Please help! Quetiapine (seroquel)

Posted , 5 users are following.

I really need to get off seroquel, it's ruining my mental health and my life. I take them for mood swings and for sleep, I'm on 200mg. There's so many bad things that accompany taking this pill and i feel like it's doing more harm then good. I'm also on lamictal for awful mood swings and I feel like if anything bad were to happen that those pills are my back up so I'm not completely mental. I was wondering if other people have gone off seroquel and if you have how did it go? Please please answer I'm desperate, I can't stay on this drug for another minute.

    I just got off it slowly. Was on 200 mg cut down to 100 mg for a week then 50 mg for a week then 25 mg for a week. Stopped last night no problems so far. Terrible medicine glad to be off of it.
