Hi Barb,
I was at 6mg (1/4 of 25mg) for a long time. and that was enough. But that was also with Depakote, then Lithium. After that, when I went off of everything except Seroquel, i upped to 25-75mg per night to sleep.
So in the case of tolerance development or not, I'm not sure because a lot of it depends on the cycling of moods and with what med combo I'm taking. Right now, I shouldn't need the 20mg i take b/c the Paxil and Trileptal are sedating, but I do take that much. So maybe there is a slight tolerance build up. If I take the 1/4 tab, like before, it doesn't really work. I am quite awake. I have a horrible pill cutter, so it never perfectly cuts the pill, so I normally end up with approx. 20mg of a 25mg.

I don't see any reason why I should quit taking it. I love my sleep too much! Hope it works out for you.
and good to hear you're not imbibing too much in the swamp water. I have been, but steadily (1-3 gl.), nothing too much at one time, but pretty consisently with maybe 2 nights off a week! But I can feel the build up of it with slight fatique, not quite as clear, and no inspiration, and slightly down.

Sit ups at dawn? yikes....! I maybe need to try that. I have to say I always have very intense vivid dreams, but I had that pre-meds anyway.
