A friend of mine has started taking Seroquel (sp?) and had some questions about it. She knows I'm involved here and that while we aren't docs...we do know a lot about medications. This is what she wrote me: So i started the seroquel 25 ( not XL ) for my anxiety on sunday night. About an hour after i take it, i feel exhausted and my entire body is heavy. I feel completely drugged, but i do sleep pretty good lol. Yesterday when i woke up, i felt a little out of it and kind of light headed but it did fade by the afternoon. Today i woke up really dizzy and it's been getting better as the day goes on but it's still not normal. So does this go away? She takes it for anxiety and I don't know the dose she's on but she just started it. Any thoughts or is this normal when you first start taking it? She's in her early 20's by the way and also takes Cymbalta.
