I have my sn, ranitidine and metoclopramide, but I'm afraid that my survival instinct will ruin everything. How long does it take to take effect? Will I pass out? If so, how long will i take to pass out? I have also read that meto and antipsychotics do not mix, I have been taking low doses of quetiapine, such as less than 50 mg, how long should I stop taking it? 10 days will be enough? Any help is welcome, English is not my first language.

First of all i am sorry you are contemplating this.
You may start to feel the effects within 3 minutes
Unconsciousness occurst aroun 12 min
At 50mg of quetiapine theres almost no reason to stopping it.

No, you don't need benzos. I would recommend them for the tachycardia and to prevent anxiety. They aren't necessary and I would stop the anti psychotic around 24 hours before if I were you but I'm not a nurse. I think SN might cause seizures but luckily I'm on lamictal for bipolar which is also used for seizures so I'm pretty sure I'm immune to them.

I take quetiapine. I suggest you stop taking it 2 weeks before the SN. However, I did research about that and I found different suggestions, 1 week, 3 weeks, up to 8 weeks. So use your best educated guess. The
PPH said wait 3 weeks, but it might have been updated since the time I read that.
