If you do try Seroquel, start at 25 mg and gradually increase it. I took 25 mg x 2 days, went to 50 mg x 2 days and have just increased to 100 mg x 2 days. I'm seeing my doc tomorrow and I think 100 is enough for right now since I'm not having any bad side effects, just some minor dizziness.

If you experience any negative effects with an increase in dose I would back down to the previous dose and hold at that level.

My experiences with any meds are to opt for a lower dose rather than a higher dose since I can get bad side effects rather quickly which causes me to have to stop the drug early.

Also, if you are on other meds, it's best to stop them (if possible) before trying something new so you can really know if the med is working on it's own. But then there may be withdrawl symptoms which can interfere with evaulating the effects. I can't remember what you are currently on.

And remember...I have only just started to feel better so it's early to tell whether this feeling will last. It would be odd to not be on an AD but a AP for depressive symptoms. It's really not the diagnosis that is being treated but the brain chemistry. If I stop Cymbalta I'm not sure that Seroquel will keep my depression away. We'll see...
