    Hi,

    I take Quetiapine. I guess the answer depends upon why you have been prescribed it. I use Quetiapine to relax, and they certainly help with that, in the hope that I will sleep, but I require a much higher dose to actually get to sleep! Everyone is different so there are no guarantees that because a medication works for one person, it will work for another.

    I hope it helps you.

    Feel free to pm me if you have any other questions.

    Been on them for 10 months now, my daily dose is 400mg and it has helped me in many ways since I've been taking it.

    Thanks everyone for your replies.

    I am taking these for Anxiety, but they really make me feel tired in the morning, but they do make me sleep. My Psychiatrist said I should take 25mg at night at 25mg in the morning, Ive tried it but in the day, I could not concentrate at work just needed to be a sleep.

    Do they make any of you this sleepy.

    Thanks again x

    Being sleepy is an common side effect of this drug. I believe it should pass with time but have never taken the drug myself so couldn't be 100% sure. Maybe one of the members who have taken the drug could give you there experience.

    Sedation is one of the main side effects with this but it does get easier once your body is used to the medication. I have to take 200mg in the morning and 200 mg at night but the morning dose I only take when needed.
    Stick with them as they have done wonders for my BiPolar but if after a while you still feel sleepy in the day mention it to your pdoc.
