Hi, justme! Seroquel is an antipsychotic medication used to treat schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder. It does have the effect of causing drowsiness, but it's not licenced as, or meant to be prescribed as a sleep aid. It also has to be used with extreme caution in the elderly.
Best wishes, WCV
I would not suggest seroquel for sleep at your age... that is a strong antipsychotic. I even wonder why a dr. would perscribe that for you? caution would be very important becasuse the side effects of this med may do more harm than good in your case. I would talk to the dr. about the use of this drug in your case.
