my boss wants me to take the closing shift at work 4 or 5 nights a week.. normally i would be thrilled because i love my job, however i take seroquel 300mg at 8:30 pm and by 10:30 i feel so ill that if i don't go to bed immediately it just becomes torture trying to stay awake or function at all.
where i work closed at 11, and closing duties dont finish until midnight. then i have to walk 20 minutes back to my dorm.

crap confused

hoping my pdoc will be able to give me xanax and lower my dose of seroquel..

Can you gradually shift your dose to a little later? Does that screw up the next day?

Are you disabled by BP? Do you receive accomodations in school? If he's trying to force you into this, you can refuse on grounds of reasonable accomodation. It IS a serious health concern for you.

I don't want to apply for disability because i think it would make it harder to get my RA job next year and i really need the free housing.. i can't afford to go back to school without it.

I've tried to shift it to later, but honestly it works best when i take it 8:30-9:30. i took it at 11pm-midnight for a month and a half it and became ineffective so i went back to 8:30.
