Doctor insights on:
Seroquel Vs Ambien
Were both Rx-ed?: If the doctor that prescribed each knew about the other then they thought it was ok. Each is not without its risks and if you can get by with just one then that might be best, but they sometimes are prescribed together.
Quetiapine (brand seroquel) is classified as an atypical antipsychotic medication. It is fda approved to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and as an adjunct with antidepressants in the treatment of major depressive disorder. Serious side effects include tardive dyskinesia, neuroleptic malignant syndrome, and metabolic syndrome with weight gain, risk of ...Read more
Not recommended: Seroquel (quetiapine) is an anti-psychotic medication used for serious psychiatric disorders. It is not recommended as a sleeping aid. Talk to your pcp about what may be causing your insomnia and to find alternative meds if necessary. See: https://sleepfoundation. Org/insomnia/content/what-causes-insomnia I hope this helps. Best wishes.
I have insomnia and tried numerous medications. I am now taking 100mg of seroquel with 10 mg of Ambien (zolpidem) and it is working great. Any problems w/this.
The main question: Is why you have insomnia in the first place. What evaluations have you had for this? There are many causes -- and although the seroquel and Ambien (zolpidem) may knock you out, this does not get to the root cause of your problem. Also, Ambien (zolpidem) is habit-forming, and in time you'll need more medication for the same effect. You might consider seeing a sleep medicine physician for evaluation.
I'm looking for medication that can make me fall asleep fast seroquel did it but I gained a lot of weight I take Ambien (zolpidem) 10 mg I need to fall asleep?

I take ambien 10 and temazipam and 200mg seroquel xr and still can't sleep, will taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) pm help?
NO: You are having either drug resistance to medication or an improbable case of chronic insomnia. I suggest a sleep study to rule out obstructive sleep apnea. Ask about Rozerem (ramelteon) and Belsomra, new, non- addictive forms of sleeping medication. Ambien and temazepam are both quite sedating and potentially addictive. Speak to you prescribing physician.
Seroquel and luvox stopped working after 14 years, I can't sleep with ambien (zolpidem). I'm screwed, and scared I'm gonna die.
Not sure why fearful: If you're having trouble sleeping at night. I will tell you that a LARGE part of the reason is the fact that you've been on medications for 14 years that now are no longer working for that problem. I'd've been more scared of being ON THOSE medications for so long! You should be evaluated for insomnia & have the root cause identified & addressed not just become unnecessarily dependent on more pills
Started ambien (zolpidem) 10 mg and 50 mg Seroquel two days ago for bad insomnia. Woke up with bad headaches two days in a row. Should I be concerned?
I took Seroquel 50 mg for a few months last year for insomnia. Started swelling stopped it. Taking it again along w ambien 10 mg. Been off and on ambien for long time. Now I am havingside effects of bad dizziness w combo after being on for two weeks?
My mother is taking seroquel...ambien and xanax (alprazolam). 200mg seroquel and 120 pills of 1mg xanax (alprazolam) not sure of the dosage of ambien. Is this okay?
Too many sedatives: Without knowing the exact regimen my best comment is to note that care must be taken when using multiple medications with sedative effects. I assume the Ambien is for sleep and the Xanax (alprazolam) is for anxiety. I would argue both are short-term interventions and she will be best served if alternative approaches are explored. The only thing I can say with certainty is that she should NOT drink alcohol!
What are drug interactions for taking the following medication together: Seroquel, Ambien, Propranolol, lamictal, klonipin, and adderrall?
Can I take Seroquel indefinitely for chronic primary insomnia? 12.5 mg has stopped working after 18 days. Should I increase it? Ambien (zolpidem) no longer works for me. Neither does Trazodone.
Insomnia: Have you been evaluated by a sleep specialist? If not, you should. Seroquel (quetiapine) is not usually effective when used this way. The sleep specialist can order medications for you if advisable and these may be temporary but will delve into your habits in depth, order appropriate tests such as looking for restless leg syndrome and advise a regimen for you specifically.See 2 more doctor answers
I was on ambien for chronic insomnia for five years. Loved it. Stopped working. Is there any med that is just as good? A hypnotic Preferably? Lunesta (eszopiclone) doesn't work for me nor trazodone any longer. Wondering about seroquel. Thank you.
Insomnia: Ambien (zolpidem) and similar sleeping meds are not intended for long-term use because of dependence and tolerance. Insomnia is a symptom with many possible causes. Try to find cause for insomnia. Also look at sleep hygiene and lifestyle factors. Try Melatonin meantime and read: https://sleepfoundation. Org/insomnia/content/treatment for more info.

Fly LAX to Moscow then Moscow to Vienna 16 hours extreme anxiety doctor prescribed ambien. I hear this is just for sleep maybe Xanax (alprazolam)? Seroquel? Help
What sedatives work best Ambien cr, sonata, (zaleplon) lunesta, rozerem or silenor? I take restoril but doesn't work. I can't sleep unless I take an extra seroquel.
Don't get dependent: Taking more and more sleep meds is a dangerous path. Figure out why you can't sleep; see your primary care md first. Eliminate caffeine; don't exercise too late in the evening; stay away from your cell phone and other bright screens just before going to bed. Don't go to bed until you're sleepy. May need referral to sleep lab. Try to get off all sleep meds. Good luck!

Healthier Suggestion: How about we figure out why a 23-year-old woman has insomnia that is so pervasive she needs to be tried on so many different sleeping medications that don't seem to work? Don't you agree that finding the root cause would be the better solution? Be happy to guide you as a neurologist. Write to me @ www. Healthtap. Com/drsaghafi

15 weeks pregnant, no ob gyn visits, has hypertension and has been taking xanex, percocet, seroqel, ambein and suboxon the entire pregnancy. Outcomes?
HIgh risk pregnancy: With these illnesses and medications, she has a high-risk pregnancy. She needs a good team to see her through: maternal-fetal medicine physician, psychiatrist, and therapist. She won't be able to withdraw from the opiates while pregnant, but will need a substance abuse program after delivery. Social services needs to be involved concerning parenting issues. Baby @ risk but could still be well.See 2 more doctor answers
