I've been taking 400-450 mg of Seroquel for over 10 years. I was for
tunate to be treated by a very good Neuro Psychiatrist who has now retired. While taking more than 400mg can cause insomnia. Lower doses of 50-100mg can act as a sleep aid. I function best by taking it all at bedtime along with a sleep aid. When I had to find a new doctor, the first thing he did was screw with my Meds. I should have listened to my instincts, and changed only one med at a time. He changed me too 400mg at nigh

Yes after taking it you will become impaired, it is a very strong tranquilizer. I started on 200ml per day, 25 ml 4 times a day, 100ml at bedtime it took about a year or even 2 before I learned to function while on this

I am feeling the same way, I have been taking 50mg for two weeks a the doctor raised me to 50 mg at bed and 25 mg in the morning. I am fatigued, down, not able to think clearly. This is crazy, I feel that I'm go into depression because of my symptoms.

The light switch
Thanks for the thoughtful post. I was also an eldest. Given my emotional makeup, being very responsible, always the good girl the responsibility of caring for siblings, carrying out chores, attempting to keep peace & unsuccessfully lead my charges to pull their share of the work at a young age took a toll on me too.
I was shy at school & moved every other year. I found relief in theater arts playing characters not me. Later I was discouraged from pursuing theater as a career. Music & books f
