So, with all medications like this, you should not just decide to stop taking it on your own. If you speak to your doctor, they may have a suggestion to alleviate the side effects with dosage adjustments, etc. They can also guide you with cessation of the medicine and be in the loop in case things don't go well. As an atypical antipsychotic, tapering is often recommended. Stopping cold turkey can obviously result in very uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. So, my recommendation is to speak to your doctor.
I'm wonfdering how long withdrawals last for taking less the 2 months at 600-700mg my psych droctor is a straight ******* so asking him will be a waste of time
I don't take this as an antipsychotic just from sleep if one can pleases tell how long withdrawals will last will be greatly appreciated I've only taken 600-700mg for less than two months
When I went cold Turkey off 1000mg of Seroquel 2 days later my mouth began moving or twitching & it wouldn't stop! So I went back to seroquel but previously had gone cold Turkey off it & it took like 2-3 weeks for the withdrawal to stop. I'm weaning off of it slowly now...went from 1200mg & down to 800 mg right now. It's way harder to sleep the more I go down.
I'm not taking seroquel for bipolar just for insomnia but found out I'm gaba deficient due to drug use in the past but I really want to know how long these withdrawals will last I only took seroquel 600mg for about 40 days any experiences or a timeline someone can give me it's been about 10 days off the serouqel
I'm so sorry that you were prescribed this for insomnia. That should have never happened. This is an antipsychotic and should only be prescribed for such illness. 700mg is an incredibly high dose to just stop taking it at, even though you've only been taking it for a month. Unfortunately, most doctors don't know the withdrawal effects or how long it lasts because they weren't taught that and that wasn't studied, so it's really hard to find articles online about it. With Seroquel, the withdrawal effects lasts for an insanely long time and feel like they'll never end. To make the withdrawal symptoms more bearable, I suggest going back on it and taking a smaller dose and slowly tapering off. I'm currently tapering off of Seroquel myself and it is a lving hell. I hope you feel better soon.
