Has anyone had any good response to Seroquel??  I have tried several things to help depression and sleep.  Was on cymbalta and ambien cr but did not work, new doctor
wants me to stop ambien cr and abilify and try seroquel and cymbalta together.

Hi April,

I have never tried seroquel, though my sister takes it and seems to be doing good on it. I understand that you can lose weight on it. That is good. Maybe I should try that. But I do take abilify and am feeling very good on it. So I don't want to switch.

I hope that it works well for you.

Hugs, Karen

One of the side effects is weight gain, so I guess I am going to have to start watching what
I eat. I hope I have good response to this new medication. Abilify did not do well with me, it gave me jitters and heart palpertaions. My doctor said it would help me sleep..........NO

Wish me luck
