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?
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
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.
