Is this good for sleep? They gave me seroquel but my insurance won't pay. I've very weird about meds used for other diagnoses.
Hi, Risperdal work in the same way that Seroquel do, so hopefully you will find success with it. I understand how you feel about medications being used off label. I do think that antipsychotics are a very 'strong' alternative to sleeping tablets. You might want to talk to your doctor about Amitriptyline? It is an antidepressant that has been around for many years, and can be used to treat pain and help aid sleep also. I take it for those reasons. The dose can be easily adjusted to the individual person. Worth considering maybe?
