Hi, Cynthia! You are the first person I have seen here other than myself who takes seroquel. I take it in conjunction with klonopin, tramadol, zoloft, and vistiril. I suspect that your seroquel has been added to other meds you take? This is not ordinarily the first drug a doctor will try for psychotic problems. I, too have bad memory, and I know it is from these drugs, after having been on them plenty long enough. I have developed a habit of writing EVERYTHING down, no matter how insignificant, so I never have to worry about not remembering something. Personally, I would rather write stuff down than not take the meds and be miserable every day. NOTE: NEVER DISCONTINUE ANY DRUG WITHOUT YOUR DOCTOR'S SUPERVISION!! Doing so can cause major withdrawals and horrible side effects. I have a link that tells you all about seroquel. I do not reccomend you read it, as it will only scare you off it. I did not even look closely at the page. But I will leave it up to you. Blessings - Blu
I take seroquel specifically and only for sleep. However, I haven't been able to find another sleep aid that works better than seroquel. This is my dilemma.
Are you taking anything else? Seroquel at such a low dose probably shouldn't be causing those side effects. Have you tried trazodone or ambien or rozerem?
I have multiple sclerosis, depression, and a sleep problem. My ms meds[baclofen/tizanidine] and 300mg of seroquel gave me a memory loss big-time!!!. The ER cut all my meds in half[dc'd the tizan]. I never want to go that high again. I couldn't remember my grandchildren!!! I did get withdrawals from it.[Was jumpy/agitated/anxious]for several days. I'm on 150mg now. My dreams at night are vivid, and it's like being in a reality show!
Has your memory returned to normal?
I HAD MEMOREY LOSS AND SEVERE WEIGHT GAIN. I did not get my memory back that was loss but as soon as i stopped taking it i had no memory loss and loss all the weight i had gained by taking Seruquel and then some. I advise anyone do not take this medication it is really bad for you.I am not a doctor it is my personal oppion. I know because i know what it took from my life alot and i cannot get that back.
