all right guys and gals,

need some help here. is it normal to feel like you are living in a fog for about three hours after waking up in the morning? i suspect it is from a drug i take called seroquel. i also have cottonmouth like you wouldn't believe. Shocked any advice would be much appreciated. respectfully, SM

Could be because of that, not sure. I know I get up in the morning, have my coffee and breakfast, take my meds and go back to bed. The meds knock me out so I have no choice.

Glory, the dry mouth thing is pissing me off I'm not always thirsty but it feels like it all the time and well it's just a pain, I think I'm going to have to get lifesavers or something, that probably wont work though because I think my salivary glands died-LOL!

it works well for me to get me to sleep

it does not help with my nightmares or night terrors

however there are lots of side effects listed that all of you should look up and see it taking it outweighs the risk

I'm supposed to be taking seroquel. However it costing $400 a bottle I stopped taking it a year ago. I took it to help sleeping as I was having issues falling asleep. You know, all those thoughts running through your head. Anyway, It's also an anti psychotic. Cotton mouth-like you wouldn't believe. I always kept a bottle of water close by. Waking up? Took me all day to shake it and by the time I started feeling like it was waning it was time to take another dose.
