> It definately takes care of the insomnia ... as in put me to sleep in like 20 minutes but it also gave me "strange" sleep.
--It gave me "strange" sleep as well, with vivid dreams & nightmares. I felt around 20-30 min. after taking it I was basically rendered unconscious! I couldn't fight sleep, my eyes just closed themselves, I swear.


> A couble of time a night I would wake up shivering and sweaty all over...>
--This has happened to me as well; it feels terrible. I've woken up covered in sweat from head-to-toe & my bed has been all sweaty too...but I'm not exactly sure why except I was having nightmares as well...


>In the end ... at about 50mg I got tired of the zombie feeling + I had to take it around 9AM to be able to get up at 6AM and go work which meant I basically had no life aside from work and sleep so I stopped taking it.
--I assume you meant to say 9 P.M. there, but I agree with what you've said! I also felt like a zombie after taking it, even at lower doses.

> I'd rather be an awake insomniac with on and off visual hallucinations and depersonalization rather than a zombie with no psychotic side effects.
--ME, TOO. I decided I'd rather not sleep than deal with the side effects of Seroquel, but I have never had problems w/psychosis...except minor hallucinations when i haven't obtained sufficient sleep in days...and i'd rather deal with THOSE than the side effects! I think I feel more tired after a long night's sleep w/Seroquel than going a few days without much/any sleep, for that matter!!
Best,
L.
