i am on 100 mg zoloft for 3 months and now on 50 mg seroquel. i am terrified of being a zombie and non functional. i have a job. don't know what to do. would like to up the zoloft to 150 first. any help would be helpful. has anyone had this situation?
Do you take it at night or during the day?
I'm with you on that. I think if I wasn't at max on the antidepressant I'd want to try that first before adding another med. Unless of course you get side effects when you increase it.
Hi, relyse! You could easily increase your Zoloft up to 200mg ~ so I'm not sure either why your doctor would add Seroquel so early on. It does help tremendously with sleep if that's been a problem.
Seroquel is generally prescribed for Bipolar Disorder, but if you take it you should be aware that's it's fairly sedating at lower doses. Not that it turns you into a *zombie*, but you need to allow for at least 8hrs of sleep and a strong cup of coffee in the morning.
I had a little trouble with that at first, but just adjusted my schedule to get that sleep. I'm on 400mg now and I don't even have the morning fog anymore.
Best wishes, WCV
