Hope first, then Seroquel v. Benzo

Posted by musil on October 1, 2002, at 10:18:33

First, everyone, let there be hope.

Second, I've been taking seroquel (100mg plus 10mg Lexapro bedtime, 50mg seroquel morning) and it has helped a lot with sleep, anxiety and psychotic symptoms (BPD and clinical depression with psychosis).

However, benzos (klonopin, diazepam) also helped
just as well with anxiety and the psychosis is induced by anxiety, but benzos were a bitch to discontinue, though perhaps safer than seroquel while taking.

It's fairly obvious from the past few years that I will be a long-term consumer of meds to corrall meaninglessness and wicked anxiety.

But I've got concerns about the safety of seroquel for the long term. Benzos seem to be safe for the long term but difficult to discontinue.

Thoughts about seroquel v. benzo for the long term would be appreciated.

My best to all.
