    Comment:
    I have been taking Seroquel nightly for 2+ years. PROS: I sleep much better, my mood is more stable, and I rarely enter into manic periods. I am almost a functioning human being again. CONS: (1) I feel groggy for about 12-13 hours after taking any dose (25-150 mgs), which makes mornings feel nearly impossible, and has caused me to miss several important appointments. (2) About an hour after ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on Seroquel XR for 7 years. I have taken as much as 600 mg., for depression and manic episodes. It saved my life as I was suicidally depressed. It went away really quick.

    I was put on this drug before Thanksgiving of 2013. I was on Lexapro and Abilify before hand and did not like those at all. I was put on this for being "bi polar" and to help me sleep. The first two weeks I felt so much better and could sleep better. However, I soon found that I was sleeping all of the time and my mood just got worse. I was a straight A student who always paid attention ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    Prescribed for insomnia-related depression. Boosted from 50mg.regular, to 100mg. regular, for a minute. Just when the sleep started gettin' back to normal, Dr. upped to 150mg.XR. Since beginning it, I've had less-than sleeps, am cranky and irritable, especially in the morning. I have weight gain and am not happy about that. This is not helping the insomnia and is instead just making me ang ... Show Full Comment
