Drug Safety

What if you overdose on seroquel and Klonopin?

Get yourself to the hospital.

Right away.

In my worse-off days, I overdosed on both of these medications. Upon arriving at the hospital they rushed me into trauma to monitor my blood pressure as it was dangerously low. I ended up needing to stay overnight hooked up to an IV of (...something I can't remember, the night was a bit of a blur) for the entire night.

I could have died if I had waited.




Can seroquel help with methadone withdraws?

It will help some simply because it will calm you down and also help you sleep which is usually pretty hard to do when withdrawing from anything. But I would recommend suboxone instead which is actually partially an opiate so it will help fill the void in your opiod recepters which is the reason you would be withdrawing in the first place hope this helped!!


Can you take Lexapro together with Seroquel?

Yes, without any harm.

Depression and Bipolar Disorder

Are any of the anti depressants narcotics?

Antidepressants are not narcotics. Legally a "narcotic" is either an opioid like heroin or morphine or it is cocaine/crack. Medically the term "narcotic" only refers to opioid analgesics. Most doctors and scientists do not like using the word narcotic because most people do not understand exactly what a narcotic is. An antidepressant is not a narcotic nor is it a drug of abuse. Antidepressants are not controlled substances and drug seeking behaviour has not been scene in people taking antidepressants.

It can be argued that amphetamines in particular might be considered narcotics as they are occasionally used in people with severe refractory depression. However technically amphetamines are not narcotics.


Can Seroquel cause night sweats?

I have been taking Seroquel for depression for about three weeks and I have to say that I wake up at least twice during the night soaked in sweat. It only started happening since the dose was increased to from 50mg and tapered up to 300mg. I haven't been to My followup apt yet to question my concern...

Sun Tanning

Can you use tanning beds while on seroquel?


I tanned while taking Serequel and had some darkening of the skin on my upper lip.So I would not recommend it

Mental Health

Do pathological liars ever admit they are liars?

Do Pathological Liars Admit They Lie?Chronic liars are most commonly found among those who have Antisocial Personality Disorder, although some liars also suffer from factitious conditions like Munchhausen's Disorder or Munchhausen's by Proxy and of course, there are disorders that by their nature promote lying -- such as substance abusers who have to lie to spouses or employers in order to support their habit. Narcissists are also fond of lying.

The most serious of the chronic liars are the psychopaths, who form the most severe 10% (roughly) of those with Antisocial Personality Disorder and yes, they will happily acknowledge that they lie, in some circumstances. They will rarely acknowledge a lie if doing so might cause them discomfort -- for example, if they lie to police about not having committed some crime, they will generally not back down from this position and they will often not back away from a face-saving or grandiose lie.

Those liars who are psychopaths or sociopaths are above all charming, glib and usually to some extent flirtatious. If admitting a lie or two is in the interest of holding your attention, they're happy to do so. Other than an accurate (and controversial) diagnosis of actual mythomania (fantastic story telling as a fixed, non-situational, objectively internal character trait), only delusions can cause an individual to tell a falsehood that they believe to be true. By definition, delusions are *fixed* false beliefs, that do not comport with any religious or cultural tradition, and they do not change when someone points out their falsity. They often don't even change with heavy medication. So if someone is telling you, "I didn't realize I just told a lie; I'm a pathological liar," excuse yourself politely, and go make a new friend. There is not going to be a happy ending.

About Pathological liars knowing whether they lie or not, it's actually yes and no. He doesn't know that he has lied until AFTER he has lied (sometimes). He sometimes does not realise he has lied until someone has brought it to his attention. When he finally realises he has lied (on his own), he will NOT admit it, because there is no explanation and he feels somewhat embarrassed. When caught he will sometimes deny it simply because he does not want people to view him as a liar (from fear and shame).

Finally, sometimes he will admit it in certain situations. It's not their conscious mind at work, but rather their self-centred, defensive, insecure, low self esteem subconscious.

Pathological liars know themselves they are lying sometimes and feel the pain. Othertimes, they don't know ,so their relatives and friends get hurt. So, pathological liars do not always admit they are liars,especially when they are hurting others and protecting themselves.

