I have Bipolar Disorder and I take regular Seroquel 200 mg and Geodon 80 mg. I sleep 12 hours. Being a college student, I feel I sleep too much. My doctor wants me to try Seroquel XR. Will Seroquel XR make me sleep less and become less drowsy in the morning? When I try to get 8 hours of sleep, I feel so drowsy when I try to wake so I end up going back to sleep. I can't wake up for my morning class and missed a lot of lectures.
Hi, i take Seroquel 200mg XR, and i have a pretty good sleep routine now. I don't necessarily find it easy getting up in the morning, but i can if i want/need to. However when i first started taking the medication i was so tired, all of the time. Waking was so difficult and i also felt lethargic during most of the day, it took me a few months or more to finally stabilise. So if you haven't been taking Seroquel for very long, you could find that you just need more time to adjust to it...
