I am currently taking Pristiq 50mg, and have been for almost a year. My dr just prescribed Seroquel 25mg to add to this because of worsening depression and trouble sleeping. Does anyone have any experience with this?
Anyone have experience with Seroquel added to Pristiq for depression?

I have been taking 300 mg of seroquel for 11 months, 100 mg in the morning and 200 mg before bed. I would not be able to sleep without taking seroquel and it does help to lessen my awful anxiety. You are on a low dose. I started on 50 mg and worked my way up over a period of four months to present dose. Just give it some time.
I was prescribed every antidepressant on the market with no great success ~ and was taking venlafaxine (Pristiq's cousin) when I started Seroquel. What a difference! Whether it's the combination or just the addition of the Seroquel I feel like a new person.
It's did make me a bit groggy for the first week or so, but nothing a brisk walk and cup of coffee didn't fix right up.
Many people with treatment-resistant depression actually have one of the forms of Bipolar/Unipolar depression and that's why an anti-psychotic medication works so much better.
I hope it does for you what it's done for me! WCV
