  • Psychiatrist is reducing Seroquel dosage and my depression is increasing. Reason for decrease is pre diabetic sugar levels, but diabetes is in my family.I read anti depressants can increase depression in bipolar 2 patients. The studies I've read shoe no clear answers. How do I decide? I am tired of being non functional.
