Default Seroquel (seroquel)


Must be YMMV. Seroquel gave me really bad reactions and Ambien works like a charm. c

Default Seroquel (psychiatric)


I am taking 25 mg a night, for about 6 weeks. That's the lowest dose you
can take and you'll be just fine. It's probably for a short term since
it's for PMDD. Seroquel is actually an antipsychotic (which scares
everyone so they just call it something to help you to sleep; not to be
cynical, but my pdoc has prescribed two things to "help me sleep" an
antianxiety drug known as Klonopin and Seroquel.) So in reality, it is a
mood stabilizer, it's just a specific kind of mood stabilizer, generally
one to help you slow down and think clearly (used to work for a
psychiatric med journal).

Sweet dreams

Default Seroquel (irritable bowel)


Another thing Seroquel does, for me anyway, is stops the 'racing
thoughts.' That's worth a million bucks. (It also completely stopped my
irritable bowel syndrome).

I put on 20lbs. with Seroquel. I'd say it's second in line to Zyprexa for
weight gain. Abilify and Geodon are supposed to be weight neutral.

Default Seroquel (wellbutrin)


Yep, that's why meds are so YMMV! I gained weight on both Zyprexa and
Seroquel but have lost all that I gained while taking Wellbutrin. I think
I've heard of maybe two or three people (out of 30, maybe) who didn't gain
weight on S and Z.
