Hi, wilma! My personal experience is that the regular formulation puts me to sleep fast, I sleep through the night, and I wake up clear-headed. I had trouble getting to sleep at all on XR and I was pretty foggy in the morning.
I'm glad that it helps with sleeping too, but it is a medication prescribed for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Best wishes, WCV
I have taken the Seroquel, now on the XR (prescribed 100mg), I have no quality of life because of this medication, the side effects are unimaginable. I have chronic insomnia, RH, and Fibromyalgia. Why any doctor would prescribe this medication for Insomnia is beyond me. This is an evil drug (in my case) and I have lost all faith in the medical practice for putting me on and off so many medications and none will take responsibility to help me off. I am tapering off best I can (on 75mg) my original prescription was 300mg (slept for days) my side effects as I taper off are the same if not worse. I encourage you to seek other medications for insomnia, and not by a psych-doctor. They will only continue to prescribe psychotropic meds. as this is their specialty.
