Seroquil and sleep

I have a question. I take 25 to 50 mg of seroquel at bed to help me fall asleep but I still wake up at least 3 to 4 times a night. Does anyone know what else I can ask my doc about as far as staying asleep??

Ask your doc about Zyprexa. I sleep up to 10 hours without waking up. I hear the same complaint about seroquel all the time. My brother takes it and has the same problem.

Bangbang is right about zyprexa. It knocked me out for ten to twelve hours solid if I did not have to be awake the next morning. I am coming off of it now because of some side effects, but it would probably do wonders for your sleep.

You may just need a higher dose of Seroquel. Most of the antipsychotics do make people tired.
