I take 950mg at night.. and I'll probably be dozing in the afternoon since I decided to stay up. But my only partial solution is to take the Seroquel at least 2 hours before I actually want to sleep. And then consistently go to bed at that time every day or earlier. Varying into the night will just push ahead what I know is a stupifying wakeup from Seroquel and the urge to go nap. Its really the only way.

If you can stand caffeine, which I can't much, you could try bi-daily dosing, but it makes most people a zombie in the afternoon I think. Its been shown once nightly dosing is as successful for treatment.
