My son J has been on 600 mg regular Seroquel since January 2008. It has helped tremendously with anxiety, depression, sleep issues and general mood stabilization. He goes to bed every night between 10 and 11 pm and needs to wake up at 6 am to catch his school bus at 6:30 am. His high school day begins at 7:25 am. When husband and I met with school administrators last week, we learned that his teachers have been complaining that J sleeps heavily during his first and second period classes. In response, his psychiatrist decided to switch J to 600 mg Seroquel XR last Friday to see if his alertness would improve. Today we received glowing reports that J was awake, alert, participating in class and completing his work -- a first in many weeks. That would be all well and good, except . . . J went to see his psychiatrist late this afternoon and was expansive, chatty and goofy. As we were leaving, his psychiatrist said to watch J's sleep patterns because he saw some hypomania peeking through. J told husband this evening that he has felt "wide awake" all day, and he even woke up at 4:30 am and 5:30 am before I woke him at 6 am. Anyone else experience something similar?
