Thanks, both responses we very helpful.
I went to see my prescribing doctor and he is sticking with the seroquel. Oh well. I suppose I will take it. He said I can half it, or even quarter it if that makes me feel better. But the pills are so tiny. If I hate it, then I we will try something
His thoughts are after I take the 25mg and don't freak out I won't be so afraid to take more. The good thing is that he said it's not the kind of medicine that has to have a steady amount in my system to work. So we'll see how it goes. I like not having to take it everyday. He was very open about the side effects which was refreshing. So I definately won't take it when I have to go to work the next day.
And since it's such a low dose, and I'm not taking it everyday I don't have to worry about weight gain and the other bad things that go along with it.
I see my new therapist tonight at 4:00, I'm told she specializes in bipolar and anxiety/panic. So I'm looking forward to that.
