    If you can still guzzle a beer to take the edge off your meds,you're good to go.

    It doesn't have to be an allergy, but it is possible to have a reaction to a medicine. I'd take it seriously and check with the doc as quickly as possible.

    Usually medications come with a sheet listing the possible side effects. Sometimes they will say to stop taking it if some of them are happening.

    I had a bad experience with a reaction to a medicine.

    Good care is a shot in the dark at best.

    Yes you could be allergic to meds. I have had the experience of a BP med slowly, insidiously causing my throat to be sore - especially at night. I was having sleep issues, hypochondria (fear of throat cancer) and generally felt miserable. This took about 6 months to reach the point where I sought help. There was some initial fumbles on the physician side but once the real problem, the particular BP drug, was identified within 2 or 3 days I had near total relief.

    Could be something much, much worse for the OP than a tumor.

    He could have spiders living in his head.

    Speaking as a former paramedic and current healthcare risk manager, you need to call your physician immediately and report this. I, myself, would not take any further doses until I spoke with my physician. The symptoms you describe could be consistent with an allergic or anaphylactic reaction which can possibly kill you if it is severe enough and is untreated.

    It is your report of your throat swelling and difficulty swallowing that concerns me. If you feel you must continue taking the drug before speaking with your physician, make sure you have either liquid or quick-dissolving strips of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and take 50 mg. if you experience these symptoms after taking Seroquel.

    I am intending to scare you: you need to call your physician right away. It is probable that you are not having a true allergic or anaphylactic reaction, but only your physician can determine that by listening to your symptoms and taking a history.

    Life-Threatening Allergic Reaction
    Although rare, Seroquel can cause a life-threatening allergic reaction. The symptoms are hives, swelling of the face, swelling of the lips, swelling of the tongue, difficulty breathing and wheezing. If you experience any of these symptoms, call for emergency medical help at once.
