okay i am on a few medications and i take seroqel 150mg at bedtime i use it for sleep but for other uses a well one for intrusive thoughts which i feel i need a higer dose but after seeing the side effects and the risk i don't want it anymore i prefer getting off of it. and asking for a safer and something that can help with the ocd intrusive thoughts. i do have an appointment coming up soon with my pdoc. i also take mirtapinze for sleep as well. what are some good medication alternatives for seroqel ?

There are several commonly prescribed atypical antipsychotic drugs currently on the market, including:
Abilify.
Geodon.
Risperdal.
Seroquel.
Symbyax, and.
Zyprexa.
