Take Seroquel XR exactly as your healthcare provider tells you to take it. Do not change the dose yourself. Take Seroquel XR by mouth, with a light meal or without food. Seroquel XR should be swallowed whole and not split, chewed or crushed.
If you feel you need to stop Seroquel XR, talk with your healthcare provider first. If you suddenly stop taking Seroquel XR, you may experience side effects such as trouble sleeping or trouble staying asleep (insomnia), nausea, and vomiting.
If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is close to the next dose, skip the missed dose. Just take the next dose at your regular time. Do not take 2 doses at the same time unless your healthcare provider tells you to. If you are not sure about your dosing, call your healthcare provider.
