Can seroquel the used for an anxiety attack?
Seroquel is used for anxiety attacks. There are others that can help too.
It's primary use is for augmentation of antidepressant treatment of Major Depressive Disorder, as well as treatment of Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia. Interestingly enough, however, Seroquel and Seroquel XR have anxiolytic properties. This makes these medications quite useful in treating individuals dealing with depressive episodes associated with anxiety - whether as a component of bipolar depression or major depressive disorder. However, Seroquel and Seroquel XR are not indicated for the PRIMARY treatment of anxiety disorders…
No. Celexa is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. (SSRI) It is used to treat depression and/or anxiety. Seroquel is an atypical antipsychotic used for management of manic symptoms in bipolar disorder, and is used in the treatment of schizophrenia as well. It has sedative properties although the exact mechanism of action is unknow.
celexa and seroquel are probably treated for depression and insomnia. Celexa is aused with many people with PTSD, used to help with anxiety and depression, and if your doctor feels the need to not give you ambien for whatever reason, he might proscribe trazadone or seroquel for sleep. That's what i got it for :) although i find celexa doesnt really work for me
Anxiety (uneasy, troubled mind) or panic (fear/terror) attack is the term most used in psychiatric healthcare. There is GAD which means Generalized Anxiety Disorder characterized by chronic worry (neurosis), extreme tension, nervousness, edginess and sleep problems. An anxiety attack is an acute, psychobiologic (psych = mind + bio = life + log = study + ic = pertaining to) reaction manifested by intense anxiety and panic.
This is simply not true. Many antidepressants can actually INCREASE anxiety, though your body may vary. Buspar is something worth giving a shot, as well as Benadryl. There are also the old and trusted Klonipin, Xanax, and Ativan, though those have a risk of addiction--particularly Xanax. Most antidepressants help with anxiety. Seroquel is strong stuff.
I take Seroquel and Klonopin together. My Psychiatrist prescribed the Seroquel for sleep, and he prescribed the Klonopin for anxiety / panic. Taken together, it can be a bit more sedating, but there are no risks as far as interactions go. I would be careful with drinking too much alcohol while on both Klonopin and Seroquel, however.
No Seroquel (quetiapine) is classified as an atypical antipsychotic (or an atypical neuroleptic). Similar drugs include Risperdal (risperidone), Zyprexa (olanzapine), Geodon (ziprasidone), and Abilify (aripiprazole). Seroquel Seroquel is FDA approved for (a) schizophrenia, (b) bipolar disorder, and it was recently approved for (c) adjunctive treatment of major depressive disorder (when added to an antidepressant). Xanax (alprazolam) is classified as a benzodiazepine, a large group of drugs which include Ativan (lorazepam), Valium (diazepam), Rivotril/Klonopin (clonazepam), and…
Yes. Trazodone® and Seroquel® are different classes of medications entirely, but both can be used at low doses as a sleep aid in people with bipolar disorder. Trazodone is an older, weak antidepressant with strong sedating side-effects, used almost exclusively as a sleep aid. It has no mood stabilizing properties. Seroquel is an antipsychotic medication that also has sedating side-effects, and is often used as a mood stabilizer, anti-anxiety agent, or sleep aid for people…
Yes, I have been prescribed this combination before and they work well together. Prozac deals more with the depression and anxiety, while the wellbutrin will keep you feeling motivated and upbeat, and the seroquel will keep you feeling calm and stable.If you have bipolar like symptoms, serious depression, and high anxiety, this combination has the potential to help you.
My doctor used to (just 2 months ago, for several years) prescribe Seroquel (quetiapine) with xanax and ativan. So, I think the answer is "yes". I was also in a research study involving Seroquel and Depakote (valproic acid) and they allowed me to take xanax occasionally for anxiety. This is all for the diagnosis of bi-polar disorder.
Some symptoms of an anxiety attack include: sudden overwhelming panic, chest pain or heart beating irregularly, feeling of losing control, hyperventilation, trouble breathing, shaking or trembling, nausea, and hot flashes or chills. These symptoms normally come on suddenly and without warning, and can be caused by something obvious, or without any real trigger at all.
I have a serious case of ocd and have been using prozac and seroquel for almost a year now. It is slowly starting to work, I was suicidal when I first went to the hospital and 9 months later I am half way across the country attending university. I am told that the combination is used in severe cases of ocd, anxiety and depression