In fact, common liar also do not admit they are lying always. The difference between normal liars and pathological liars are the pain caused by and frequency of lying. Think of our own inner state when our liars are exposed. We will feel awkward but not panic. We would not be hurt so deep, but they will change their other normal mind into an abnormal state and do something that will really hurt other people's feelings. They do not admit they are liars, they go on play the role they thought they are telling the truth. When they are alone, they will think about their suffering and weep in a corner. They can feel the pain double of ours.


What would Seroquel be classified as?

Seroquel contains a substance called quetiapine. This belongs to a group of medicines called antipsychotics.

Mental Health

Are you a pathological liar if you tell a lot of lies for no reason?

Don't fall into the trap of trying to label yourself or someone else and treating mental health issues like physical disease. If you lie and that behavior is pathological (causes problems in your life or in the lives of those you care for) you need to address that issue. If someone has been taught by their family to lie from childhood on, it is very likely that they will grow up to be a "pathological liar" and a "compulsive liar" because they simply don't value truth and don't get the connecton between their lies and problems they create.

A compulsive liar is probably also "pathological". It's hard to imagine a complusive liar that wouldn't cause problems for themselves or someone else. The distinction isn't clear and neither term has a clear, distinct diagnosis.

If you suspect you are one, then you're most likely not.

Compulsive, may be a more apt description for you.

A 'pathological liar' tends to believe his or her lies; lies to make himself look better or superior, or to draw attention to himself. It's got a lot to do with self-esteem, I believe. Often narcissists are 'pathological liars.'

A compulsive liar just feels 'compelled' to lie. Just like a compulsive eater, can't control their eating habits.

It's still a disorder and can cause you no end of trouble. But therapy or even just a support group can help. If you recognize that your behavior is not normal, then you are already on the right track.

I just ended an 8 yr relationship with someone who is a pathological liar .

From the beginning , he had cheated on his wife, and of course it was all her fault. He had married her only because it was the thing to do at the time.

This was the beginning of the lies, I was kept away from his family , because I was the one who he left his wife for. It was lies about why I could not see his children , or come over when he had the kids. Working late , all the time , or constantly working on the house, He never could complete a project without it taking forever, because he lied about actually doing it.

I found out , when his fiancee called me, his girlfriend of 8 yrs and asked who I was. She had been with him a year and a half. No wonder he was always busy or working late, or he also said his daughter needed therapy, she was deeply disturbed, I can imagine.

When he got caught that day, he asked me how we could do this to him. I honestly think he believed all the lies he had told both of us. His fiancee called me later that night and said she had dumped him. I told her she could have him, now i know why my friends, family and co workers all thought he was a liar. He did not want to get to know any of them. I believe she is still with him , because his lies are so convincing , I,m sure she will find out in the end , as I and his wife did , I feel sorry for her. But I know he is not going to change or get the help he needs, because he believes what he is saying is true.

My brother lies about the silliest things-constantly. He usually does it so as to not hurt someones feelings. Even tho if he told the truth, he would save himself sooo much trouble. He really means well. So now that I have a friend that constantly lies to me about everything under the sun, I try to keep a little patience-Hoping she is the same as my brother. Trying to not hurt my feelings or embarrass herself. I now read between the lines of what anyone tells me. I expect everyone to be like him and to an extent-most people do lie-a lot, for no reason. It's just a part of their life. I try so hard not to lie seeing it all the time that I have been told that I am hurtfully truthful. I don't know which is better. . . to lie or not to lie.

You wont be a pathological liar for that matter. But if you are talking about someone else, then yeah sure. People tend to lie a lot and little do they realize. But sometimes they DO realize and DO know that they are lying, you will hear them say "My lies don't harm anyone, really" or something to tht effect. While a liar's lies may not harm 'anyone' they do no good either, and it hurts to know the truth later on simply because it had been delayed for NO good reason in the victim's mind.

Conditions and Diseases

Can hyperglycemia lead to kidney failure?

