methadone is a very strong drug. why did you decide to go on methadone?
what dose are you at? if you are not feeling well, i would tell them to taper you down. you have only been on it for 1 month that is good. you should beable to come off it. after 3 weeks they say it has its claws in you. it is very long and hard to get off. i probably would try getting off it very quickly.
this is a list of the possible side effects:
side effects of methadone
lowered sex drive
inability to perform sexually
missed menstrual periods
loss of appetite
how long have been taking the seroquel??
here are the side effects of seroquel:
Constipation, drowsiness, upset stomach, tiredness, weight gain, blurred vision, or dry mouth may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor promptly.
Dizziness or lightheadedness may occur, especially when you first start or increase your dose of this drug. To reduce the risk of dizziness and lightheadedness, get up slowly when rising from a sitting or lying position.
Tell your doctor right away if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: restlessness/constant need to move, shakiness (tremor), signs of infection (such as fever, persistent sore throat), mental/mood changes (such as increased anxiety, depression, thoughts of suicide), difficulty swallowing.
Get medical help right away if any of these rare but serious side effects occur: fainting, fast/irregular heartbeat, seizure, severe dizziness
