Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. There really is no such thing as "how much" of one substance will help treat your symptoms of Depression. This is because our body chemistries are different so each of us responds to the medication differently as well. In addition, there is also the factors of how severe your depression is and how much of the Lamictal you are taking. For some patients, they respond well to 100mg/day of the Seroquel and for others they need 500mg/day. So right now it would be best for you to start at a low dose of either 50 or 100mg of the Seroquel and then just gradually increase the dose by 50mg every week till your depressive symptoms stop and that is when you will find out the dosage that is needed to lessen your depression.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
