Im also taking wellbutrin sr 100mg and zoloft 50mg but break it in half 25 mg. Just curious am Ion a good route? I take them major depression and anxiety disorder?
Hi, Nando! Seroquel is usually taken at bedtime because it makes many people very tired and groggy. I wouldn't divide your dose unless your doctor advises it. The same with your other medications, I mean as far as taking it exactly as your doctor prescribed it for you.
They're all good medications and should help you a lot.
Best wishes to you! WCV
If your dr. Prescribed to take both together, then most definitely follow that. I also agree that it should be taken at night, as it will make you sleepy. Do NOT stop taking it without speaking to your doctor first though. I had very good luck in the past using Seroquel as my sleep aid.
Good luck to you! : )
Nando95... I have dealt with so many mental issues over the years. Close friend shot herself last year and one had in front of me before I could grab the gun. Have lost a daughter but thankful for my son. His mother passed away as did the mother of what would had been my daughter. I understand the mood swings. In adolecance I was prone to ANY self destructive actions. Whether it was hard core drugs, fighting, skipping town and hitching for a while etc. My Psych where I live told me I was not bi-polar and most of my mania was due to un-treated adult ADHD. I began with Vyvanse 60 mg daily (3 20 mg capsules #90/30 Days). After that it helped but my panic and anxiety and moods were still out of order. So now I take Adderall IR CII CSA , 30 MG Tab. #45/30 days (45 mg daily), Xanax for panic (0.5 mg qid #120 / 30 days) CIV CSA, (2 mg daily as needed) as well as a miricle drug in my book for nerve pain, epilepsy and mood stabilization.
I began trying it in my teens (girlfriend had rx's for various pscych meds *know not safe* and Neurontin or "Gabapentin 600 mg #90) was one. She gave it to me due to my parents not letting me go to a doctor for my psychological problems. It had gotten to the point I was institutionalized various times, went to jail a few times, was out of control but not on medication for my ailments. The combo of the Neurontin (I take only 1,200 daily 2 600 mg tablets) along with a benzodiazepine to have if needed (Klonopin, Xanax, Valium, Ativan, Librum etc. examples) at low doses throughout the day with the Adderall XR or IR.The IR to me are best because you can separarte the tablets into either 15 mg or 7.5 mg pieces. I honestly try to stay on holistic an herbal approaches the best to my abillity but sometimes and often Rx medications (even controlled CII and CIV drugs) need to be given. Key is finding a doctor (psychiatrist / counselor too) and make visits. My life has turned around. I work for a news station in creative services *due to my BFA in art* and enjoy my (somewhat high stress job) and make decent money have insurance through BC/BS 401-k etc. Find a good psych. do not know where you are but you could find one I am sure. They have to listen to you. Not saying my meds will work for you. Saying need a Psychiatrist (not a reg. M.D. or D.O.) to Rx your medications. Stay hopeful Life is WORTH LIVING! LISTEN TO PHISH AND SOME GRATEFUL DEAD AND CHILL MAN!!! In other words. Good luck.
