Myrdin : Seeking help/advice on how to start re-instalment of Seroquel after 8 weeks of withdrawal


Recommended Posts


Hello,

I ended my Seroquel XR tapering 8 weeks ago.

Now i know i did it way to fast; i took 4 months to get from 200mg a day( i started with 4 x Seroquel XR 50mg) to zero and i was on seroquel xr for 13 years.
My doctor suggested to do it in 2,5 months, but i know i can react very sensitive to medicine change, so i figured i do it over a bit longer period.. so i did it in 4 months..

for the last 8 weeks i am suffering very bad withdrawal;
dizziness, nausea, vomiting, Diarrhoea, headache, bellyache, hot/cold sensations, strange rattling sound/feeling in my brain, sleeplessness/ very interrupted short sleep, anxious, itchy skin on my arms and hands etc etc etc
symptoms changed/shifted a bit during the 8 weeks btw; at the moment its Diarrhoea, belly ache, nausea, headache/migraine, sleeplessness/ very interrupted short sleep, anxiousness and since 2 weeks severe temperature changes; feeling very hot till the extend it feels like my brain is boiling and soon after i get very cold to the core, very hard shivering.

btw my doctor is an idiot and tells me after max 2 weeks there are no more withdrawal.. so i am on my own with this now..

i searched a lot on internet for info and found some info from people saying i maybe should start again with a low dose or Seroquel again
Also i talked with Mark Dunn from Quora and he also suggested maybe I try to start with a low dose of Seroquel again.( he is also the one that pointed me to the surviving depressants website )

This withdrawal is very disabling.. not so say very hard to endure and i really dont want to go back on the meds, so so far i fight/endure it the best i can, but last weeks with the 'boiling brain feeling' on top of al the other symptoms.. i just feel like i cant take much more..
So i thought it over and maybe i just have to except it is what it is and i should try to do a re-instalment on a low dose to see what happens, in hope it will make life a bit more bearable again. ( even though i really think Seroquel is a very bad bad drug..)
I tried searching this group and forum for info on to go about, but due to my current situation and how over-sensitive it made me especially for ' negative stories'  i stopped looking for info for the last 13 days and just hoped for the 'best'..
But today i think i had my breaking point.. i asked this Mark Dunn about how to do an re-instalment but he suggested i better ask a moderator here in this group, so here i am.

So now i really want to know more about that and i hope you can help me.
How could i go about re-instalment after being 8 weeks off already of the drugs?
AND
what could happen if i do a reinstatement? how long would it take to feel any difference, good or bad?

btw i have access now to Seroquel 25mg ( the non extended release version) and i also ordered a scale that can measure mg's so if i cut the pills i can make sure the amount i take will be sort of constant.

Also, since Seroquel, one dose, does not last 24 hours, i wondered if no matter what dose i start back on, if it would be better to take it 2 or 3 or 4 times a day?

I really hope you can help me with this info.
so i hope to find out here how to start and with how many mg's, and how many times a day.
also how long it would take before i notice any effect.
and maybe info about what things to be aware of while doing so; like are there symptoms that can occur that suggest taking the drugs again was a bad idea and they will only make my current state worse instead of better.
( like i said, i am on my own with this.. my doctor is of no help..)

Greets, 

Myrdin

question added later:
I am in this withdrawal now for 8 weeks and the ' symptoms' are slightly shifted/ changed over weeks, so i figure my ' brain'' is working hard to make changes/get better.. ( it still is living hell and i feel i cannot take this no more.. BUT maybe taking drugs again wil NOT make it better soon..)
is the fact that withdrawal symptoms already changed a bit, is it a good sign?!
and does it mean maybe i should NOT do an re-instalment, and should just allow my body and brain to ' handle' this on their own?

Another thought i just had:
I really dont want to take drugs that i dont ' need' anymore, BUT i am 55 years old right now:
IF i will be sick for years from withdrawal.. i just had the thought ' maybe i should just go back on seroquel XR 200 mg a day for the rest of my life if that would mean i dont be sick for years from withdrawal..?'
Maybe an odd question..
BUT IF i would start taking the full amount of drugs again, would that ( in a few weeks) 'overrule' the withdrawal and put my brain back on the track it was before tapering to zero?

Hello Myrdin,

 

Welcome to SA. Thank you for summarizing your drug history in your signature.

 

What was your last dosage of Seroquel before you went to zero?

Some people can handle returning to their full dose but for others it can lead to a phenomena known as kindling which is why we recommend reinstating a small dosage to see if it helps ease withdrawal symptoms. You can read more about kindling at Hypersensitivity and Kindling.

 

We also have info about reinstatement at Reinstatement: About reinstating and stabilizing to reduce withdrawal symptoms

 

Thanks,

Firefly, thank u for answering!

quote; 'What was your last dosage of Seroquel before you went to zero?' 

answer:  i started in december 2023 with 200 mg Seroquel XR a day and i tapered in 4 steps: every time i took 50mg less
So, my final dose was 50mg then to zero ( since i was on the XR version with coating and could not split them in half..)

Back then i thought i already tapered it slow... NOW i know i should have done it way more slow in small steps of 10% of the last amount i took over a LONG period of time... but yeah.. damage is done now :(

Also as i wrote in my list of drug use over the years;
at the same time as i started tapering seroquel xr, i started tapering Clomipramine but that last drug i tapered more fast; over a period of 2,5 months from dec. 2023 to febr. 2024 from 5 x 25mg to zero

then i stopped Topiramate in febr. 2024 cause i was taking it to reduce a side effect of the clomipramine ( it helped with not remembering the very vivid horrible dreams i always had from clomipramine during the day) and since i did no longer had those horrible dreams there was no longer use for the topiramate ( that is an anti epileptic drug btw).
it was only 1 little pil so i quitted that in one step, just from 1 pill to zero. (nobody warned me that stop taking that little pill could cause 4 weeks of migraine after stopping btw..)

after the clomipramine stopped i had no withdrawal btw ( or maybe some part of the 4 weeks migraine was due to it i am thinking now..) BUT my pharmacist told me after i stopped the topiramate that a lot of people get migraines from withdrawal and it could last up to 4 weeks. and since it was sort of exactly 4 weeks, i always thought the migraine was just from that drug...

