For those of you who had success with seroquel eliminating or greatly reducing dp/dr how long did it take to notice an improvement??
I've been on seroquel for 4 weeks (2 weeks at 25mg pm, and 2 weeks of 25mg am/25mg pm)

I haven't noticed any positive effects :(

I'm also on 25 mg of lexapro

I'm so scared nothing will ever help me

50mg a day in total is a tiny dose. i started on 25mg first day, 2nd day on 50 etc, and within a few days I'm on 200mg and no change. speak to your doctor because i don't think that dose is going to do fuck all for you.

How long have you been on 200mg??

That's interesting because I had heard from several people that the lower the dose it's better for anxiety... it's such a fucking crapshoot with meds

I've been on it for about a week and nothing yet. I think my doctor is following a research paper so he has an evidence-based approach to this problem. I would go back and speak to your doctor about this. It is one big trail and error game with meds. If you have really bad depression, then I would try and get that sorted out as well.

Googling "Seroquel dosage" yields this link: https://www.drugs.com/dosage/seroquel.html

25mg twice a day is a long way from 400-800mg per day. I took Seroquel on two occasions for depression related insomnia. It was

effective at 75=100mg. If you want to know what Seroquel will do for you, I would think you need to take

a more therapeutic dosage. Your doctor appears to be tinkering. Take him by the collar and slap him a few times.
