Again, I am not a doctor or a pharmacist but I do take seroquel, and 500 mg daily seems like a VERY
large dose, and I normally have a high tolerance for medication. I can't imagine how you could stay awake and function at that dose. Just my amateur opinion.
P.S. I smiled when you said that you are an aerospace engineer. I was very depressed as a child and a teenager - self-mutilation, rampant drug use, just name it - and practically begged my mother for psychiatric help (Dad was not in the picture). She wouldn't even consider it because, she said, the only people who need psychiatrists are lunatics and idiots. Of course, this is the same woman who would not allow me to attend a Catholic church because, she said, Catholics worship Mary and do not believe in Jesus. (?????) No wonder I have my wires crossed.
