My Dr added Seroquel to Prozac for anxiety and depression with awful life long insomnia. At first I took it as needed at small doses and it does work for me for anxiety and insomnia. But it has awful side effect profile if you take it at high dose every day. Hope this helps good luck
Hi! I'm only on 25mg at bedtime but my doc said it would help me to get a full night sleep and not wake with anxiety during the night or first thing in the morning and so far so great for 3 months!
I have a high level of anxiety plus bipolar and am on diazepam for anxiety but, my Dr. also said when My anxiety is worse I could take Seroquel. I am on other meds for the Bipolar.
Jeff; Yes it is common to be used with another medication like you are but to get the full benefit of the medication it has to be taken about the same time each day or night whatever the doctor said to work the best at controlling your condition and the morning anxiety. Plus it is important to get a good nights sleep so you have the mindset to help with the anxiety.
