hi i take 50mg quetiapine prn(prn as it is used for sleep but take it every night otherwise i don't sleep) for sleep. it takes about an hour and a half for it to kick in. i take it between 9pm and 10pm. yet i still find myself very tired come the morning to the point i can not stay awake. at one point i was taking 25mg at night but that did nothing for me. i weigh 353 pounds. what would your personal experience with what time at night to take the quediapine so that one does not sleep most of the day?

I do the same thing, I take 100 mg for sleep at bedtime. It kicks in fast. I take Adderol in the AM with coffee. If I didn't, I'd sleep half the day. But, I have been really tired upon waking ever since I was a little kid. I am 54 now. I sometimes wonder if it is Abilify that makes me tired.

Abilify always made me tired. And I yawned so much that people probably thought I was bored with them. Lol but it helped overall, just annoying.

I try to take mine around 8pm. I take 200mg. I took Abilify for a while but it made me so bouncy and jumpy I had to stop.
