Meds -Ireland: I don't have an international drug interaction checker. But - Centrax = Prazepam which is a benzodiazapine. Seroquel (quetiapine) is an atypical antipsychotic. Both can be significantly sedating. So in theory - would be concerned about V'ed cognition, sedation, slowed reaction times if on both together. However if taking them at bedtime - those type of issues aren't likely to pose a problem. ...Read more
Can I still become Addicted or develop withdrawal symptoms by taking prazepam 1-2 times per week for about 1 year ?

Individual response.: Different individuals respond to different medications even if the medications belong to the same class of medications. Diazepam is a longer acting benzodiazepam but Centrax, Prazepam is shorter acting benzodiazepine . It could be also explained by the antidepressant working and you are less depressed.

There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain. A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more

If the pain it too severe for asprin you need to know what causes it. Good diagnosis is called for. See the dr. ...Read more
