I was seeing a lady for my sleeping problems and she prescribed Sertraline and later on, Seroquel. I forget the dosage for the former, but I was prescribed 50mg of Seroquel per night and was told to double it if it didn't work. She said it would help relax me and put me to sleep.

Long story short, I ended the medication because of negative side effects and poor performance. It was only long after that I realized that the brand name for Sertraline is Zoloft, a powerful anti-depressant, and Seroquel is used for people suffering from psychosis and severe anxiety disorders.

It may be of interest to note that she was constantly suggesting that I had depression (not true), and I made a point of telling her that I would not take medication for a disorder I did not have.

My question is this: in small doses, are Sertraline and Seroquel good sleep medications, enough so that her prescription would be justified? Or should I be super pissed off?
