Seroquel is awful :(

I've taken a low dose for sleep several times but after last night I'm so done with it. I have been in a fog/hangover all day. It just will not wear off. The only sleep meds that really help me sleep aren't worth it; I feel terrible the next day. Any experiences with Seroquel or similar meds? I know, though, that everyone responds differently to certain medications.

When I took seroquel I gained a lot of weight. I wouldn't think that would be a go to med for sleep problems.

I work in the mental health field and I would say 95 percent or more of my clients love seroquel.
Try a smaller dosage. Or maybe just melatonin?

I took seroquel for 1 month. I decided I didn't like the way it made me feel and just stopped taking it. I didn't wean myself and had TERRIBLE withdrawal.

I almost died from taking that. Dr wouldn't listen to me when I told her it made me feel funny. After 4 days I had to be rushed to the hospital via ambulance because I was having a severe allergic reaction to it.

I think it works on mood more at higher doses but I'm taking a low dose (50 mg) for sleep, which is very sedating. I feel like a zombie...I did sleep, though.

Ambien made me very forgetful the next day. It was bad. I also have Lunesta but I don't get such a great sleep with it. I wish I could sleep like a normal person:(

Seroquel was hell for me. I was a zombie 24/7 until I stopped taking it.
