I take 400 mg of seroquel but I take it at night because of the sedation qualities it has. Ask you Dr. if you can do it that way. I really like it because it helps my mind shut off and I can sleep. On the flip side, I agree with Ducky and Smiler. You need to take your meds as perscribed until you can get in to see your Dr. Don't mess around with the dosages or times you take them until you get a go ahead from your Dr. Meds can be really tricky as your body gets used to them. Smiler said that some drugs can take up to 8-10 weeks, some of them longer, to reach therapeutic levels. I know how hard it is as I'm still getting used to some of mine. It takes a while for you to find the right meds and dosages. And all you can really do is give it time. My heart goes out to you and know that we are all here if needed.
