Upping dose, when do effects kick in?

Hi everyone,

First post here. My pdoc is increasing my daily dose of quetiapine (seroquel) from 300mg to 400mg per day. When can I expect the effects and side effects to take place? Like will it take weeks after upping dose to feel the effects, or will it work immediately? I’ve been on this medication for about a year - dose has been going up and down, but this is the only time I’ve been on the same dose for long enough for me to feel like I’m acquainted with it.

Hi! Nice to meet you @radioman :slight_smile:
I don’t think you will have bad side effects from 300 to 400mg Seroquel. I’m on other antipsychotic so I’m not sure. But welcome to this forum :sun_with_face:
