I've been on Quetiapine Fumarate for almost 2 weeks. I started at 25mg at bedtime and then went up to 50mg at bedtime. This Friday night will mark 2 weeks. I've been diagnosed with Cyclothymia, a slight case of Borderline, and ADHD. I'm also going through a breakup, so I'm in a real funk. I suffer from anxiety as well. I know that I am supposed to wait at least a month but I am getting impatient and I need to get my life together. So I'd like to hear about other people's experience in regards to how long they had to wait (and and other details you'd like to share).I also get crazy jealous in my relationship, anyone have experience with that?
How long did it take for Seroquel to kick in? Aside for the sleeping effect, which I appreciate?

Hi, RS! I was diagnosed with a Bipolar II subtype when I started taking Seroquel. The drowsiness, as you know, kicks in immediately but the therapeutic effects took about 3-4 weeks for me.
I think you're probably real close so try to be patient just a little bit longer. If it works as well for you as it did for me then the wait will be worth it.
Best wishes, WCV
I started out on 100mg at night. It didnt help me at all. Now my dr just started me on 800mg at night. It still takes almost 2 hours to make me sleepy. I only sleep about 4 hrs. My depression and anxiety are still bad. I have ptsd and bipolar along with borderline so i dont really know why it doesnt work well for me. I hope you are feeling better.
