I have taken Seroquel for probably 10 years and I'm now on

Customer Question

I have taken Seroquel for probably 10 years and I'm now on Latuda instead. I am working with my psychiatrist and this transition has now been completed by about a week. The 300 mg of Seroquel was very sedating and now I am really having a hard time sleeping . Do you know how long I should expect for my sleeping to improve ? I realize it has been a long-term drug use so I know it will take a while but any information as to how Long that might be would be appreciated!

Hi there,
I am Dr. Scott - it is my pleasure to assist you today.

Seroquel is usually very sedating when you start to use it initially.

Have you tried anything else for sleep?
