>I don't need to be sedated because I have no insomnia problems. At this point I thought I would try it for anxiety only since that seems to be a BIG problem for me! Hoping that maybe if I can get a handle on that that maybe other things may fall into place like even a micro ounce of mood control. I do not want to get into taking a whole big amount of this even past 50 mgs.

Well, it could help anxiety. Do you have a diagnosis or not really? 50mg is not a large amount by any means. You will initially find that even very low doses make you feel drowsy, but this tends to wear off if you take it continuously for a few weeks or more. I don't think it's a good idea to decide in advance what dose you will take. The dose will need to be adjusted according to how you are responding after several weeks of treatment. The effective dose of Seroquel is very variable from person to person and cannot be predicted in advance.

>My Dr. has not put me on the lamictal because I am afraid of taking it for the rash worry and because I am terrified of seizure withdrawl because I have a history of seizures....so here I sit.

I don't think you need to be afraid of Lamictal, it is usually well tolerated. Minor rashes are relatively frequent but serious rash is very uncommon. Withdrawal seizures are not a major issue with Lamictal, but if they do occur it is usually in people diagnosed with epilepsy who abruptly discontinue after taking a large dose on a regular basis.

Do let me know if you have any questions about either medication.
