Does Seroquel Help Cure Severe Insomnia?

default
Posted on Tue, 21 Feb 2017
Question: Doctor:I have very bad insomnia. I have been taking Levothyroxin for about 22 Years. The Doctor {Physcharist } recommended Magnesium Glycinate to help me sleep that I have just started on for about 2 days. The last couple of weeks or so I have ebeen experience unnoticible vibrations through my body. I have gotten about 2hours hours of sleep last night and the night before 4 hours. This sleep pattern has been for several months long before I started feeling these vibrations. I think Melotonin has done this but I am not sure. Is there any sedative for me for sleep that you can recommend?

Brief Answer:
A low dose seroquel could be a option

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

Although there are multiple sleep medicines which can help you but in my experience low dose of seroquel can be a better option considering your age. In my experience of five years in geriatric psychiatry I have found this either 12.5 or 25 mg of seroquel brings good amount of sleep without producing any side effects.

I hope this helps you.
If you have more questions feel free to write back to me.
Thanks and regards.
