I am a single mom of a 7 year old son. I have awful panic attacks and struggle with depression. I am on 100mg of Zoloft and .5mg of Ativan as needed for anxiety. I want to start enjoying life again instead of living with high anxiety. My doctor suggested 25mg of Seroquel at bedtime. I am nervous about starting a new med. Any thoughts?
Not to worry. 25mgs is a very low dose and you are taking at bedtime. It will help the anxiety and depression and hopefully help you sleep better. Don't be surprised if you need to increase the dose overtime as I said, 25 mgs is a low dose.
Medication is but one therapy for my Lupus. I joined this group because I am starting Benlysta. I belong to 12 step program to help deal with life on life's terms and the narcotic medications that I take. I also see a therapist to treat the emotional roller coaster of this disease. Having someone who understands is priceless. I too am a single mother and grandmother raising a 7 month old. It is overwhelming at times and sometimes my fears become overwhelming. What helps me most is my nightly medication, meditation, prayer and my faith in God.
My son 32 was almost bed ridden with depression and not being able to sleep at night.Since he started taking it I see big difference in him. He sleeps at night and has a lot more energy during the day. he will actually get out of bed and do things now instead of laying there all the Time.
