Seroquel and acute renal failure

Two years ago my nurse practioner placed me on 25mg of Seroquel for insomnia, to be taken only at bedtime. I was on this medication for approximately 4mos. when I went into sudden acute renal failure - preceeded by some of the symptoms related to seretonin syndrome. (i.e. lack of coordination, in and out of conciousness, hallucinations)  This all transpired within about a 24-36hr. period.  All of which placed me in ICU, intebated and on life support for 3 days. My question is...have any of these "syptoms (symptoms)"/ reactions been reported as a result of taking Seroquel?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Rarely nocturia, polyuria and acute kidney failure have been reported with Seroquel usage. Besides which it is known to cause hypotension and congestive heart failure, which could lead to an acute episode of renal failure.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
