Misty2010,
Although Seroquel makes most people drowsy, it has been known to cause insomnia in others. It's actually an antipsychotic used for schizphrenia, bipolar disorder, mania, and depression and has been known to help with obsessive-compulsive disorder, agitation, and dementia. If you need a sedative, I'd ask the doctor to prescribe one instead of messing around with a benzo such as Seroquel--- they can be highly addictive. Hope this helps.
