I just want to know if I were to take 50mg seroquel frequently, is it just a sleep seditive or a sleep seditive narcotic? Is seroquel a narcotic?? Main question here again, IS ANY DOSAGE OF SEROQUEL OR SEROQUEL ITSELF A "NARCOTIC?" Or what they call a "controlled substance?" Is seroquel a narcotic and controlled substance? Or is seroquel just a plain perscribed sleep medication that is none of the above questions? Please help me figure this "pill classification" out. Thanks much, Manda

Where on earth did you get info that Seroquel ,which is an Atypical Anti Psychotic. It is used to treat Bipolar Disorder. There is NO NARCOTIC in Seroquel. If it contained ANY Narcotic, it would be a controlled substance. I have been taking Seroquel for years. My current dosage is 1000 mg to 1400 inch mg Daily for Bipolar Disorder. It sure does not make me sleep either. I cannot tell, why you are asking about a tiny dose of Seroquel ? I strongly advise you, not to take Seroquel unless you are Bipolar. Also, DO NOT drink Alcohol with Seroquel. If you want more information , I will gladly give it to you.
Seroquel (quetiapine) is an antipsychotic medicine used to treat schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder, with an antidepressant for Major Depressive disorder, and is also commonly prescribed, usually at the lower doses, for sleep disorders. This is because the side effects are sleepiness, drowsiness and mild sedation.
It is not a narcotic at any dose and it is not a controlled substance.
No seroquel at any dosage level is not a narcotic. I’m in recovery, with 4 years clean and sober and have been prescribed seroquel at various dosage levels for many years. Trust me my Dr would NEVER prescribe me narcotics
My doctor has prescribed 3 x 100 seroquel at night before bed. Yes it makes you tired but also has the effect of making you huugry which is very hard to satisfy. This side effect has added 20-25kg to my weight. Also causes a drunk/stoned effect that effects balance.
No seroquel is not a narcotic. Nor is it controlled. Then again its not primarily a sleep medication. It is a second generation anti psychotic. A side effect will help you sleep.
