Quetiapine for sleep issues

I am wondering if there is anyone out there who takes meds to help them sleep? I don't like sleeping pills, but I seem to go through cycles where I just don't sleep. I always fall asleep easily but wake up after two or three hours and then can't sleep for a variety of reasons. Sometimes I get very anxious and my mind just won't "shut down". Then I end up feeling really sore (hips,shoulders and neck) it is very hard to decide which comes first. The result is often getting by on only 2-4 hrs of sleep. It's so frustrating! GP gave me a
anti- psychotic called Quetiapine as a sleep aide. The dosage is very minimal (25mg) and it seems to help marginally. Anyone have any experience with this? Any thoughts on acupuncture? My Rheumy says it makes some people feel better.
