I was on Seroquel XR until my new doc was against it because it causes diabetes( I am 45 female). I took his advise and began this new med. I am showing noticable signs of lower )depressed feelings-no suicidal , just down. I see him again in 3 weeks. Hope it gets better. Does anyone have experience with this med?

Hi and welcome to the site!
I cannot speak for this particular medicine per say, but I have experienced a clinical depression. (1993) At that time it took five different meds to find the one that worked for that particular depression. I say that particular one, as every depression is different, therefore what would work during one episode may not work for another. I want to encourage you to continue your medication until you see your doctor. It takes a good 5-6 weeks before determining if this is the 'one' for you. Yes, it is a long process, but once you DO find the proper regime it will be like a light switch going on and you will be on your way to finding YOU again. I promise that you WILL find the right meds. Just be patient and stay here with us so we can continue to encourage and lift you up!
Best to you,

The med I am now taking is Pristq 50 mg. I am not sleeping very well on it. I am feeling more depressed having stopped my Seroquel XR . I see doc again on 27th, so I just have to hang in here til then. I just hate when they change meds. Everyone who has spoken with me( family, by phone mostly) say that can tell a huge difference in my moods. They say I seem more depressed. I don't really have anything that I enjoy at this moment... I know, I know, hang in there...
