Dandelion3: Quitting while new


Recommended Posts

New here. I had a sudden illness/trauma and was given seroquel and gabapentin for sleep. I was told to use as needed. I’ve been taking Seroquel, anywhere from 12.5-25 mg at night for ten weeks and gabapentin 300 mg at night for seven weeks. I’m still not sleeping great even with these, but I am realizing I never should have taken them and I want off. I have no idea how to do this. Can I just stop the seroquel? How much can I drop at a time? Can I taper both at the same time? I am super anxious about all this.

Welcome, @Dandelion3


It is unusual to be directed to take Seroquel and gabapentin "as needed". If you have been taking either of these drugs every day for more than a few weeks, you are likely to become physiologically adapted to them. You will need to taper off.


What times o'clock do you take each of these drugs? What effects do they have on you?
