children as its hard to find any good information on such for children. She still has issues with concentrating and controling her anger in the evenings, she is very normal socially and excels verbally, so much so people have a hard time understanding how it is she is still in Kindgrden.

Avatar f tn I'm also on 200 mg Seroquel, one in the morning and three at bedtime. This is a total of 800 mg of Seroquel. One would think this would knock you flat on your ***. Additionally, I take 20mg RItalin three times a day, and 50 mg Pristiq once in the morning. I'm noticing for one thing that when I am PMS, nothing seems to work, unless I resort to drinking a little alcohol.

Avatar n tn I just started taking 2 mg of Abilify with 150 mg of Zoloft and also 10 mg of propranolol on an as needed basis. I know propranolol Is it blood-pressure medication but is supposed to work with OCD anxiety. To me it's better than taking a benzo. I don't like pencils because her habit-forming. It is my fourth day taking the Abilify and I'm getting tired. Does that go away ?

Avatar f tn The Seroquel is what I take the 50 mgs and the 400 mg. before bed. Thought i had typed that in!! Take care!
574118 tn?1305138884 If you are finding the sedative effects of seroquel beneficial for sleep you may lose this with the XR.
Avatar n tn and 150 at nite) and seroquel 50 mg. My leg calfs have felt fat for about one year. Doctor said that i wasnt retaining water. NOw Im getting tingly and numb feelings running down from my knee to my ankle. When I sit it gets worse. I walk but it is very uncomfortable. It feels like a permanent charlie horse. What the heck? Please give me any help.
1134609 tn?1269275800 ( I'm on lithium but extreemly low dose and I need to titrate up soon, probably. I'm happy to hear you are on the right path, though. It sounds like you've found some good answers, like lithium is not so good for you and Seroquel also. Those are good things to know. Like I know I can't take lamictal and no abilify for me. I think that's what we're all in for, trial and error. Good luck!
Avatar m tn My name is Sarah. I have been diagnosed with major depressive disorder and anxiety. Been on Effexor 300 mg for years when I saw a decrease in my mood they messed with my meds trying lithium and other mood stabilizers. I ended up doing some rounds of ect treatment which got me to no longer be suicidal but it's still very difficult. They are trying to add seroquel at a low dose of 50 mg. should I try to up the does?
Avatar n tn I was just released from the hospital 5 days ago, and i still cant remember much of what happened. I was on 200 mg zoloft QD(AM), 1350 mg Eskalith QD (HS), 50 mg hydroxizine TID, 50 mcg synthriod QD (AM), 20 mg adderal xr QD (AM), & Trazadone 100mg PRN @ HS. That didnt seem like a lot to me considering over the last year i have been on many more as well... including but not limited to 100 mg seroquel, 10 mg abilify, 60 mg Geodon, 10 mg ambien, 200 mg lamictal.
