I took paxil for over a decade. I took venlafaxine for over a decade. I too escitalopram for a couple years.  That was the best SSRI for me.  I took Seroquel at two different periods during my illness.  I suffer from recurrent major depression with anxiety and insomnia.  My depression and

the associated lack of sleep has allowed me to experience a wide range of psychiatric symptoms. 25mg of Seroquel is a very small dose.  I think I was prescribed 100mg, which I took

to initiate and maintain sleep.  It was a miracle.  I would take the Seroquel about 30 minutes prior to attempting sleep, and fall asleep almost immediately.  If I woke early, I was able

to resume sleep. I slept for 7.5 to 8 hours. I hadn't been able to do that for months.   The Seroquel also eased my anxiety quite a bit.  Taking the Seroquel allowed my to re-sync my body to restorative sleep.  I would say

the sleep itself was responsible for the largest part of my improvement.  A severe lack of sleep can cause psychosis in and of itself. I can't say the Seroquel didn't have unwanted

side effects.  Nothing serious, but I did feel a bit foggy and unmotivated while taking it.  Once I got my sleep on schedule, I discontinued taking it.  But I know where it is at if I ever need

it again. Good luck.  Nobody ever luvved me like me mum, mum, mum.
