she will take her pill at 11pm, sleep until 11am, stay up for about 1hr, go back to bed for a few hour "nap" before work. She normally work 5pm-9:30PM. Will this eventually get better or is this how this medication works?
Hi, i take Seroquel which is in the same drug class (antipsychotic) and i felt very much the same way when i first started the medication. I was very sleepy, and a bit detached from reality, i think this is pretty 'normal'. You daughter should stabilise in time, but it can take a while. If you/your daughter are very concerned, or if these side effects are prolonged, she should speak with her doctor...
