In reply to Seroquel Panic Help!, posted by Zana on March 26, 2009, at 8:14:06
I have experienced panic and increased anxiety occassionally with my use of seroquel, even at 25-50mg, for sleep. I can't offer a proper biochemical response here though except an interection between those two. Are you willing to change the seroquel? I know that others on here prefer zyprexa, which is another new AP like seroquel, for anxiety and sleep help. It's been decribed as "cleaner" in feel. I'm sorry I cant offer more help here...dont be affraid to ask for a change...seroquel beings me down a lil and I want to rid it from my med regimen but my gp is phobic of alot of meds and zyprexa is not in his cards for me so i'm stuck until I get a proper pdoc....dont allow yourself to get stuck if seroquel doesnt work the way you want it. There are posts above somewhere that speak of similar issues...seroquel and anxiety problems.
> Anybody else out there taking seroquel wake up in a panic? I take remeron, seroquel and klonopin at night. When I was taking remeron without seroquel I would sleep for 9 hours and wake up fine - depressed but not panicked. Since adding the seroquel I wake up after 6hrs, take a klonopin to try to get back to sleep and then wake up in this terrible, panicked state. I know I could just get up but even though the seroquel is helping with my depression I am still too depressed to face such a long day.
