Mini bypass in Seroquel



Recommended Posts

I recently had the mini gastric bypass surgery. I take Seroquel at night to help me sleep. The last two nights I'm not slept at all I think it's the way it's absorbs now. Can somebody help me with this? Is there anyone on here who has the same issue? Can somebody suggested different way of taking it? I already crush it

Ask your doctor if Seroquel is available in a salt tab form. Basically a salt tab is something you put on your tongue and it dissolve in your mouth. I have to take my antidepressant that way because otherwise I puke.

I only had to crush small meds for a few days. By a week out, I was given the ok to swallow pills the size of a jube jube. I've been stable on an antidepressants for many years and was worried that MGB might interfere with my response. However, I'm a month out and feeling just the same emotionally. My surgeon reassured me that it is unusual for dosages of psychiatric meds to require changing after MGB. However, if this is case for you, you should talk to your prescriber about whether you might need a higher dose. Good luck!
