Hi
I'm on Olanzapine, whih is very similar to quetiepine in that it is an anti psychotic.
I take it for anxiety.

I was given this a few months back and it made me really sleepy but it'supposed to be very effective with severe anxiety.

I take it for social anxiety and insomnia connected with ASD. It helps a lot, but it also makes me drugged and sleepy the day after.

I have been on quetiapine for about 7 months. My dose was 200mg but I have now reduced it to 50mg over a slow taper. I just take it at night now for sleep but my aim is to get off it completely
