My migraine doctor has me taking Seroquel so my bad migraines don't bother me as much. However, I'm doing everything I can not to take them because they're keeping me from losing weight. My regular GP, refuses to write a presecription for more than 10mg of Ambien. I need 20mg to get to sleep. Why can't they seem to understand that I can be up for days at a time and not be tired? Is it because they've never experienced it themselves so it isn't a big deal to them? Is this what the rest of my life is going to be?

Hello veronicalynn123. Scrolling and found your post. Over a year late but, it happens. Better late than never. :-0) I was on seroquel, as a mood stabilizer. I know all about the weight gain. I've replaced it with Remeron and its the same issue. I am surprised that your gp won't script you the 20mg of Ambien. I was on ambien fora year and only stopped it because my body built up a high tolerance to it. Dalmane I was on some years ago. I stopped it for much the same reasons. Tryed restoril and well, that also worked but short term only. I can't answer your question about the Multiple Sclerosis. I've my own opinion, a few thoughts but I'm no doctor. I'd try another gp, to get that one to write a new perscription for the 20mg of Ambien. Hopefully, if you ever do read this, it will all have been resolved and that you're doing well. The very best to you.
