Tell me more about Seroquel, what class of drugs it is in, if its addicting, side effects, etc., so I can have more info before I see the sleep doc again. Thanks!

> I've been on both Ambien & Sonata at different time periods. I found Ambien to be more effective for me. As I understand it, they are very similar; however, Sonata seems to be the weaker of the two (at least to me). That may be at least part of the reason why you cannot sleep the nights you take the Sonata. It makes sense if you are alternating it with a more potent med (Ambien). I have also been on Zanaflex (up to 5/night) and it usually puts me out on moderate to high-end doses.
> I develop tolerance on Ambien every time. I also developed tolerance on Sonata.
> Has your doctor mentioned Seroquel to you? I too have bad insomnia; I've been on many meds that help with sleep (Valium, Xanax, Ativan, Serax, Klonopin, Zanaflex, Flexeril, Norflex, Elavil, Trazodone, Atarax, Ambien, Sonata...) & Seroquel was definitely the most potent 'sleep aid' for me. It knocked me out, big time. Like, made even 'fighting' sleep almost impossible. I cannot fathom staying awake on it (if you're not schizophrenic that is, which is it's on-label use).
> You might want to ask your dr. about it--it's not scheduled, either, and you might be able to obtain samples of it (I did).
