Seroquel as and when needed for anxiety?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi,my pysch has prescribed me 25mg seroquel to take as and when needed for anxiety, but will this work? Most posts seem to show that most of the folk take it every day? Also, i take 25mg the other night for first time and spent the next day in bed all day exhausted, this is so un like me. Obviously the seroquel was to blame, but if i am to take it as and when needed then surely

this reaction wont lesson like they do when getting over the start up effects of any brain medication.

I also take 20mg escitalopram, any advice would be appreciated

    Anything to do with medication should be discussed with your doctor thats what you pay then for
