  • 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.

  • Even on a small dose of quietapine modified release tablets I gained 20% body mass in 18 months. Exercise with this medication is a must!

  • 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..
