Hello Chaysemartino. No. You should get your prescription renewed, because not doing so, you'll likely go through some fairly rough withdrawals. Best to taper off from the seroquel, its the safest and most comfortable of ways. Talk to your doctor, she/he will beable to help. Best of wishes,pledge
Hi, since you have added more info' i can see that tapering is not going to be an option for you. I understand about you not having the funds to cover the treatment, but i do think you need to consult a doctor to explain the situation you are in. As Pledge has said, you will suffer physical withdraws by stopping Seroquel abruptly, and also this can have a bad effect on your mental state of mind, as you would expect. I would be worried that you are stopping this medication with no medical assistance or advise. Yes the doctor might not be too happy about you self medicating but you must just be honest, and explain the situation you were/are in. Do some research also on potential withdrawal symptoms so you can be prepared. It may be possible to obtain a different anti-psychotic to replace the Seroquel that you can afford? I hope it turns out OK!
I would like to add that you can look up your mental health clinic and they take people without insurance for a very low cost. If you need the medication for mental health reasons that is the best place to start. But you are going to go through withdrawals and you should never ever take medication perscribed for someone else.
