What can I take?: Although in low doses seroquel (quetiapine) and Concerta are safely taken on the same day, recommendations for what you should take need to be made by your prescribing physician. Communicate with your doctor. You may call him/her or the covering clinician.

Interaction: There is an interaction between seroquel (quetiapine) and methylphenidate (ritalin, Concerta and generic). The fda reports: dyspnea, loss of consciousness, abnormal behavior including aggression, depression, suicidal ideation, weight increase, self injurious behavior, insomnia, dizziness and more. Speak to your prescriber about this and other alternatives.
