swanny Posted October 27, 2010 Share Posted October 27, 2010 im on seroquel xr 400mg for schizophrenia. it took about 3 weeks to work BUT god has it worked! i feel like my old self again. a few years ago i was on regular seroquel 1600mg, i know 400mg sounds like a lot but compared to what dose ive been on before its tiny. im looking forward to my pdoc increasing it. the main issue that i want to raise with you is that some psychiatrists have said that seroquel isnt as effective as the other antipsychotics. so after doing some research on the net ive found out that its probably the weakest atypical. its an extremely mild antipsychotic. doesnt block dopamine as hard as the others. so can someone explain how this drug which is weaker than the others is working better than them?
