How long were you on the Seroquel?

FWIW I tried Seroquel for sleep - I took 50mg-100mg for 3 months, and quit cold turkey as it didn't help me at all. My withdrawal was quite short lived, I felt wired/weird and uncomfortable for about a week, then it vanished overnight. Actually, I hadn't even realized it was withdrawal until 4 days into it, when I took a Sqel pill and the symptoms lifted - my doc at the time had mistakenly assured me that there was no need to taper off.

I can totally relate to your feeling of wanting to sleep the day away. I used to take certain meds to do just that. Always thought it was a symptom of my depression and.. yeah, that need did stop once my depression started to lift

Good luck :)

> I was prescribed Seroquel and liked the sedating, knock-you-on-your-butt feeling so much that instead of just taking 25 mgs or 50 mgs, I was taking 3 at a time and sleeping the day away. I tried to stop doing this, but I just couldn't. I have gained 15 pounds that came on so fast I was actually shocked when I got on the scale after three weeks - of course my binge eating when I first started taking it didn't help.
