Klaein Posted July 2, 2010 Share Posted July 2, 2010 First of all Hello everybody this is my first topic post. Glad to be here! My pdoc today just prescribed me seroquel (25mg). He said to start with 1/2 a pill for a couple weeks and then go up to a whole 25mg. He says it should help my combination of agitated type anxiety,paranoia and to help me sleep better. I was previously on 1mg risperidone which did help the OCD somewhat but did next to nothing for my anxiety or paranoia. Also, it seems to mess with my hormones. The reason I ask about it's dangers is because I'm taking it with other meds. I am currently taking tramadol for my headaches. Could possibly the seroquel induce a serotonin syndrome effect? I tried ONE dose of seroquel back in 2004. I think my old doctor was stupid because he prescribed 50mg twice daily which is ridiculous (as a STARTING dose BTW). Just ONE 50mg dose made my brain feel very constricted and I had to take a 24 hour nap. I fired him of course... It also concerns me is that I'm on a high dose of clonazepam (4mg/day). I have heard that mixing seroquel with downers (like clonazepam) can cause respiratory depression. Well I guess that addresses my main concerns. I would love to hear your experiences with this med! What were the pros and cons? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
