if i was prescribed seroquel xr in addition to my 225mg of Effexor, i'm curious if i actually don't need the meds what side effects if any may occur??? Just looking at it from perspective of all kids put on ridalin that never needed it.
I have been on both meds, the Seroquel is a antipsychotic and changes the chemicals in the brain and is mainly used for mania so i have heard!
The Effexor which i am on is an antidepressant which is in the group of drugs called SSNRIs. This med is mainly used when someone is mixed state rapid cycler like me but have to be careful cause it can cause depression as well
hope this helps some
I am on effexor and my doctor also wanted to put me on seroquel xr. Well I refused. I read about this drug and I could not beleive the doctor wanted to put me on this. I think doctors should tell people how the drugs will effect you and what the side effects can do to you. I am in my last phase of getting off effexor and I am so happy about it. I am going to a different doctor now, because the one that put me on the effexor just kept raising the dosage and I felt terrable. I am down from 225mg a day to 37.5 every other day. It was hell when I was first weening off. I am feeling better now. Do reserch on any drug and see if you really want or need to take it.
