Does Seroquel work?

I was on and off Remeron for the past 2 years, helped, but then pooped out and no longer works.

I saw a psychiatrist today who prescribed me 50mg seroquel XR. It's not supposed to be as potent as straight/regular Seroquel.

Anyone with anxiety benefit? Thanks!

im hoping the seroquel xr will help me sleep, b/c remeron no longer makes me sleepy nor helps with anxiety or appetite.

My anxiety is very bad right now and I need sleep. SOOO sleep deprived.

Hopefully this seroquel xr 50mg will help with insomnia, anxiety and appetite soon. :)

It really helps some people with their anxiety and depression. I've heard some people say it makes them tired, others say it's stimulating and others have no side effects.
I really hope it helps you and you're able to get some much needed sleep and anxiety relief.

What?  The Seroquel?

What happened?

It did not even make me tired. I still had the cortisol rushes, but then once i tried to fall asleep, the serequel put me into some sort of sleep paralysis/hallucination. It was the scariest thing EVER. NEVER TOUCHING THAT STUFF AGAIN!!
