Called docs office no results of MRI test yet, and explained that i am shakey and jumpy. I asked her to talk to the doc but she looked at my file and asked if i was taking the 50mgs of serequeol i said no she asked why said don;t know i feel ok on 25mgs but anyway maybe i think it;s the sereqoul she said try the 50mgs and see what happens. If it is the serequeol i will should be able to tell if i increase to 50mg? i will have to stop taking it and try something else. take care i will let u know what's happens i still might go to the hospital and see what they can do. Bye for now Twiggy2 My hands shake, when the phone rings i jump etc my heart jumps for a few seconds and then it's kinda ok.

I'm on 400 mg of seroquel. I take it at night because it makes me sleepy. You should be able to tell a difference between the 25 mg and 50 mg. I'm not sure what you're question is. Do you not want to take it? Do you only want to take 25 mg or are you saying it's not working? I would talk to your doctor before you do anything. Don't rely on the medical assistant in the office for medical advise. Still take it through your doctor.

I hope things ease up for you.

The doc said it was ok to take 50mgs i just thought that 25 was enough but i should be following his intructions a least until the results of the tests come back. Anyway it will take a while for the 50mgs to work and be patient. I see him on the 6th of Feb and my then we should know what direction to take med wise. Thanks talk to ya later Twiggy2

If anything, taking more seroquel should slow you down.  I only take 100mg and can only take it a night because it puts me out like a light.  Good luck.

The question was that i thought that the meds were making me jumpy i researched a bit on serequeol and there are some side effects that mimick anxiety type symptoms, i thought by upping the dose to 50mg would tell me wether or not it was the serequol that was making me feel weird or not. so far i am ok but i still am very shakey and i hurt all over, sorry for blabbing. I does heko me well to sleep not sure if it helps with very much else. I am waiting for the test results to come in so i can get on the proper meds if there is such. Thanks talk to ya later Twiggy2

Having some trouble, ive been a bit emotional lately mostly cause of some stress but the seroquel doesn;t seem to be doing what it's suppose to, here is the problem i drink coffee but have trying to cut back on it before bed, i take all of my meds around the same time every night except when i work late then i take them when im done work, always try to maintain going to bed at the same time as well yet still i am up at 1 or 2 in the morning, sometimes in a sweat, then i get out of bed warm up some coffee have a smoke take a warm bath and klonopin and go back to sleep, my dreams are very vivid and real like and sometimes i still feel tired during the day so i take a nap. Which i am trying very hard not to do anymore either. As i know that is probably part of the problem waking in the night. I still have tremors and not sure what i should do, My pysch doc is away on vacation an i don;t see him until april 3rd and i have some back and knee pain that also wakes me time to time, Sorry for rambling but i need advice and not sure who to ask. Thanks for anyone who replies Twiggy2.

Could you try decaff coffee , I drink that & decaff tea aswell now. A warm milk before bed especially with grated nutmeg and cinnamon) can help as can a calcium suppliment half an hour before you go to bed. B vitamins are calming and anti-depressant , so things like porridge oats , brown rice and anything that is wholegrain are good. Chamomile tea is relaxing. Lettuce contains a mild opiate so maybe try to include some in your evening meal or eat a few leaves before bed. Could you try having the warm bath before you go to bed , as getting out of a warm bath into a cooler bedroom tells the body it is time to sleep (I suppose it mimicks the sun setting , getting cooler).

Try to avoid caffiene (inc. cola , chocolate , drinking chocolate etc...) and sugar which will give you a high. Are your dreams ever about things you have seen on TV , read in the paper etc.... it's best to avoid emotional/scary things in the evening. You say sometimes you work late , is your job very stressful?

Unfortunately , even though we smoke to calm ourselves down , it is actually a stimulant and can aggravate anxiety and stress.

I'm sorry I don't know anything about seroquel.

No need to apologise , and you are not rambling. I hope you get this sorted soon.

Take care ,

With taking 600mg of Seroquel at night time, please stop drinking the coffee it makes it worse regardless of decaf or not.  If taking the 50mg makes you shaking and not feel right, I would consult your phybysician to see if they can slowly increase your dosage.  It has taken me 8 weeks to get me where I am today.  Also by adding the Klonopin, I no longer have the night terrors and my mind slows down.  May be an idea

I have slowly worked my way to 100mgs of sereqoul on advice from my pysch doc and yet i still and awake a 20 am or around that. Pain in the Butt, right now i am on steady 125mgs of ZOLOFT, 100mgs of sereqoul and klonopin 0.5mgs twicw daily. I feel about the same nothing really different, thw thoughts of hurting someone though has crossed my mind and that to me is scary as i would never hurt anyone i donlt know why those thoughts are even in my brain. Can someone help me with that one. Anway 3am took and klono and going to soak in the tub and try to go back to sleep thanks Twiggy2

Twiggy,, it could be the thought of hurting someone. is a hallucination . which is  common with Bi-polars....I say this because you would never hurt anyone. so the brain maybe triggering these thoughts( manic).
 
I was hallucinating last Oct. and thoughts came to me that were so foreign to the way I think, that this sounds like it...... but you have to know yourself...

Hello all, i am now up to 150mgs of Seroquel and still 125mg Zoloft and the klono, it;s been so so, my mind is still going round and round somedays, i think that maybe switching to a different mood stablizer would be better, lithium maybe? Also i have developed a rash along the back of my neck and shoulders good this be a reaction to the seroquel well gonna go take a power nap, i've doing alot of sleeping too it seems to help when my mind is in a spiral. Take care talk to ya later Twiggy2.

Even at 150mg of sereqoul does not help me sleep, i have been cutting back on the caffeine, adding milk to my coffee. Having weird dreams, i wake 3-4 times nightly then i sleep during the day cause i still feel tired. Severe headaches somedays and still have crying spells, i think i need to contact my doc and get it straigtened around Still having flashbacks and hate it so much this also makes me upset talk to ya all later Twiggy2. Maybe the Zoloft isn;t so good either since it's suppose to help with PTSD it;s not working for me thanks for listening to my venting if someone has any suggestion i would loe to hear from u.

Hi there Twiggy2 , I'm sorry you're going through this cr4p at the moment ((((HUGS))))

Are you having counselling , it could help with the flashbacks , and might ease some other things that you might be unconsciously stressing about.

I deffinitely think you should go back to the docs as this regime (sp?) is just not working for you.

Take care hun ,
