It would replace Buspar with ease, possibly reduce your Aderall consumption, fit in very nicely with Lexapro & add some extra antidepressant effect of it's own.

Thanks Chemist, but I'm not an expert, I'm just a nosey parker with an opinion. :) If Seroquel blows your hair back, then that's fine with me & it does have less chance of causing weight gain than Zyprexa, Remeron & probably the sedating TCA's.

Cheers,
Panda.
