I take 100 mg seroquel and it allows me to sleep but I can’t wake up in the morning. I have cut down the dose from 150 to 100 but nothing changes.

Hi @anndomico that must be so frustrating having this medication help you sleep but prevent you from waking up.
i wanted to tag fellow Connect members @kwilder01 @derryman @jakedduck1 @mxyzptlk and @mrsminniemouse may be able to share their experience with seroquel and how drowsiness affected them while they were taking the medication.
Back to you @anndomico, how long have you been on seroquel?
I had to change my user name because your system wouldn’t let me in with my other user name/password.
I have finally quit Seroquel because it was pushing me into diabetes and making me fat and unable to lose weight. I am now on Abilify which has its problems too, but I’m losing weight and I’m not sleeping all day. Abilify is actually activating. It may not be the best for me but it’s what I’m trying for now. Does anyone have experience with Latuda?
My previous name was mxyzptlk.
I hope your not taking Seroquil just for sleep.
This medication is a powerful Antipsychotic and is not recommended as a sleep aid. Drowsiness is a side effect of Seroquil and no competent physician would prescribe it solely for sleep.
There have been people who have been misdiagnosed with Parkinson’s taking the same dose you are. Experts are working hard to stop doctors from prescribing it for insomnia and other sleep related issues.
If your only taking this for sleep I hope you take it back to your doctor and tell him to put it where the Sun doesn’t shine. Then look for a new doctor.
Hi, @anndomico – how are things going with the quetiapine (Seroquel)? Are you still experiencing the same grogginess you mentioned?
I'd like to invite into this discussion some others who could speak to any side effects they experienced with quetiapine (Seroquel), including any extreme grogginess, like @secretwhitepop @mrser52 @pianista @lla2019 and @sarahbeth.

When I was taking Seroquel I could not stop eating.
Yes, extreme grogginess too! But I am on a very low dose and now it seems to be leveling off. I’ve also started on a low dose of Zoloft which is adding to the grogginess! But it’s all doable. Yes. Hungry a lot. Food tastes very good! But I had lost some weight due to anxiety so hoping I don’t go overboard!
