hi! Its common for seroquel to be intensely sedating. It could become less sedating with time; however, some sedation will probably remain. Geodon is a viable option, but it can also cause sedation.

I guess another option would be Moban (molindole)..its a "typical" antipsychotic, but apparently has "atypical" properties, including some antidepressant action. I think the TD risk is supposed to be lower than other typicals, but I'm not sure about that.

Provigil certainly is an option; it can reduce sedation and maybe provide some AD benefits without negating the Seroquel.

Reducing the dose could be an option. Also, you could try focusing more on Lithium and possibly anticonvulsants as mood stabilizers, instead of using a neuroleptic. Some people benefit from Lithium+(depakote, lamictal, trileptal...) combos.

Good luck!
