It's a potent drug that's prescribed to people with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, major depressive disorder, insomnia, and anxiety. It doesn't work for everyone. Your doctor will probably prescribe you 25mg to start off with. Warning- it's kind of scary the first time. This isn't like buying some sleeping aids, or taking Benadryl, or Ambien. Give it 30 min to an hour and you're going pass the f out.

For some reason, pill-pushing doctors will tell you that you can take it in the morning and at night. I've been taking it for 10 years and there's no way in hell I'm going to take it during the day. The highest I can go is 200mg. Also, talk to your doctor about prescribing you Lexapro. It's a great antidepressant match for Seroquel and you'll no longer be a demon bitch when you wake up in the mornings, because seroquel makes you a foul and crazed jerk every morning.

Let me tell you WHY I've been on it for 10 years. The bad? Because now my body doesn't know how to sleep without it. But you know what? I DON'T CARE. Why? Cause I am guaranteed a good night's rest every single night of my life. Freaking out about bills? Pass out. Work stressing you out? Pass out. Got dumped and you can't stop freaking the hell out? Pass out. Did a bunch of blow and need to work in the morning? Pass out.

You are GUARANTEED sleep, no matter what the day served you on its shitty platter.
I mean yeah, so I'm groggy in the mornings. But you know what? I slept.
Seroquel saved my damn life...

Since there are many negative reviews of this medicine on UrbanDictionary I would like to add my opinion.
I take a relatively low dose of 150-300 mg at 8pm every night to help me fall a sleep at 10pm and to help me sleep a full night.

This medicine has helped me A LOT during the 2 years that I've taken 150-300 mgs/night because I can now live without any sleep issues. I do not experience any downsides, I am not sleepy during the day, I have no problems concentrating or focusing on the tasks at hand and I wake up well rested and ready for the day after 6-9 hours of sleep depending on when my alarm goes off.

I too have experienced the downsides of Seroquel but only when I was taking 600mgs or more. My symptoms at that time was dizzyness, somnolence, fainting, tachycardia and irregular heartbeat. You should be aware that this could happen when taking Seroquel!

As every other drug/medicine this should be used with caution and you should be aware of what your body is experiencing but this is not a horrible drug, it works for many people (including me when I got the dosage right) and PLEASE, don't trust just one review of this medicine, talk to your physician, to others who have had experience taking Seroquel and it could end up helping you.

A common anti-psychotic. One of the many “keep you quiet” drugs frequently prescribed to both the mentally ill and patients who are in drug and alcohol treatment facilities (rehab).

From the website: “Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are two different mental disorders that affect millions of people in the United States. Seroquel
is a psychotropic medication shown to be effective in the treatment of many symptoms of schizophrenia, as well as in the treatment of acute mania associated with bipolar I disorder.”
“Rocco used to be really hyper and twitchy, but now that the Doc’s got him on Seroquel, he’s real mellow and much more fun to hang with.”

"According to any of the patients I've talked to in the rehab unit, Seroquel makes the withdrawl symptoms much less harsh than the old days of the Methadone clinics."

A drug that only idiots would take recreationally. If you enjoy getting high off this drug please never try anything else because you clearly will get addicted to anything you try. Basically the "high" is just getting extremely drowsy and not that opiate benzo like drowsy. You literally just feel tired but mentally you are still normal so it's just irritating. If you feel euphoric off this you are probably experiencing the placebo effect. It's only recreational use would be helping ease the comedown off hard drugs like meth, cocaine, ecstasy act.
stupid wanna be cool drug addict: Yoo homie I just got so fucked up off seroquel.
Friend: You are retarded.

Since the top definition isn't accurate I'm going to use this as a comment.

Seroquel is addictive, if i just all of a sudden stop taking it i get withdrawals, but if you are having problems with the sleep part of it, ask to take it at night and then a really low dose in the morning. But other than that its pretty much a neutral medication, it works for some people, but its super fucking hard to find a medication that works for people with mood disorders that aren't unipolar (like depression), so bipolar people have to try a lot of stuff
Yeah, Seroquel doesn't work for me, but my cousin really liked it.

The definition of this medication should be "walking dead." After taking it, you're either asleep for 24 hours or more (never less) or awake in a drunken state without actually consuming any alcohol. It feels terrible. You can't tell if you need to sleep, if you're wide awake, if you're hungry, if you're sick, if you're dizzy, if you have a migraine, if you're about to die, or if you have a brain aneurysm. If any of these things sound fun to you, then you should definitely try it. Wads of confuzzled fucking fun.
This Seroquel knocked me out for 4 days and even though I'm awake, I still feel like I'm sleeping.

A supposed mood-stabilizer (or anti-psychotic, at 800+ mgs) that seems to function by making people too tired to be emotional.
Seroquel is half the reason my rehab had to rush my limp body to the hospital one eventful morning.
