Hi I have generalized anxiety disorder and now and again I go through episodes of depression. For this I need medication but I think I might be better off in the long run if I came off meds completely but i don't see that happening. I was prescribed seroquel to treat my GAD depression and all the sleepless nights I've been having, but I am finding it hard to take these pills partly due to having had bad experiences with other meds before and more to do with the scary side effects and the effects of long term usage I have read about. Can anybody else relate to this problem? Is there any advice anybody can give me? Should I just ignore the potential risks I am taking and chalk it down as excessive worry or am I right to question?
