> The rx is for 25mg to start...I want to change my sleep med (trazodone) to something and still get benefit of a mood stabilizer (currently have lamictal but its driving me nuts with anxiety). These atypicals make me nervous...I dont like the diabetes risk or the cognitive impairment (would like to start back at univ and need my thinking).
> > What's a low dose? I started at 25 mg and it was sedating at first, then it wore off. Now I take 300 mg and it works just dandy as a sedative. It's like being shot with an elephant dart. In terms of mood improvements...maybe, hard to say. Nothing dramatic, at least for me.

Seroquel for sleep? Is this a joke? If you have trouble sleeping you should try drugs specifically for that, not neuroleptics. Diabetes is the least you should be concerned about with Seroquel.

It may knock you out for a very long time, but it does so forcibly as a means of control. A "psychotic" person is much less "dangerous" all of a sudden eh?

Seroquel does its job very well; your job should be to seek solace in an alternative that is fathoms less dangerous, such as ambien.

Also, please don't stop taking neuroleptics suddenly.
