My older brother is 25 living with shizoprenia. He recently had a visit from his halfway home in marina ca. After taking his meds he passed out for 12 hours. I'm trying to find out if he needs to be this medicated.
Your brother is taking 2 400 mg of Seroquel, I'm guessing. That really isn't as much as it sounds like; I have seen others with 1000-1200mg a day. However, if HE thinks it is making him too sleepy, he can always talk with his doctor about lowering the dose or trying him on the Seroquel XR which is an extended release tablet that spreads the dose out throughout the day instead of all at once. Hope this helps.
