You could try replacing the seroquel with zyprexa. Try 2.5mg Zyprexa at first, with a likely targe range of 5.0 to 7.5mg. I think it could work out for you a lot better than seroquel. In clinical studies they are finding that there is something special about prozac and zyprexa together. This combo has worked well for me, while just about everything else out there either made me worse or had too many side effects. The prozac plus zyprexa combo is a real good one. Dump the seroquel in favor of zyprexa.

> I was just diagnosed with cyclothymia. I was being treated for the last 3 mo. with major depression and anxiety (different Dr.) I am on 20mg Prozac and 25-50mg Seroquel at night for sleep. My problem is I am so down. I was having hypomania until the Seroquel and now I feel that I have no energy or intrest in anything. It is as if I need something to pick me up. I see my Dr. next week so any suggestions would be appreciated.
