<<Seroquel is the newest antipsychotic and reports to have less of those side effects than others. Many meds including antidepressants/antipsychotics, can give anxiety for weeks because the brain needs at least 3-4 to "down regulate" which means less receptors. The more receptors you have the more stimulation u will get. That's why SSRIs claim 3-4+ weeks plus. The med works quicker, but the brain needs to reduce it's receptors due to the increased amt of serotonin. The brain creates extra receptors when there is too little, and 3-4 weeks+ it reduces the amt of receptors if there is a higher concentration of that neurotransmitter. They work (not antipsychotics) by forming a barrier in front on the transmitter, that way its only the receptor that can get serotonin, not the transmitter and receptor combined.>>

Huh, I had no idea, you learn something new every day. Perhaps the reason *I* didn't have that side effect is that I'm on Klonopin, so anxiety is hard to achieve, not that I'm complaining.
