How can I support my girlfriend who has to come off Seroquel?
@hsteven83, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. As you know, discontinuing Seroquel (quetiapine) suddenly is not recommended. It is generally advised to discontinue gradually.
Here is another discussion where you can learn more about the experiences of other members.

@anniegk @jh1 @jimhd @chrisjc and others members may have some thoughts and experience to share with about what you can expect and how you can help manage your girlfriend's withdrawal.
HSteven, is it possible to contact the doctor or your girlfriend's pharmacist to get an "emergency" prescription so that you have enough to slowly taper?

Walmart pharmacy won't do anything without a doctor's approval, and her doctor is new and lacks understanding of mental health issues. Her last appointment, she didn't even refill her prescription. I had to call and she did, but she was insistent that she schedules an appointment in a month, and my girlfriend didn't make it to that one, because she feels like the doctor doesn't care. I'm gonna call on Monday and explain to her nurse that she just needs one more perscription to ween herself off, but I'm not hopeful.
