I take 0.5mg. of zanax three times a day, 75mg. of sertraline

Customer Question

I take 0.5mg. of zanax three times a day, 75mg. of sertraline at noon and 15mg. of
mirtazapine at night. The doctor just put me on 25mg. of Seroquel at am
taking way too much medicine. I sleep pretty good but always wake up with a stomach
ache. Do you have any suggestions on me getting off of the Seroquel? It seems like
it makes me more nervous. I have only taken it for 12 days. Can I just quit taking it
and increase my mirtazapine to 30mg. which I did take at one time.

Please note that anything said here is not private or confidential, as this is a public forum. Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. Given that you have only been taking the Seroquel at such a low dose for less than 2 weeks, you can just stop the medication right now if you want as you are not at a risk for any withdrawal symptoms given the dose and length of use. There is no harm in increasing the Mirtazapine to 30mg/night either if you want, but I would recommend telling your doctor beforehand so that he/she is apprised.
