My mother is on Seroquel.(25 mg at night only) Her Primary Care Physician is prescribing 3X/day 25mg. Has anyone seen this and what results have you seen? Right now on the 25mg at night my mother is combative and refusing care. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
Sever conditions in younger people can require a dosage of up to 800mg per day. In fact, overdose conditions aren't observed until a patient takes more than 1350mg (13.5 grams) at one time.
It is possible that increasing her dosage could help her combativeness...but please keep in mind that seroquel doesn't help everyone. While it does wonders with some people, it can actually increase anger and agitation in others. You can't be sure if the combativeness is a result of the seroquel itself, or is because she isn't on enough seroquel. Follow your doctors orders.
