What exactly would happen to someone who took an anti-psychotic pill... Even though they're not psychotic ?
More specifically, a 50mg Quetiapine Fumarate
Asked by Terina Chermak 6 months ago.
I am Bi-polar, and familiar with the drug. Seroquel is a similar drug. I do not recommend you take this drug. It is habit forming, and produces serious side effects. Though 50mg a reasonably low dose. You will experience dry mouth, constipation, nausea, extreme fatigue, and an extremely high possible chance of feeling suicidal. This drug is intended to bring the mood, and the brain activity to a lethargic state, to reduce threat to other people around an individual taking the medications from being harmed physically. As any drug, the affects are different in everyone. Seek a professional if you need help. Psychotic meds, can get you a buzz sure. But is it worth killing yourself because you had a psychotic break down BECAUSE of the drug, when you were never psychotic to begin with? Answered by Emeline Bettner 6 months ago.

What is the difference of Quetiapine and Quetiapine Fumarate?
Asked by Nola Kascak 6 months ago.
They are equivalent. See this Ingredients description from the site below: WHAT SEROQUEL LOOKS LIKE Seroquel tablets are film-coated. All tablets except 300 mg are embossed with "Q" and the strength on one side, and are plain on the other side. Seroquel 300 mg tablets are embossed with "Q" on one side and "300" on the other. Tablet shape and colouring is as follows: 25 mg: round peach 100 mg: round yellow 200 mg: round white 300 mg: capsule-shaped white. Seroquel 25 mg, 200 mg and 300 mg come in packs of 60 tablets. Seroquel 100 mg comes in packs of 90 tablets. INGREDIENTS Each tablet contains quetiapine fumarate as the active ingredient equivalent to quetiapine 25 mg, 100 mg, 200 mg or 300 mg.

She already has therapy and already on meds. So please just answer the question, thanks. Answered by Jefferson Gromoll 6 months ago.
This isn't something you should be asking the internet, you should be telling her parents, her doctor, or even the police (who can get her to the hospital if she's threatened to hurt herself so they can watch her). Depending on her sensitivity, it may be a small handful of pills or most of the bottle, but if she wants to die from OD, then she'll keep taking them until it happens. As a side note, if she is on medication like antidepressants, she needs to talk to her doctor either now or after this is resolved as many antidepressants have big warnings that they may increase the risk of suicidal thoughts/attempts... it might be that the antidepressant is just making it worse and it needs to be changed or stopped, but the main thing is that you need to get your friend help ASAP. Good luck and I hope I helped! Answered by Ernest Hagins 6 months ago.

There isn't yet. however, with brand name drugs psychiatrist's get loaded with samples.. and if you tell your dr. how its becoming rediculously expensive to pay for it you could always ask them if they could help. My Dr. does that with me!!!:) And if worst case, NO, or only a minimal period of time you could ask about switching your medications. Currently risperidal (risparadone) is the only atypical antipsycotic being sold as a generic. And you are taking a very, very low dose 1200 is the highest FDA approved but I have met people on 1500 in the ward. Now may I ask what your using it for? Because seroquel can pretty much be prescibed for anything from schizophernia to sleep dissorders:) and there are many many more cost efficent, options and not to mention seroquel unfortunatly has a horrid weight gain side effect:( Answered by Andree Hansley 6 months ago.

Quetiapine Fumarate is the generic name for Seraquel. Seraquel is a brand name. They are identical. Talk to your doctor about not being able to tell the difference between reality and false reality. Answered by Davina Shamonsky 6 months ago.

