    Re: Help Quetiapine

    Yes I'm on Quetiapine slow release tablets right now

    To be perfectly honest, I really don't know if they're helping me or not

    I know when I was first put on them, I had the normal release tablets and I took it at night and it knocked me out!!! But that only lasted about a week then I was back to having sleep problems again.

    I now take 100mgs of the slow release tablets at night and I take a 25mg normal release tablet in the morning. I can tell you now that they do not help with my sleep problem at all.

    They're supposed to be really good for anxiety, which was why I was put on them, but like I've said, I really just don't know if they help or not.

    I'm going to be discussing this with my GP in a few weeks time.

    I'd say give them a shot as you may find that they help you lots and anything is worth a try

    Have you tried or thought about any CBT at all??

    I have found CBT really helpful for agoraphobia. I'm doing the CBT4Panic, link is in my signature, and I'm having good results, slow going but I don't mind all the while I'm progressing.

    CBT4Panic is all online, so that you can do it from home and I believe it is now a completely free of charge therapy

    It's a great programme, it is easy to understand and follow.

    Why not give it a try or at least go and have a look at it and see how you feel
