I take Seroquel at night and sleep great. I take Adderall XR in the morning and it helps with the hungover feeling from the Seroquel.

I am wondering if the irritability I am feeling in the morning is from the hungover feeling of the Seroquel? Or is the Seroquel depleting my serotonin?

Anyone else feel a little irritable from Seroquel?

How much do you take at night for Seroquel? Is it for insomnia/sleep?

I take 50mg of Seroquel at night. If I take it an hour or two before bed I sleep like a log.

I wonder if the Adderall is bad to take with the Seroquel?
I find the Adderall really helps the daytime fatigue.

I take Seroquel and Dexedrine (which is similar to Adderall). Not bad for me.

How long have you been taking the Seroquel?

What other meds do you take (what doses)?

I take a tiny dose of Adderall XR (5mg) in the morning. In the evening I take 1mg of Klonopin and about an hour or two before bed I take 50mg of Seroquel. I think the small dose of Adderall combats the fatigue from the Seroquel.

I sleep great and so far, so good.

What about you?

Sleep's been great for me as well.

I take seroquel for sleep and bipolar depression. I take from 200 - 400mg. Pdoc wants me on at least 300mg for depression. I'm a little worried that I'm developing resistance.

50mg really isn't that much. So if your irritability is related to depression the seroquel isn't helping. I guess the adderall could be causing it. I get grumpy when don't take it.

Could it be that you simply aren't a morning person? :)

Actually I'm in the same boat, I take 25mg seroquel at night to sleep & I take concerta during the day. I also find I'm more irritable, especially in the morning. I've been on the seroquel for about 6 weeks.

Seroquel works differently at different doses, according to this article:
