Dear Sir, Quetiapine is a mood stabilizer and has been recommended for the treatment of depression. Some people may complain of feeling more sleepy, however this usually subsides on continued treatment. If you have any worries about the medicine, please talk to your psychiatrist. Please do not stop it without consulting your psychiatrist.

Quitiepine has anti depressant properties but at a higher dose than what you are taking. Quitiepine is an anti psychotic which are often given as augmentingbanti depressant activity. Nonharm taking them together.
