Should I consider Stopping Seroquel


Recommended Posts

I was prescribed seroquel 25 - 100mgs nightly strictly to aid in sleep. My Dx is depression/anxiety with 2 recent hospitalizations for this. My biggest question is, is the seroquel at this dose doing anything  other than acting as a sleep aid or is it possibly affection my condition positively. I dont know?  Iam also on Effexor/Wellbutrin.  I have recently stopped taking it for 3 nights as an experiment, with grave sleep deprevation the result. I wonder if I should ask Pdoc for just a sleep aid or stay with the Seroquel. Any suggestions for a good sleep med that will not leave me drowsy the next day.

Don't stop the Seroquel without talking to your pdoc first!

Stopping any medication without tappering down is not a good idea. The Seroquel may be helping you or it may not be but stopping it cold at any dose will effect you. I just had to stop Seroquel cold, under pdoc's orders, and it was not fun.
