Hello, I was placed on Zoloft 100mg once a day and Seroquel 25mg at night to help sleep as well for treatment resistantance. I have noticed a change. It has help boost the Zoloft to where it has allieviated thetdepression. However, I feel i lack an enormous amount of motivation. Will taking Seroquel eventually boost motivation at higher doses upon my Dr's. approval? Please, if you have any similar personal experience and have any input or advice, please do share. Any input or advice would greatly be welcomed. Thank you in advance.
Hi, i also take Seroquel and an SSRI (along with other medications), and i believe they work well together. If i am being completely honest, i took me around 3 months to settle with 60mg Citalopram, 200mg XR Seroquel (+ 50mg Amitriptyline). I felt as you describe, a huge lack of motivation... once i settled with the medication however my life was very much improved and i now work in the mental health field and spend time with my family - including my incredibly cute nephew - and friends and colleagues. I never though that would be possible some years ago. So the 3 months that felt like forever were certainly worth it for me. Of course you are on a much lower dose of Seroquel so i would imagine you will settle it with it much quicker??? I would say it is a very good medication
