Quetiapine , and cognitive Impairment
Everyone has different reasons for insomnia and everyone's body reacts differently to meds. Its good to share experiences, but you have to learn for yourself what works best. Sometimes doctors are no help, other than providing access. I hadn't fallen asleep without meds for 15 years and tried most meds mentioned, along with every herb, otc, nonlegal alternatives. I can finally now fall asleep most nights on my own, but wake up in 3-4 hours. But that's progress. Good luck to you all.

I have been dealing with MDD and I started taking Seroquel a few weeks ago, 100 mg at bedtime. In addition, I have started taking Effexor; initially 37.5 mg twice a day, just switched to 50mg twice a day.
I feel as though I am just coming out of anesthesia, pretty much the entire day. I can't function normally. My head is in a fog and I don't feel safe driving. This is nuts. How am I supposed to hold down a job?
I am hoping hoping HOPING my body adjusts to these 2 meds, otherwise, I am asking

"It really doesn't make sense to me how drugs such as Quetiapine achieve their supposed "anti-psychotic" effects.

My first impression would be that antagonism of 5-HT2a receptors would worsen the negative symptoms of a psychosis by causing confusion and cognitive dissonance.

Also, wouldn't the anticholinergic effects of such drugs contribute to psychosis? Short-term memory impairment is perhaps the main underlying attribute of a psychosis -- wouldn't anticholinergic activity worsen problems

There are multiple anti-depressant medications. Consult your prescribing physician on your reactions to your medication. Keeping a journal helps, & will aide in getting you on the right dose or prescription.

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

I have been on Quetiapine for about 10 years now, it does take a long time to get used to the effects of this drug both good and bad. One thing to remember is, you are used to the way your mind worked before taking the drug, and have to learn how your mind works after taking it. 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.

antipsychotic meds are too much risk to be used off-label
i'm not a comedian  |  January 13, 2014
Its not a sleep aid , you should try something approved for sleep , its a anti psychotic , if your not psychotic don't take it ,

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
