I'm struggling with bad anxiety and PTSD. Also had massive heart attack 14 months ago ..had two stents put in. I have been on Seroquel XR for about 9 months at 150mg my doctor has just give me IR for morning 25mg it makes me so down I have to break into quarters. As I'm on Valium and they are trying to get me to reduce but finding it hard..so thought maybe someone else takes both Seroquel XR & IR. Would be great full for help

I empathize with your struggle. I also suffer from C-PTSD and anxiety. I was on Seroquel IR but was unable to handle the fatigue it caused even at very low doses. It also increased my depression. Many doctors are trying to get their patients off of and or reduce benzo's like Valium. Benzodiazepines work well but you can build tolerance and dependency. I agree that it is very hard to reduce the Valium.
Maybe tell your doctor about how the Seroquel IR is making you feel. There may be other med options your doctor can suggest.
Hope things get better for you soon.