SO now looking back, i thought i was doing o.k after quitting clomipramine and topiramate and since i was doing o.k, the migraines were gone, it was a safe time to start tapering the Seroquel XR more further.

and again, looking back i should have NEVER started tapering al those drugs at the same time.. but as said earlier, my doctor is not a good one i guess..
damage is done now.. so i try to not look back to much, it only makes me sad and angry.. and i want to try and be as positive as possible, cause all negative will only cause more anxiety i feel.


some extra info;
last 8 weeks especially, i try to eat as healthy as possible, lots of vegetables, mostly drink water and herb teas that should help with nausea, i take pro-biotics, vitamins and some other things like magnesium etc in hope they help my body and brain for better recovery.

Just in case someone reads this and recognizes some withdrawal, specially the ' hot flushes with brain boil feelings' > i noticed sitting in the shower, water running over the body helps reducing the terrible feel of the ' brain boil', also putting ' cold packs' on my head helps a bit < just a tip ;)
also, normally i dont eat white bread since it does not bring any good to the body, BUT now with 8 weeks of Diarrhoea my body ' askes' for white bread, and at some days it does help make stool a bit more ' thick'  


Some positive thoughts :
i gained 70 pounds due to Seroquel XR and clomipramine, and now with 8 weeks of nausea and Diarrhoea i lost 23 pounds already, so that's a nice side effect ;) 
(even though it makes my energy-level zero, but alas)

Also since  29 years i suffer from chronic Lyme disease from a tick-byte and the Lyme is, among other things, making my knee joints ache so bad i was not able to walk for the last 3 years, but now with losing weight, my knees hurt a bit less, so that's a plus :)

 i just read the article.

and i am wondering now;
i still take Lorazepam like every other day just to give myself a few hours of ' rest' specially when i slept so little for days, i take 1 or 2 pils of lorazepam 1mg in hope i will get a bit better sleep and will not wake up every 2,3 hours in anxiety or with hot flush brain boil-feeling.
But after reading about ' kindling' i wonder if taking lorazepam in my current situation could make things worse in general?!
Like will it f*ck up my delicate brain balance even more...
i really hope not, cause being able to take the lorazepam every now and then feels like it is the one thing that makes i can endure this horrible withdrawal episode a bit better, cause not been able to sleep on top of al the other things i suffer from would be totaly-TOTALY disabling..

How long have you been taking Lorazepam every other day?

You could try re-instating at 2.5mg to see if that helps ease some of your withdrawal symptoms.

how many times a day do u think i should take the 2,5 mg?
Should i split in in 2 x 1,25mg a day?
cause when i was taking the last 1x 50m seroquel XR before i went to zero ( i took that pill at before bedtime) every afternoon i got a sort of withdrawal feeling> a sort of very strange sort of ' static' feeling in my brain


also how long would it take before i notice any effect?
And what things to be aware of while doing the reinstatement? like are there symptoms that can occur that suggest taking the drugs again was a bad idea and they will only make my current state worse instead of better?

Inconsistent dosing could be contributing to instability. You may want to consider dosing appropriately and tapering later on.

I would dose twice a day, 12 hours apart, and see if that helps with the afternoon feelings.

This varies person to person but it can take several weeks for some to notice positive effects of a reinstatement.

If you notice an increase in symptoms after taking your doses then you might be experiencing an adverse reaction.

Update;
I am in withdrawal now for 10 weeks and since 4 weeks i have these insane hot and cold flushes throughout the day and night.
the cold is like cold to my core, with teeth chattering and the hot feels like my brain is boiling.
this states last for like about 10 minutes and always start with HOT then followed by a cold, it changes very rapid; the hot ' comes' in a tidal wave, i rip of my wool sweater turn on a fan that blows full trottle on me and i lay icepacks on my head and chest, then after like 5 to 10 minutes al the sudden i get cold to the core, so wool sweater on again and 2 blankets on top of me, waiting it out till my body stops shivering and teeth stop chattering. then if i am lucky a short while of feeling sort of stable and then the circus starts again.
the ' brain boil' feels often very scary, tears roll down my cheeks as i try to endure and try to do ' positive' mantras like saying ' all is well' ' all will be o.k'  .
A lot of my other WD symptoms got a bit better though over last 10 weeks; for example since 2 weeks my stool went from constant Diarrhoea to normal, so thats fantastic.
also i dont vomit since weeks now, its just a constant sort of nausea now. so that gives me a hopeful feeling i might be doing ' better' overall...

i do have this sort of constant  fuzzy 'thick feeling' slumbering headache constant since the hot and cold started happening, i wonder if anyone also had those, since i did not read about them in al the reactions in this ' hot cold tread' ? ( painkillers do not effect this headache in any way so far btw)

Also, right now i am in doubt a bit to do a reinstatement, since my symptoms changes over the weeks already and some really got better like i wrote above.
so i am still thinking it over since i really dislike the idea of going back on meds again, also since i have to taper from them eventually and read i can get WD from that again..
So maybe i will just try to endure my current state and hope for it to slowly fade out on its own... fingers crossed

Also i decided to stop taking Lorazepam since i really dont want to take it daily to get a ' constant' of it in my body cause i know how addictive that stuff is to the body, and i was in bad WD from Oxazepam years back so dont wanna go through that again in top of my current state
