An update since Seroquel

First day after taking a teeensy (12.5) dose of Seroquel last night. Had very vivid and instructive dreams that I've missed. Haven't really dreamt in a while so I'm very curious about Seroquel's REM effects. The dreams tell me it takes you to stage 3, but it's stage 4 that I need for fibromyalgia healing.

Felt like a board hit me over the head when I woke up and have felt very dopey all day - like duhhhhh!! This is better than the hand-wringing anguish but not so good for cognition. I trust it will go away.

My questions:
- Does the dopeyness go away with time?
- Does the morning 'hit with a board' feeling subside? It never did when I was taking trazodone and I have enough trouble getting out of bed in the best of circumstances.
- What dose maximum do people work up to using it for a bipolar MS and sleeper rather than schizophrenic med?
- Any thoughts on taking dopamine enhancing stuff like tyrosine? I take tyrosine for thyroid health, but if Seroquel is a dopamine antagonist, is tyrosine counter productive?
