Doreen - Seroquel (quetiapine)is often very effective but is usually prescribed for individuals who have significant levels of anxiety and/or particular problems with sleep. I'm assuming that your psychiatrist has tried other medications for your condition before starting you on Seroquel. Don't hesitate to ask why this medicine has been chosen at this time. You have a right to know how these important decisions are being made.
