Seroquel Withdrawl

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello,

I am a 31yr old male 6'2 180lbs. I have been on seroquel for 5 months only 2.7mg I take a 25mg tab and cut it into quarters from there I crush the quarters into powder then divide the powder in half and the a little bit off that half. I am weaning down to around 1.5mg and expirencing bad withdrawls symptoms. I lost my job due to the foggy brain i had while on the medication. I am on no other medications.

My question is how bad will the withdrawl symptoms be and how long will they last?

Also,if i switch to low dose celexa will I still experience withdrawl from seroquel?

    I guess I'm just surprised that such a small amount of Seroquel would cause you such problems!?! Could it be something else, perhaps?

    I'm not saying that I know anything about medication, but I'm finding it hard to believe that 2.7 mg of Seroquel would course you withdrawal problems. Just sayin. I'm no doctor!

    For a small amount you shouldn’t experience any withdrawal from it. But I know everyone is different I agree with others is talk to ur doctor if  we’re prescribed it don’t lean off till ur doctor says so they will lower ur doses if u do it ur self you can get wit drawl but low amount I don’t see how you would get withdrawal I’m on 125mg if I stopped I’ll go through it.  But again talk to ur doctor maybe seroquel isn’t for you

    These are all questions you should be asking a psychiatrist, not a bunch of people who take the meds that are prescribed by the psychiatrist!

    I don't understand what you don't understand about this!

    I am off the Seroquel. My decision to NOT listen to the doctor and take 50mg was the best decision ive ever made. When taking ssris or anti-psychs micro dose them. I got on blood pressure meds and its day 9 off Seroquel. Ringing in my ears a little agitation but I feel 99% better. From now on I will never seek medical help when emotionally crazy I will just workout.

    Feeling much better, clear head no irritability, fatigue is down 80%. You just have to make it the first 4 days after that its easy. If I were you I would cold turkey for 2 days then start back on 50mg stay there for a month cut meds for 48 hrs start back on 25mg. If you can make it to 12.5 mg you're basically off. Get blood pressure meds from your doctor and promethazine. I used these on top of marijuana and it was easy as pie to come off. I lost my job due to seroquel so I had to cold turkey it. You'll see horror stories about coming off don't be scared you'll do it. I'm here if you need help in anyway.
