i think that is a good idea about reducing the benzos.

seroquel... will zonk you / make you feel tired and lethargic while your body is getting used to it.

the sadness...

you said you felt sad after the benzo high wore off (the first time you took it) so maybe the benzo's are having a paradoxical effect.

they do that sometimes...

give them to people for rage and sometimes the benzos increase the rage rather than calming them down.

give them to people for anxiety and sometimes they increase that.

give them to people for depression and well...

just my 2c.

it is of course impossible to know whether it is the seroquel or the benzo since they both changed at the same time.

it isn't uncommon for a p-doc to do something like that when the person presents fairly distressed... they just want to do something anything to help...

i hope you feel better soon.
