What do you think. Think about it; Valium is a depressant, and Seroquel is an antipsychotic medication. Seroquel can help with sleep in small does. Would the two together help one become less depressed? No.

The dosages of Seroquel necessary to help with depression are more like 200mg and higher. 12.5mg might possibly help with anxiety or sleep, but even that might be too low. You could try it first to see, but you might then need to move up to 25-50mg h.s. or as a PRN. I am not aware of any contraindications to taking it with Valium.

I tried 12.5 mg Seroquel for sleep last night. I was only asleep for 4 hours. I have been trying Seroquel for sleep for the past 20 days. Also tried 25 mg; 50 mg; 75 mg; 100 mg and none of them worked. It may work for some but it doesn't work for me.
