I'm not going to get into an argument about how many people do well on seroquel and who don't, thats beyond the scope of anybody here. With any psychiatric medication, there will be those who respond well and those who don't.

Well, I personally don't recomend more than 25mg but, whatever works (or doesn't for ya).

Well thats great. If you can manage to wait 6 weeks than you're not dealing with severe GAD IMHO.

There really are no safe meds. My neighbours endo said that zoloft long term use w. weight gain probably caused her diabetes. I didn't sleep more than 2 hours at a time for a month on zoloft. The relative safety margin is largely dependant on your own individual reaction to a medication.
