Quetiapine for sleep

Thread starter #1
I just ordered some from relableRX through your link. I ordered the 25mg and the 50mg, very good price. I will post my results. I have a question. When using your method of chewing the tab, do you need to take it an empty stomach?

I finally got my Quetiapine for sleep from reliableRX, my order got inspected in customs and rejected. Reliable sent me a new order and I finally got it yesterday. The same day I had my wellness physical, my doctor talk me out of using it and recommended Trazodone 50mg. She told she's had good success with patients using Trazodone 50mg to 150mg. Supposed you don't never need to increase the dose and it's not habit forming. So I'm wondering anyone tried Trazodone?

Trazodone did nothing for me, other than make me feel like a zombie the next day. I used zolpidem effectively for years but I've built up a tolerance to it and it is getting less effective, I'm hoping to try quetiapine soon.

Quitiapine in low doses of 25-50mg can be prescribed for sleep. You need to be aware that this drug is an antipsychotic when prescribed in high doses, and a bipolar med at moderate doses.medium doses. It's ok to buy from an overseas pharmacy, just be sure that your MD gives you a prescription. This can be a dangerous drug.

You are better off looking into some natural remedies for sleep ailment. Most of us here want a quick fix, but these “sleep meds” are powerful and sleep is an off label use for quitiapine and trazadone, and therefore more dangerous than one would think.

I'm planning on trying Trazodone 50mg for sleep. I started using 3mg of melatonin for sleep again, it seems to be working pretty good. I feel I need to get a good night sleep to be at the top of my game at work. I'm not ready to retire yet.

I'm in the same boat at 64. I plan on working full time till 67 and part time till 70. I don't have sleep issues , but I am an early to bed early to rise guy. Wife and I live a rural lifestyle and TV and a bad diet aren't in the equation. Very content with that and happy. I think if it isn't broke then why try to fix it?

Have you tried lowering your thyroid hormone dose? I found that following the usual STTM recommendations of using NDT only, getting TSH down near 1, free T3 and freeT4 toward the upper end of the range, etc, just totally wrecks any hope of me getting a decent nights sleep. I've switched to a low dose of levothyroxine and sleep much better even though on paper my thyroid labs are much worse.

I am planning on trying it and will post my results. It comes with my doctor's recommendation, I'm surprised how popular is of a sleeping aid it is.

I still haven't optimize my thyroid and still working on that with my lipidologist. I don't know if I ever get my thyroid panel in a good range.

I just happened to see your thread on Trazadone for sleep. (I haven't been on this sight for a while). Anyways, I have taken many prescription drugs over the last 12 years for my insomnia. Trazadone worked fairly well for me except for the bazaar dreams that I was having. My dreams were extremely vivid while taking Trazadone which wasn't a problem for me. The problem became the bazaar and rather evil nature of the dreams which was enough for me to discontinue. I also experienced some short term memory issues that were less than when I take Ambien on a regular basis but nevertheless I did deal with some short term memory issues.I have a friend that takes Trazadone and it seems to work well for her. Most recently, I was taking Buspar. It was working very well for several months and then became completely ineffective despite raising the dosage. I am experimenting with ashwaganda and liquid melatonin at the moment. I'm at least falling asleep but the quality of sleep is about a 6 out of 10. I was talking with a doc that takes ashwaganda for sleep and she said it takes 6 months before it is really effective. I'm actually visiting a sleep specialist next week so I'll keep you posted.

The pain doc I work for prescribes it.
Muscle relaxant and help for sleep.
We haven't seen any habit-forming side effects from it or anything like that.

Be careful with quetiapine(Seroquel) as it has many side effects. Weight gain and increases in blood sugar and triglycerides are common. I experienced all of these after taking Seroquel in doses of 50-100 mg/day for 4 years. It worked great for sleep, but then I switched doctors and the new one immediately took me off of it after showing me the long list of side effects.
So what did you do instead?
