has anyone used Seroquel for sleep? I'm on the lowest dose and I think I'm doing ok on it, but I did some research and the internet says that it can be abused/its harmful.

      Yes! You will get very hungry right before bed and eat a ton in a stupor then pass out Not good for weight loss Also you are not conscious of what you are eating Trazadone, Zyprexa, and rapid + slow release Melatonin are great I tried CBD isolate gummies and loved them but I'm in sobriety so I can't

      for me it hasn’t been something i’ve ever felt the need to abuse, and that’s coming from someone who’s had multiple addictions. it’s helped me SO much with sleep and the increased amount of sleep has really helped my mental health so i’m my opinion, it isn’t dangerous.

      I am on Seroquel, but I'm on a lot of medication that should make me drowsy, and still have frequent insomnia. I took ambien for about a week. That stuff kept me awake for 3 days. Like, 72 hours 3 days. 2 of those days were 12 hour night shifts at a hospital. And I was so alert and with it. It was crazy. I've taken Lorazepam, and it made me a little wired. I tend to have the opposite effect on a lot of medications than the intended use. I take seroquel as a 3 medication combination for intracranial hypertension. IH is very painful and noisy if you aren't on medication for it. Sometimes it affects me even with medication. I'm thankful for the medicine, whether I sleep or not.

      I'm on a relatively high dose of Seroquel at the moment. 200 mg a night for sleep, but I've had a very long history of insomnia. I can say that I've been on the medication for three or so years, and that it works really well for me for about 6 months, and then I start having issues where I'm not sleeping through the night, or having trouble falling asleep again, or having fully sleepless nights, and so my doctor has up to the dose each time that happens. Currently, I'm also taking remeron at night to help with my sleep, but that's a very new medication so I'm not sure how much it's actually helping yet. I might have to go off of the Seroquel, because there's a chance that it's making my PMDD worse, but my doctor's going to do a blood test to find out for sure. Basically, I think it works really well, at least it has for me, way better than anything else I've taken. I agree with what's been said above which is as long as you take a medicine how it's prescribed, and pay attention to what your body is telling you, you shouldn't have a problem. If you don't abuse the prescription, or if you know that it's not working for you, or you have concerns about some side effects, talk to your doctor. If it's not right for you, try something else. At this point, I think I would rather try a different medication, than to up the dosage of the Seroquel again.

      That's true for all medicines really, just make sure you understand healthy dosages and uses, and talk to a doctor about it (if possible)

      My wife was on it for a short time. It didn’t work well for her. She slept amazingly but she found it caused terrible mood swings. We are both on lorazepam now as a sleep aid but I’ve heard great things about seroquel if it works well for you.
