I don't tolerate Seroquel well. They started me on that when I was in the hospital with severe anxiety but decided it was making things worse, I was pretty much out of it. I don't really think it was the Seroquel, but that once they finally listened and hospitalized me, I just shut down because I was in so much pain with the anxiety. I now take Lexapro for depression, Lamictal as a mood stabilizer, Deplin to help both work better, and Zyprexa as needed for anxiety. Boy, the Zyprexa really knocked the anxiety out after many other drugs had been tried. I only have to take about one 5 mg a week of Zyprexa now.
I took Effexor for about a month - it made me very hungry.
