Been taking 300mg of Seroquel for almost 2 years (for severe anxiety and insomnia). Want to wean off Seroquel and not sure how to go about it. Been prescribed 7.5mg of Zopiclone toreduse the effects of insomnia while weaning off seroquel. any one know or had bad experiences using these drugs together?

I don't see interactions between the two. They are (of course) both sedating, so the two together will be a double whammy.

You were prescribed zopiclone by someone. Did that person not talk to you about how to taper off the quetiapine? That's worrisome.

Some people report better luck in terms of the insomnia secondary to Seroquel discontinuation with antihistamines (Benadryl OTC or cyproheptadine / hydroxyzine by prescription), as much of the sleep effect of quetiapine seems to be due to its antihistamine effects.

But that's pure anecdote, so take it with a big heaping cup of salr.
