Discussions that mention seroquel

Sleep Disorders board


my shrink has prescribed me seroquel (25mg) for sleep, and it's worked a-m-a-z-i-n-g-l-y!

it's an atypical antipsychotic, and the usual dose range for people with those types of afflictions is upwards of 400mg/day. it's an 'offlabel' type of prescription for insomnia. i told my dad about it (also a doctor), and he has also used it for patients with bad insomnia with excelent results. way better than all the others, and the rebound sleep isn't nearly as nasty to achieve, and no nasty withdrawel. believe me when i say it works like a charm :)

peace.
