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
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.
