I Am A Methamphetamine Smoker (about 2 Years), And I
I also also take Seroquel 50MG for sleep. Seroquel was not given to me for any other reason than to sleep. It was not given to for any mental disorder. I do not take this everyday, I only take this on the days that I need to sleep and where I know I will not be smoking anymore.
My question is, does this combination of drugs affect my heart more than only smoking methamphetamine? Could this combination hurt me more instead of helping me?
I would explain as follows:
Welcome back to Ask a Doctor service!
Regarding your concern, I would explain that methamphetamine and seroquel have opposite effects: methamphetamine agitated, while seroquel calms your nervous system and the heart.
So, I would recommend avoiding this combination ( avoiding methamphetamine would be the best choice).
Regarding bisoprolol, it is ok to take it concomitantly with these drugs.
Hope you will find this information helpful!
I remain at your disposal for any further questions whenever you need!
Dr.Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
Opinion as follows:
Let me explain that even though you don't take Seroquel and met at the same time, you should know that some amount of meth remain in the blood even hours after intake; the same is true for Seroquel. So, some degree of interaction may occur.
I would encourage you trying to stop meth, as adverse effects like insomnia or tachycardia could also most likely subside after that. And it would not be necessary to continue Bisoprolol and Seroquel, too..
Wishing you good health!
