  • Take it at night-it makes you sleepy. Do not drink a lot of alcohol; it makes the dry mouth worse and affects your mood the next day in a negative way. DO NOT miss a dose. You will experience withdrawal symptoms very quickly.

  • I take it at night to help with my Insomnia from PTSD (nothing else really worked). I have found that if I eat food with a lot of fat for dinner (like ice cream) then the drug barely works.

  • Take early in the evening and get used to the idea of eight hours of sleep a night. In the first couple of weeks expect to be extremely drowsy.

  • It serves it's purpose well. IT is less expensive due to having a generic alternitive. Unfortunately it does have side effects that you do not just "get used to". I have been afraid to change medications due to not having any relapse at all for almost 10 years.

  • Presribed as alternative to benzos for anxiety). Bad choice... Gave me and hours panic about 1/2 hour after taking. Super weight gain. Night sweats (had to keep pillows in rotation because of sweating). Loss of breath just to climb a set of stairs. Stroked out... ... not sure if it was the seroquel, but years later heard stories of seroquel and strokes..

  • If you do not suffer from Mania or Insomnia this medication is not for you. The term 'zombie' is commonly used to describe the sedation and lack of mental clarity which commonly accompany this medication. This is a fair and accurate description. For sleep, it is a great medication. For Mania, I can't imagine being overly upbeat while under the influence of this drug. Non 'maniacs'/insomniacs there ARE better medications in this class which still allow you to function.

  • It worked well with viibryd the anti depressant. As far as drowsiness, you will become more tolerant the longer you take it and won't be as tired.
