Seroquel (quetiapine) s/e? See your psychiatrist to assess for side effects asap. Seroquel (quetiapine) can cause a physical restlessness with pacing, "restless legs" type of agitation that is often mistaken for "anxiety." This side effect can be treated, but needs to be evaluated by your doc face- to- face. Ask your psychiatrist to assess for this side effect and if present to consider a lower dose or specific med to help with this.
Akathisia, serotonin. syndrome, other side effects, or progression of illness. Seroquel can occasionally cause intense restlessness or a feeling of wanting to "crawl out of your skin." Intense irritability or anxiety often a component. A trial of Benadryl could provide substantial relief if so. Too much serotonin is not necessarily best and both Seroquel and Prozac affect those neurotransmitter systems. Reduce dose.
