>Thank you JonW,
> I've been prescribed these two drugs along with others for severe depression and an anxiety disorder of some undetermined type. Your post was useful to me in allaying my fears of what horrible side-effects I would get from Seroquel, after reading the medical descriptions in the PDR.
Zyprexa did not cause me to twitch, but I did have cravings for sweets my weight increased by 10%(gained 16 lbs.). Mimi

>Hi Mimi,
> I suppose it depends on what you are taking it for. I tried both for bipolar disorder. In terms of side-effects, seroquel was much nicer to me. I didn't experience any weight gain (no insatiable craving for food, either), it was less sedating, and my body didn't twitch at all like it would every 20 or 30 seconds when I was taking zyprexa. I was taking zyprexa in combo with several other meds, so take this for what it's worth.
