> Glad things are working out with the Seroquel -- the modafinil is probably moderating it. I know at 800 mg, I stagger out of bed still. If I take it too late, i.e. stay up, like 1 or 2 am, it takes 2 half lives (12 hours) before I'm not completely free from its grasp, which means not until 2 in the afternoon. If I have to be somewhere early, I try (hard to resist staying up sometimes) to take it at 10-11, or at least midnight.
Oh, I'm sure that the provigil helps a lot, especially in making poor Li able to get up during the 2 weeks of zombie mornings! Mostly though, the daytime fatigue that I experience is due to cymbalta. I waited many weeks for that to go away, and it NEVER did. so frustrating!
I also forgot to say that I am very good about taking my pm meds between 10 and 10:30. And yeah, I do need a good 8-9 hours of sleep. My husband sleeps an hour or two longer than I do, though, and he's "healthy" no meds or anything. Just a crazy wife lol.
Oooooops! I guess I'm up past my bedtime tonight...Oh well. Tomorrow is sunday am.
thanks for tidings Jay,
Are you taking seroquel these days? you can be my seroquel buddy. zzzZZZzzzZZZzzzzz!
p.s. the best thing about taking seroquel at night is that even if you *wanted* to count sheep, you wouldn't be able to imagine them or say the numbers aloud in your head. No more hallucinations or intrusive flashback of nocturnal sheep. Zonk!
