I have been on Seroquel for five years and I take up to 3mg of xanax a day for anxiety. I recently have had added stress and a lot of anxiety. My doctor refuses to up my xanax and instead put me back on Lithium 450mg twice a day and then another 450mg added onto that next week...so 600mg Seroquel and 1350mg of Lithium on top of the xanax! I do feel better however I feel there should be another solution for my anxiety than polute my body with sooooo much bipolar meds. Any suggestions?

Have you tried any literature? David Burns' Feeling Good Handbook turned my life around. I refer to it as my psychological bible. When I feel down, or wayward, I refer to it and certain thoughts I've highlighted in the past that reinforced positive thoughts.
