Hi! I'll be glad to be of help with this issue.
I can imagine how worrisome this situation must be for you. Doctors don't typically tell patients before starting medications about side effects. This has some valid reasons for doing so: in the medical/mental health world we are always concerned about "self fulfilling prophecies". If we tell people about possible adverse reactions, they become hypersensitive to those possibilities and often the anxiety produced engenders those reactions or some other problem. Studies have shown this effect, so doctors tend to just avoid the subject.
Seroquel does cause anxious nervous reactions on initial onset in quite a few people. That is common and is not considered a dangerous or problematic side effect. In most patients this goes away within a few days to 2 weeks at most. I have had one person in my office I was working with in therapy who had this side effect get worse over 2-3 weeks. It is still unclear to me whether this was his anxiety building up and obsessing on the medication or if it truly was the Seroquel. But in such a circumstance he did switch to a different medication. So, you see, there is no need to be overly worried about this at this time because if it does not settle, then there are alternatives you and your doctor can use.
Okay, I wish you the very best!
