Don’t know if any of you will remember but due to cutbacks my prescription for 600mg seroquel XL was changed to normal immediate release. On the normal release I took 300mg in the morning and 300mg at night.
Boy - that stuff is sedating. I mean falling back to sleep for 4 hours every morning after my first dose. This is VERY different to the XL - on which I had little sedation.
Over time the morning sedation got a little bit better but I was basically running off caffeine. Anyway I just bought a pill cutter and have for the last week have been splitting the seroquel to 4 x 150mg/day. This has been life changing in relation to the sedation. I feel a lot more alert and the need for caffeine has been reduced. Also I take other meds 4 x a day and have a doset box which keeps me straight.
