Ive been on seroquel for about a week 1/2. On nightly for sleep. Im hearing alot of bad stories about people quitting. Should I taper half the dose? I wanna quit before I become dependent on this bad drug?
Hi you don't mention what dose you are taking? I presume, as it is for sleep, you are on a low dose of 25 - 50mg? Yes, halving the dose for a week is a good idea (assuming you are taking immediate release... you mustn't split extended release tablets). It might be best to consult your doctor about tapering as people react differently to withdrawing from Seroquel depending on how sensitive they are to the medication...
