It makes me sleep very hard and the next day I feel awful. Can you tell me anything about this combination?
Hi, fay! Antipsychotics are often prescribed to *boost* the effectiveness of antidepressants and help regulate moods in their own right. Of all the APs, Seroquel is most often reserved for Bipolar disorder or Bipolar tendencies.
I've been taking Seroquel for about a year now and I wouldn't want to live without it ~ it's the only med that's ever worked for me. But the sleepiness and morning fog is almost unavoidable. I take my dose in the evening and prepare to be zonked in 1/2hr, and I have to plan on getting a solid 7-9hrs of sleep. You'll probably adjust a little over time and the morning fog won't be as bad. The effects actually DECREASE for many people as they begin taking HIGHER doses.
Best wishes, and always feel free to post any questions you may have ~ we're all here because we've all been through stuff and we want to help others with advice and personal experiences.
