Even though Seroquel is classfied as an Anti-Psychotic drug, doctors are now using it ALSO as a treatment for anxiety (you can ask your professors to confirm).

When it is used for AP, it is prescibed in much higher doses (600-900mg). For anxiety, it's more like (25-200mg). For your insomnia, I would try 25 mg or even cut it in half at 12.5 mg. Again, the good thing is that you will know THE FIRST DAY whether or not it helps.

If you are taking other meds, I cant say whether or not it will help you (you will have to find out by experiment). However, if you are taking nothing else, I can assure you it will make you sleep, which goes against my "every med affects everyone differently" mantra. It's like taking a Benedryl on steriods!
