I was really surprised how much this helped my depression after increasing Seroquel to 2 at night. It was prescribed for sleep (thx to Wellbutrin) so I could decrease my Ambien, and with a 1/2 of Trazadone works. The Wellbutrin helped lift me out of a major depression but the seroquel made me even happier, my old self; suddenly, I "loved" life again and don't get easily upset -- more mellow. It worked better than the Zoloft I take for anxiety (very low dose, at higher doses, I get severely apathetic). I love it --- except for the fatigue I have. I already had fatigue but think it might have made it a little worse. Not 100% sure though since I have a circadian sleep disorder & have sleep disturbances.

weight gain, hostility, anxiety. I'd take it, fall asleep and wake up a couple hours later a total monster.

Seroquel Review

Have been on Seroquel for a few months and it does help my sleeping, but I am gaining weight and have considered taking 1/2 tab to see if it will still help but keep me from being constantly hungry. Was on Trazadone for sleep and was groggy almost all the time, so this is better in that respect.

Seroquel Review

I'd say for older people who are done accomplishing anything big in their life Serequel is the right medication, it has almost not side effect. Its almost a dream like state. If your don't care about weight gain take this one! Its the best one out of all of them. It causes lack of motivation

Seroquel Review
| Good for sleep, not good for depression
Made me too tired to work. Slept great! Ate way too much. I do welbutrin with paxil now and ambian for sleep as needed. Doing well.

Seroquel Review

seroquel makes me feel like I have no energy. I get extremely tired and sleepy on it. I am being treated with seroquel for bipolar and was taken off all medicines and started on only seroquel. I am also ADHD and have had a hard time finding motivation and staying on the same task without having a stimulant like Vyvanse.

Okay so I got a book on depression and there is no longer depression, but you can now have 10 different depression types, now how do you treat that? Plus I am thinking that I need to go off all of my meds to get better. I also want to know has anyone taken Chantix and actually had you depression get better?
