When he takes it he is calm and sleepy. When it wears off before the next dose he gets chatty until dose time. Not all people get all side effects. A drug works for some people and not for others. Keep track of how you do on any and all drugs so you can give good feedback to your doctor to help get on the right meds. for you and the right dosage. God bless my friend. I hope this helps. Love, Makwa/Jo:)

Jaye Originally Answered: Is St. John's Wort effective for depression as well as anxiety, or just for depression?
I personally didn't find it helped my anxiety at all.I do have a few suggestions. First of all, cut all caffeine. Valerian root in small doses is good. I take it to sleep, it makes me too drowsy to take daily during the daytime. I have taken it in a pinch though, when super stressed, and it leaves me feeling calm. Passion flower is also good, I have taken it daily for several months at different points in my life. I haven't taken it for 6 months or more, personally I think in 6 months time you should be working hard to solve the underlying issues that cause your anxiety. For me, neither had any real drawbacks. They didn't take 2 weeks to build in my system, and didn't cause any unpleasant side effects that rx meds can. Good luck.

You may consider going to the ER at your local hospital. Being admitted to the hospital until they get your meds straightened out can be very helpful. If you prefer not to be admitted it can be helpful to discuss your reactions to the seroquel with a medical professional. The Paxil deal (yo-yo on and off) is bad for your system & can make things worse. If you go on, you need to stay on. Discuss your sleep issues with your pharmacist. they often have good suggestions. My son is currently on Prozac which nabs his anxiety as well as his depression in one fell swoop. so far so good for nearly 2 years. If the seroquel is causing a bad reaction, it's not for you. In the mean time, you need to continue counseling in order to learn strategies to cope with your anxiety. These are valuable to know regardless of the meds you're taking. Hang in there. Good luck and God Bless!

Why is Seroquel prescribed? Seroquel is prescribed for the treatment of schizophrenia, a mental disorder marked by delusions (false beliefs), hallucinations, disrupted thinking, and loss of contact with reality. It is also used for the treatment of manic and depressive episodes associated with bipolar disorder. Seroquel belongs to one of the newer classes of antipsychotic medications. Researchers believe that it works by diminishing the action of dopamine and serotonin, two of the brain's chief chemical messengers. Most important fact about Seroquel Seroquel may cause tardive dyskinesia, a condition characterized by uncontrollable muscle spasms and twitches in the face and body. This problem can be permanent, and appears to be most common among older adults, especially women. Side effects may include: Abdominal pain, constipation, diminished movement, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, excessive muscle tone, headache, indigestion, low blood pressure (especially upon standing), nasal inflammation, neck rigidity, rapid or irregular heartbeat, rash, sleepiness, tremor, uncontrollable movements, weakness Read more: http://www.drugs.com/pdr/seroquel.html#ixzz0rQWqgNuw

It's done wonders for our neighbor who has PT SD = he was in Iran and Iraq for 15 months. It's not without it's problems and getting the dosage right takes time. I've placed a couple links for you to go read and understand what the drug is, how it works and what the side effects are. And it if turns out that this drug doesn't work well for you; there are plenty of others. Don't get discouraged!

A low dose of Seroquel will calm your mind down. It made me very ill, but most people get on ok with it. It works quickly so you will soon know in a few days if you like it or not. It can make depression worse, so watch your mood.

try it out, if you start to feel horrible, call the Dr right away. Usually that pill doesnt have too many side effects that bother people besides drowsiness and weight gain. You can take it at night, if thats what yr Doc prescribes. It will just help keep your moods more balanced.

Quetiapine has recently become fashionable among psychiatrists for use in anxiety, having previously been used as an anti-psychotic. As far as I am aware it still has no UK licence for anxiety however. It is broadly well tolerated, here is the data sheet: http://www.medicines.org.uk/EMC/medicine...

Peronelle Originally Answered: What should I tell my doctor (anxiety and bouts with depression)?
Have you been on any medication before? Just curious. Yeah, anxiety can really knock you down. I'm so sorry you deal with this too. I wouldn't wish anxiety &/or depression on anyone. Runs in both sides of my family as well. :( I have had anxiety and depression since I can remember - literally, some of my earliest memories are ones of being so "sad" and worried. I wasn't diagnosed until I was 24 because I was so high functioning that people couldn't believe that I had any sort of mood disorder. Through a series of stops and starts over many years I think I MAY have a handle on it now. Hopefully. Sigh. I tried imiprimine (old-school med), zoloft, prozac, and paxil. They all took the edge off of my depression but did very little for my anxiety (which I actually didn't know I had until about a year ago. I thought it was all depression). A practitioner who noticed the anxiety tried me on Lexapro, which helped a lot but my insurance discontinued covering it so I switched to Pristiq, which has been a God-send for the depression AND the anxiety. By keeping a mood chart my practitioner and I were able to see when I was having dips in mood, having anxiety, etc. She decided to try me on Lamictal (a mood stabilizer) as well. I was really nervous about this because I am leery of meds and I knew that mood stabilizers were prescribed primarily for people wit Bipolar Disorder and for whatever reason I didn't want to be diagnosed at "bipolar". She told me that a lot of people who continue to suffer from depression/anxiety while on an anti-depressant do well by adding Lamictal. She was right. I have never felt so stable, even-keeled. I still have bouts of dep/anx once or twice a week, but it is short-lived and manageable. I do know that people who have a long term history of depression/anxiety (sounds like you do) tend to have to experiment with different meds in order to get just the right mix. Don't give up. Also, people like us will usually have to be on meds for the long haul, unlike someone who fell into depression for the first time at 25 (for example), got on meds and got back to normal within a few months. I used to be so anti-meds, anti-mental health diagnoses, etc. I'm still not a fan, but they have saved my life in so many different way. I tried to pray, meditate, read the Bible, read self-help books, exercise, change my diet, cut out coffee, tried natural supplements/herbs, make new friends, took classes, on and on. All of those things did help me on some level, but never relieved the depression and anxiety. Tell your doctor everything that you are feeling, thinking, doing. There are also on-line mental health screenings that you can do. Maybe complete one of the questionnaires, print it out and take it with you to your doctor appt so that you will have all the information in front of you. For me, working with a regular MD was not helpful. Two different physicians tried me on zoloft and prozac, but never followed through with me. Just wrote the prescription and left it at that. Never saw me again for the issue. My gyn referred me to a mental health nurse practitioner in the clinic and this made all the difference in the world. The MHNP did a thorough assessment, started me on some meds and at first saw me every two weeks to see how I was doing, tweaking meds as needs, etc. It has been 1.5 yrs. and I still see her every 4-6 weeks to talk about the meds, my moods, etc.I would recommend finding someone who is going to see you through every step of the way. As far as natural supplements, I know that 5HTTP supplements, chamomile & valerian root herbs and some B vitamins can help. As well, having a thyroid check and vitamin D levels checked can be helpful. I did all of these, but none of them helped. Best of luck to you - although it might not feel like it and it might take some trial and error, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
