Is anyone familiar with Seroquel? 
 
My doctor just prescribed it for sleeping.  I took 25 mg Tuesday night but that was too strong, so I cut the pill in half and took 12.5 mg last night.  Much better.  Only now I'm experiencing ringing in my ears which I have never ever had, my muscles twitchy, and arms feel heavy.  Not sure if reading about the side effects caused it (I am that neurotic).  I know I need to call my doctor, but wanted to see if my side effects were somewhat normal...
 
I also take Effexor XR (150mg daily) and Xanax XR (2mg daily).

Ah!

You are not neurotic, just sensible! I do not have experience with this med, but if you have any concerns do chat with your doc about them. Stay away from the side effects page!! It's the bane of my existence..Lovely to have you here at HW. Keep us updated okay?

Thanks! I think I'll ask him about Ambien or something else. This stuff is too wierd. It's making me feel like I'm going to have a panic attack. Ugh.
Let's see what the doctor says.

Kate,

Switching meds sounds like a great idea, do you have an appt with your doc? You don't need a panic attack on top of this smhair

Hugs,

Thanks for the support!

Just made it home. Feel better now. I was a little afraid I was going to freak out at work and embarrass myself.
