It is a very low dose but they may want to build it up slowly. I was on the max dose for a couple of years 800mg then 650mg for a further 5 years till finally coming off it due to health reasons. You need regular blood tests liver and glucosewith this as it can lead to diabetes (which i now have) but other than that i did not have any psychosis

i dont think ill notice anything at such a low dose. the pysch didnt talk about any plans to up the dose either..... ive been relying on only celexa for years with no real relief. it might work 25 percent if im lucky

I also started at 25mg and I felt the effects immediately. I quickly increased the dosage over a couple of months and now I take between 50-300mg as needed.

25 mg is a very low dose of Seroquel. I take 200 mg which is still considered a low dose. I believe people can take up to 800 mg. Maybe they gave you 25 mg to help with sleep. I am not sure. But it is definitely a very low dose.
