Hello, I assume you meant to say that it is the seroquel which is the anti-psychotic and which would be changed. I probably had not made it clear in my question, but I had assumed that the seroquel would be stopped, and replaced by the avanza (mirtazapine) ie having a combination of 2 anti-depressants, (sertraline and mirtazapine), rather than an anti-depressant and an anti-psychotic. I was not considering the introduction of a third medication. I was wanting your comment on the efficacy of this (new combination) as a means of managing and quelling the diarrhoea (as seemingly had been suggested some time ago on this site to another similar question). I await your reply. Thank you.
Thank you for this very detailed response. My concern is that there are not many anti-depressants that do not have diarrhoea as a possible side-effect. If there is one that in your experience, works well with patients with a particular sensitivity to diarrhoea, I would appreciate to know which med that is. Thank you again for your thoughtful response. I will be giving you a high rating.
