Could you take benedryl with klonopin and seroquel (quetiapine)?

Caution -sedation: The more medications the greater the concern about drug-drug interactions :how your body "treats" the medicine;how one drug affects the effectiveness of another; &additive side effects.For example, Seroquel,Klonopin & Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can each be sedating & all three together may be too much.

Klonopin 4mg seroquel (quetiapine) 100 mg will i overdose?

Klonopin 4mg seroquel (quetiapine) 100 mg will i overdose?

Tolerating?: Everyone has a different tolerance to medications. Both of the above can be very sedating. For those with a high tolerance sedation is not an issue. Unless you have liver or kidney disease these doses are not excessive. Again ck with your dr about making adjustments if you are too sedated and do not drive or operate dangerous machinery. ...Read more

Yes, there are tests: Comprehensive evaluations for sleep disorders are possible with psychiatrists and sleep medicine specialists. Often these can be the same physician, as many are double-boarded. Sleep studies can be arranged in sleep labs, as needed. ...Read more

Is it safe to take melatonin, valerian with my klonopin and seroquel (quetiapine)?

Is it safe to take melatonin, valerian with my klonopin and seroquel (quetiapine)?

Sedatives ...: Possibly safe. Whenever I'm asked about "natural" supplements (unless they're professional grade brands - such as Thorne) keep in mind that they're not usually tested for purity or potency. That said, melatonin can amplify the effects of quetiapine or clonazepam, but to what extent is unknown. Definitely discuss all of your OTC & Rx meds with your doctor - perhaps a dose change might help. G'Luck! ...Read more

Dr just put me on Remeron. Is it good for sleep? Also on klonopin and seroquel (quetiapine). Is this ok?

Dr just put me on Remeron. Is it good for sleep? Also on klonopin and seroquel (quetiapine). Is this ok?

Promotes sleep: Remeron (mirtazapine) often induces sedation and sleep. So do Klonopin (clonazepam) and Seroquel (quetiapine). Best to discuss with your prescriber what is the primary issue being treated: primary insomnia? depression? anxiety? sleep apnea? Also: is the plan to use these meds short-term or long-term? Those meds can be useful in a variety of clinical contexts but with side effect potential. ...Read more

Been all sleep meds but they stop working pretty soon, tried trazadone worked at 400mg night, now seroquel (quetiapine) 100 and trazadone 25mg klonopin .5 safe?

Been all sleep meds but they stop working pretty soon, tried trazadone worked at 400mg night, now seroquel (quetiapine) 100 and trazadone 25mg klonopin .5 safe?

Careful: Sleep medications may not be all they are cracked up to be. They often decrease deep sleep n3/rem and give you light (often nonrestorative sleep). If you are not seeing sleep specialist especially on all those medications, you should. These medications are all sedatives but none really fda approved for sleep. ...Read more

Is it ok to take Dalmane or Restoril (temazepam) with klonopin and seroquel? The Remeron just gives me too much appetite.

Talk to your doctor : It might be better to increase the dose of your Seroquel. I would avoid adding another benzodiazepine such as Dalmane or Restoril (temazepam). You are already taking Klonopin (a benzodiazepine). It's best to avoid polypharmacy and the risk of addiction. Also, you could develop rebound insomnia which means you can't sleep even though you are on medication for sleep. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

I've gained 60 lbs on Trazadone, Seroquel (quetiapine) and Klonopin. I want to try green coffee bean extract due to being tired all day. Is it safe? I'm desperate

I've gained 60 lbs on Trazadone, Seroquel (quetiapine) and Klonopin. I want to try green coffee bean extract due to being tired all day. Is it safe?  I'm desperate

Med weight gain: Agree with others skeptical of green coffee bean extract for weight loss. Seroquel (quetiapine) is most likely cause for weight gain. Review with prescribing doctor to consider tapering and trying alternative at lowest dose possible less likely to cause weight gain. Weight gain from Seroquel (quetiapine) is reversible. Meantime, eat healthy, avoid junk food, limit alcohol and exercise as much as possible. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My insomnia is caused by mania at night, which started at age 3 wasn't treated till adult, trazadone, klonopin, seroquel (quetiapine) 4 sleep dreams vivid, safe?

My insomnia is caused by mania at night, which started at age 3 wasn't treated till adult, trazadone, klonopin, seroquel (quetiapine) 4 sleep dreams  vivid, safe?

Maybe: If your insomnia is the product of a mania from bipolar disorder, then the medication combination you list is appropriate. However, if you are still having vivid dreams on that combination you need to talk to your doctor about tweaking it. In my experience, vivid dreams can be either a side effect of trazodone or from continued mood problem (i.e. Mania). ...Read more

Which is a better choice if you are psychiatric meds.bystolic (nebivolol) or atenenol.on seroquel(sleep)..tegretol..lamictal...klonopin .luvox...vytoryn?

Which is a better choice if you are psychiatric meds.bystolic (nebivolol) or atenenol.on seroquel(sleep)..tegretol..lamictal...klonopin .luvox...vytoryn?

Atenolol: 1st choice: With complex metabolic profiles of your psych meds, atenolol presents lesser risk of drug interactions. The interaction of carbamazepine and fluvoxamine make it unpredictable whether there would be sufficient 2D6 inhibition by fluvoxamine to inhibit bystolic (nebivolol) metabolism which is dependent on fluvoxamine-carbamazeine 1A2 interactions. There are genetic tests for these risks. ...Read more
