I had been in seroquel for nearly 8 years to treat chronic anxiety-based insomnia. In the sixth year I started to have severe side effects -- tardive dyskinesia the worst (involuntary and violent arm shakes, dizziness, falling over). When I stopped the drug, all symptoms vanished, but now I'm stuck taking benzo drugs that I do not like. Seroquel worked beautifully for me for a long time. Solid night of sleep, no hangover the next day, great mental acuity (the benzo pills make me feel sluggish and less mentally alert).
Is there any drug in a different drug family like it? Ideally looking for an antidepressant as insomnia medication. Thanks for your time!
