tek Posted October 31, 2007 Share Posted October 31, 2007 Pdoc gave me a sample pack of Seroquel for "those nights" where I just can't get to sleep. Having recently tried Lunesta, and hating it, I decided to go for Seroquel last night. I took 25mg and felt pretty drowsy within 20 minutes...turned the light off in just under 40 minutes. Don't remember waking up once before the alarm went off nearly 9 hours later. Only problem is: I needed to get up when that damned alarm went off! I hit snooze twice, THEN I GOT UP AND RESET IT to an hour later. I haven't had problems getting up since returning to work this week and needless to say I was bummed. Now I'm working from home like a loser, when I really needed to go into the office today. Anyway, I was still so sedated and whatever you want to call it until my morning meds kicked in (Provigil and Wellbutrin were probably the key helpers). I mean, so out of it that my vision was trembling...if that makes sense. Since I was supposed to help get my kids ready for daycare, that was totally unnacceptable. Other than this excessive sedation, Seroquel kicked ass in terms of getting me a great night's sleep so I need some help fine-tuning the usage. I'd love to use this every other night, when I don't have watch of the 5-month-old baby (who wakes 3+ times). One would be amazed at how a good sleep at least half the time makes up for the other half of the time when you get horrible, crappy, interrupted sleep. So, guys, give me your input! What are some ways I can take Seroquel that will lessen the morning sedation? Crap, I STILL feel out of sorts and it's been over 12 hours since I took it. How long does it take for this stuff to work out of your system, anyway? Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
