Hello. I have been on Seroquel XR(currently at 300mg) for about a year and a half now. I've noticed over the past nine months or so, I keep getting more and more frequent thoughts about death. These are not suicidal thoughts at all, but more anxiety about death (it's a scary world out there, I guess).

My question is, can these thoughts be related to the Seroquel at all? I often think about this stuff all day, to the point where it is really crippling sometimes and I find myself incredibly anxious in public spaces. This never used to happen (or very rarely and not to this degree) before the Seroquel, and has gotten worse since I increased it. But so far in my research I can't find any link between the two, and my psychiatrist said they weren't related either.

Thank you.
