seroquel how to stop taking

I am taking 200 to 300 mg of Seroquel at night to sleep. I want to stop taking - maybe go back to ambien. Any suggestions?

Hi Julie,

I think that you should ask your doctor about not taking Seroquel anymore.
Your doctor needs to ween you off the Seroquel before you start taking another drug.

That's what I would do. I hope that this post is helpful to you.

Hi Julie

Be really careful coming off seroquel. I tried to stop cold turkey (I thought I would die!). I was taking 600mg. You need to speak to your psychiatrist and taper slowly.

Good luck!
