MEDICATION: Best to discuss medication with your Psychiatrist. If uncomfortable with your Dr. consult another for a second opinion. Have a physical exam by a Dr. to determine if you have a physical illness. Consult with a Clinical Psychologist for psychotherapy with ZOOM sessions. Fears and anxiety could be heightened due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Stay safe & hopeful to elevate your immune system.

See below: Seroquel is a powerful anti-psychotic medication. In my opinion, it should not be prescribed or administered for insomnia. I consider it a dangerous medication; not to be used in this indication.
