Extreme tiredness on 25 mg of Quetiapine

Posted , 17 users are following.

Hi, I really don't want to take Quetiapine as it makes me very very sleepy, but if I don't take it I can't sleep. Last night I tossed and turned for 2 hours and finally succumbed to taking it. This morning I feel rotten and sleepy. If I don't take it, I can't sleep. But if I take it, I am extremely tired in the day. Any suggestions, anyone, on what to do?

    Hey Kate, if I was you I would get different medication I'm 29 and have been on 750mg of that for the best part of 10 years, and because of that my memory has been seriously affected and if I don't have them I get beyond ill to the point of collapsing because the pains so much, I'm not sure if that happens with everyone or if it's just me. If I could go back I would have never touched those tablets. Hope this isn't the same case for u but it may be when ur body becomes so used to having them
