Re: Seroquel for anxiety really works!!!!!!
I took seroquel for depression. It worked mildly, it did make a small difference but the weight gain was too much for me, it made me feel more depressed. As in, the weight gain heightened my depression. At that time, i didnt have anxiety problems. I only developed bad anxiety when my depression got worse, and most of the medication i took didnt work. Now, I am on effexor, but on a high dose of 350mg. After trying soo many kinds of meds, only effexor seemed to work on me, but only at a high dose, a lower dose would be useless (for me at least). It has worked wonders for my depression. Anxiety wise, it did help alot as well, but not entirely. I think that my anxiety predominantly came from ill treated depression. Since my depression is lifting slowly, i reckon.. after forcing myself to face certain fears (slowly), things will get better. I doubt that things can be 100% better though, i think it will be a continuos struggle, im just trying to tone down the struggle as much as i can. Unless in the near future they somehow develope a total cure for depression. People here in Malaysia seem to think that ECT is the cure but I still think the technology is too primitive and the side effects totally unworth it. All the best. Be strong yeah? I know it can feel very sad, pathetic and tough. The stigma will eventually lift. You will eventually find stability, something that works for you.