Yes because of its ability to cause low blood pressure


Actually low blood pressure has nothing to do with it. High blood sugar damages the network of fine blood vessels found in the kidneys . It also causes the body to eliminate excess sugar through

urine, so the kidneys can become fatigued. Long periods of high blood sugar can lead to kidney damage that in turn may cause high blood pressure.


Will Seroquel decrease your appetite?

I used to be 190 before I took Seroquel and now I weigh a whooping 240, seroquel is definitly the cause... depression doesn't help either.


Can seroquel and Klonopin be taken together?

It is OK to take these two medications together. In fact it is commonly prescribed together.

Mental Health

Can pathological liars be cured?

To me, the word "cure" implies an illness that can be treated, and so we could call it "cured." I don't know what the shrinks would say, but in my experience, this is primarily a character issue. People who lie even when there's no reason to, when there is nothing to protect or gain, are just flat deficient in character. They lie because they are liars, and choose to be. The psychologists desk reference, or whatever they currently call the list of actual mental disorders, keeps growing. Eventually the sum total of human behavior will be a form of mental illness at this rate. Chronic liars, in my experience, are also manipulators, so I guess there is a root reason for their lying. Whatever the cause of it is, and whatever the shrinks might say about it, in my experience this behavior is usually a lifetime thing.

AnswerCompulsive liars do have a problem and it usually stems from low self esteem. They feel they are not up to par with their peers so often lie or embellish on events in their lives to make themselves look more important. I agree with the other poster on much of what they said and this is certainly something for the psychology books.

I believe if the person knows they are a compulsive liar (many seldom can admit this to themselves) and they work with a good psychologist there is a possibility of learning not to lie. We all tell "little white lies" at different times in our lives, but most of us don't lie to hurt others. If the compulsive liar does not seek treatment or doesn't want it, then it's best to move on because you'll only get hurt. Trust is a large issue in relationships whether it's loyalty to family, friends or relationships with a partner.


sometimes compulsive liars do have low self esteem proublems but that is not always the case. sometimes compulsive liars lie because of a tramatic event that has occured in their past such as childhood abuse. if a person does realise that they are a compulsive liar it is good to fin help as soon as possibe because they will have a better chance of overcomming the disease. when someone is a compulsive liar they do NOT lie by choice. it can be caused by a defect when the child is developing in the mothers womb. they can develop up to 20% to much white brain matter witch can cause some mental illnesses such as compulsive lieing. but don't confuse compalsive lieing with pathological lieing. they are verry different and treated in several different ways. basicly, a pathological liar or compalsive liar doesent lie by choice, its not something they can control. although on rare occations it has been proven to form out of habit that starts at a very young often because the child was not taught the consiquences of lieing or a parent displaied theese type of behaviors.


What is the Street value of seroquel 500?

about 8 to 10 bucks max. unless of course you sling em out to jitterbug that don't know what they're doing. be careful consuming that much at one time if you aren't used to the medication. 500mgs will mess you up something fierce, if , you can stay awake long enough to enjoy it.

Does Seroquel cause Flushing and Hot Flashes?

I can't say that it *causes* flushing and/or hot flashes. I *can* say that the detailed prescribing information (found on by clicking on "SEROQUEL prescribing information"), on page 38 under the Cardiovascular System, notes that vasodilatation is is an infrequent side effect.

I am not a doctor or nurse, I am, however, taking Seroquel. I have a problem with flushing, even while not on medication. I don't know if it's just me imagining things, but it seems like the flushing has been exaggerated since taking the Seroquel.

I'd also like to know if anyone has noticed flushing, or an increase in flushing, while taking Seroquel.

I had really bad hot flashes and chills while taking seroquel. I had a bunch of tests ran on me, the doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong. But 5 days after stopping Seroquel, the hot flashes stopped.


Will 5 gr of lortab and 175 mg of seroquel taken together make you high?

You won't get high, but you definitely will become drowsy. At the most you are loopy to others, but you'll honestly just want to go to bed. Those pills aren't meant for recreation, and most doctor's will not recommend both pills at once, there is the risk of death.

Please be careful!
