While using Seroquel i've been able to sleep, and my anxiety and depression havent been anything like they were. Although if im in a crisis my mood seems to go beyond the help of this medication. But its because of the medication I have less Crisis's.

Comment:
I use seroquel at night (300) mg and it helps me to sleep and to feel less anxiety in the morning hours. It is a possibly dangerous drug to take and I had to have cataract surgery which, I believe, caused the condition. Also weight gain is definately an issue. But, weighing in the odds, I think I would choose Serouel time release as a good treatment for bipolar symptoms in general.
