In my opinion, it should not be used for sleep for anyone. It is an antipsychotic with some serious and incurable side effects. Medication for sleep should be used for sleep. If it was my loved one it wouldn't happen.

Hi, Pappa! No, not unless there is an underling disorder such as Bipolar II, Borderline Personality disorder, or schizophrenia. Seroquel is a potent antipsychotic and should not be capriciously used for minor problems.

There are many choices, both OTC and prescription, of sleep care products.

Best wishes, WCV

Hi, there are a lot of conflicting views around this subject. Some people have benefited greatly from Seroquel use for aiding sleep. However, i tend to lean towards the other guys who have answered here, and say it is a strong antipsychotic medication that should be kept for use in this area of treatment
