those antidepressants are crazy hard to get off of.  I managed to get off of effexor, but it was really bad for about 3 weeks.  The only thing that helped me was to read about what the withdrawal symptoms entail so I could reassure myself that I wasn't going nuts.  I dont know about seraquil, but coming off effexor made me very dizzy and i had brain zaps.  Maybe you can also ask your question on the depression forum.  Hang in there, it really does end.

Seraquil is not an anti depressant... It is a very strong Mood Stablizer used by most of us who are Bi-Polar...with mixed states of mania and manic eposoids. Depending on the dosing.... cold detox can bring on seizures. Contact your medicial Dr, tell them what you have done, and what you should do now....I beg you to seek medicial help with this.

Seroquel is NOT an antidepressant, an atypical antipsychotic med and is NOT appropriate to be used as an insomnia aid, especially when it wasn't Rx'd to you.

You need to see your doctor.  Depending on the dose you were taking, you may be in some danger.  

This is why you NEVER take meds off other people.  Especially with a history of addiction, you're looking to self medicate.  Sometimes doing that will lead to very bad things.  You need to inform your friend that she shouldn't be giving away her pills.  It's very dangerous, not to mention illegal.

I am glad you posted about Seroquel because I was prescribed it while I was in a crisis center and I am almost out of my month script and didn't realize the dangers of discontinuing using.  I don't have an appointment to see my doctor until mid September and have no additional refills.  Is there a certain range of dosage that can be stopped without the dangers of having a seizure? I was put on it to help with nightmares and night tremors associated with PTSD and really didn't want to have to continue taking. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

None than any of us could tell you.......Go to the emergency room and see a doctor on call and see if you can get enough to get by...You will probably be treated as as an addict looking for a fix so make sure you have your script and your Dr's name to back up your story....Or call the Dr. and let them know what you have done by running out and not making another appointment...They will deal with you better if you are totally truthful....

I was prescribed Seroquel for insomia. It is one of the side effects of the drug. I didn't like the other side effect which is having an enormous appetite. I stopped using Seroquel and didn't have any fall out. I think I was on and off them for around 3 weeks. My dose never went above 200mg.
