help! I googled quetiapine and saw it said to be very careful on this medication as it can slow down your breathing. Frankly that scares me that something can do that. I went on lexapro 15 days ago as a straight swap from Paxil which was no longer working. I'm having bad insomnia with the new medication and withdrawals from the Paxil. He said this will help me sleep. I've read great reviews on here from people who have very bad anxiety. Just wondering how safe it is to take this drug? I also suffer with severe sleep apnea which I use a mouth guard for but seeing it slows down your breathing I don't know? But I was this anxiety gone. I'm having them every minute of the day!! Please help!!