Hey guys, so today i got prescribed quetiapine fumarate which is an anti psychotic drug for my anxiety around food My doctor prescribed me 25 mg twice a day and when i had it i was really drowsy, and when i mean drowsy i mean i couldnt even drive the car properly. He said that i wouldnt experience any of the side effects of the drug at such a small dose but yet i was drowsy and really irritable after i took it. Is this going to go away after a few days of taking the medication or is it going to stay for the duration of the time that i take them? Answered by Clarence Hagerty 6 months ago.
This is normal for quetiapine, especially in the beginning. Different bodies metabolise drugs differently, so 25mg may affect you in this way. So it is possible and in your case 100% related. Speak to your doctor about perhaps prescribing the dose at night when you don't need to drive or work. When I started taking quetiapine I was literally falling asleep at work and it was terrible. This lasted for about a month and then it started getting better. A bit too late since my work asked me not to come back because of my grogginess and sleeping on duty. Give your body some time to adjust to the medication. This can take up to a month. But speak to the doctor about the times that the pills are prescribed. Answered by Randa Schuiling 6 months ago.
Okay, I'm not going to tell you to go the spiritual route because fact is, is that that doesn't work for a lot of people. the other poster is nuts. I believe in spirituality being able to heal, but you aren't asking about any of that so I'll get to YOUR point. 25mg is a fairly low dose, yes, but any dose can give you side-effects, no matter how small it is. I had drowsyness with this medication too and just to say from personal experience, the side-effects didn't go away for me. I ended up having to switch because I was sleeping 14 hrs a day. I was also on a higher dose though. If I were you, I'd talk to your doctor about switching. Being drowsy when in a vehicle isn't good and I assume you don't have someone who can chaperone you everywhere you need to go. If it's interrupting your daily life, it's worth switching, in my opinion. Answered by Sam Bosque 6 months ago.
Rebecca is right about the dangers of Tardive Dyskinesia that can result from taking these kinds of meds. The main danger is that when you get TD, once you quit taking the drugs, the shaking does not go away, and you can be stuck with it forever. Most doctors know about this, so you *really* want to contact whoever you are seeing now, rather than letting this go on for too long. It may not be TD afterall, but it's not the kind of risk you want to mess around with. Answered by Olympia Castanio 6 months ago.
No its probably going to go away after a few days....And yeah its advisable not to drive during the course of anti-psychotic medication..... Answered by Nikita Yapp 6 months ago.
I found that at low doses like that yes my body did adjust to it & now when I take anything up to 300mg I don't get that horrid wshed out feeling. If it keeps happening to you though then talk to your dr about it. Answered by Penelope Applegate 6 months ago.

You would be better off doing a Google search. It doesn't look like there are too many pharmacists hanging around on Yahoo. Answered by Gisela Tosi 6 months ago.
I am taking 100mg of it every night for sleep. Its been about 3 weeks now. I get the munchies from time to time but I are not able to tell if its the seroquel or considering the fact that I give up smoking not to lengthy in the past. You will be nice as long as you have strength of mind and make healthful alternatives. If you happen to have got to binge make it something healthful...

1) Seroquel itself is a weak acid (alcohol group). In the fumarate form there is an additional proton attached to a nitrogen with a pKa of 6.8 2) 3) Seroquel's solubility depends on pH, weakly. It is well soluble in neutral water, with a slight increase in acidic solutions and a decrease in basic solutions. It is weakly soluble in lipid phases. 4) Seroquel is believed to be an antagonist at D2, D1, alpha1, alpha2, 5HT1a and 2. D2 and the 5HT receptors are believed to be the most important in managing schizophrenic symptoms 5) The molecular target is various modulatory GPCRs in the brain, notably D2 and 5HT. 6) 95% of seroquel is metabolized to n-desalkyl-quetiapine by Cytochrome 3A4 (with 2C19 and 2D6 contributing tiny tiny amounts) OR inactivasted by sulfoxidation. n-desalkyl quetiapine is active, and inactivated by sulfoxidation. Metabolites inactivated by sulfoxidation are eliminated renally (approx 75%). 7)5% of seroquel is eliminated intact. 75% as metabolites in the urine, 20% as metabolites in the feces. Wow. That's a few nitty gritty questions. Hope I hit it all. Answered by Kimber Whisenhunt 6 months ago.

I read that quetiapine is the generic brand for serequel.is this true and if not is there a generic out for it
Asked by Moises Plenskofski 6 months ago.
Seroquel is quetiapine fumarate. It is an anti-psychotic and there is no generic available for it. It is not addictive, however a person can have severe withdrawal from it as the brain re-adjusts which lasts for weeks, but that is the case with all anti-psychotics. Answered by Trent Finerty 6 months ago.
serequel is generic for Zoloft, I know since I take it myself. Quetiapine doesn't sound familiar to me, however if it isn't listed on your bottle you can ask either your doctor or you pharmacist. Anita P. Answered by Betty Albiston 6 months ago.
