Hi, Itsik! When I first started taking quetipine I felt just like you do. After six weeks my doctor raised my dosage and that took care of the last of the *jitters*. I've been on it for almost two years and I feel wonderful.
Good luck to you. Be sure to stay in touch with your doctor and be honest about your progress. Dosage changes or adding another medication is always an options.
