I'm switching back to effexor and i am currently on 50 mg of seroquel and 20 of lexapro. Pdr told me how to discontinue lexapro but wants me to continue on seroquel to help me sleep. I don't want to be on two meds. If all seroquel is doing is helpn me sleep then I would prefer to use natural remedies. Thoughts please?
There are several possibilites as far as natural help for sleep such as melatonin. To taper off the seroquel 50mg. you can split the pills in half unless it is the XR type formula. Take 25 mgs for a week and then you should be ok to stop. I wouldn't try weaning from both the Lexapro and Seroquel at the same time, but do one at a time and see how you do.
Hi nenag im mickey from chicago and i agree with laurie, i was on seroquel for a while but i slowly weaned myself off by taking less day by day, i would break my pills into halfs and then try and skip a day and take half the next day and i did this for about a week or two and i than broke my half into quarters and took a quarter every other day untill i could skip a couple days then if i need it i would break the quarter of the pill and break that in half and did this for about another week and then got to the point to where i no longer needed it and had very few side affects and started myself on a all natural remedie that i found that worked much better for me and was much more healthy.. Good luck my friend.. Mickey...
