Hi,

I have been reading A LOT (IMHO) about negative Seroquel trials, and how the med doesn't seem to stand up well as an antipsychotic. (It seems to be best for sleep and a slight effect on depression. On the other hand, I have also read of it's propensity to increase anxiety and akathisia.) That is not to say that is doesn't work for you, but maybe check out some of the other antipsychotics. Some people seem also to do well on two antipsychotics.
Just a suggestion...and whatever you do, (you likely know) don't stop cold-turkey any of your meds.

Best,
Jay
