I take seroquel for insomnia, usually 25 mg. It does seem to help, but I’m wondering how long does it stay in my system? In other words how many hours do I need to be able to devote to sleep?
I take 100 mg of Seroquel at night and feel like I’m not really awake for at least 8 hrs. I get extreme mania, and the Seroquel really helps. When I don’t take it, I usually get 3-4 hrs. of sleep.
Seroquel’s half life is 6-8+ hours. That just means it’s half as strong as when it peaked. Go with what works for you. Me, I need 8 if I’m balanced, less if I’m hypo (and more Seroquel).
