• kickbacks from the pharmaceutical company/vendor?
  • You should ask your doctor that question. Also, I would research it if I were you. I always research my prescriptions. Maybe you could try to get a medical marijuana card if you're in an area where you can get one. Light usage of pot-laced edibles would probably be a good place to start rather than an anti-psychotic. I'm not a doctor or anything, but I know that pot knocks me on my ass if I eat it.
  • Quetiapine (Seroquel) is usually for schizophrenia or mood disorders, and it is an atypical antipsychotic... I do not know why your doctor would prescribe it for insomnia alone. Sometimes it is used as an augmentation agent. If you are taking other medication for insomnia, it can be added to enhance the other drug's effects. Quetiapine does have the distinct advantage of being non-habit forming. Aside from that, there is no reason why a doctor should prescribe it. You should ask your doctor why he thinks you need it, aside from insomnia.
  • Why would you even consider taking either of those? All medications like that are unnecessary and dangerous, unless you think you have pink furry clowns attacking you with giant mechanized swordfish.
  • My God! It's an anti-psychotic? I have just been prescribed it as well and thought it was just a sleeping pill as I suffer from insomnia. I was taking Stilnox but that just wasn't working anymore. I do not and have never had psychosis or bipolar disorder. I will definately be asking my doctor about this tomorrow. And for the people who say, "Why would you take those things", obviously you have never suffered from insomnia. It can be very debillitating. lol
  • I to was prescribed seroquel for sleep i am in recovery & it is non addictive.. I also learned that it was a very likely possibility for the hospital to be getting some kind of goodies for over prescribing it.....
  • maybe he think they will work better
