Well I went to my doctor's appointment yesterday, and he said the cut on my hand looked good and to just keep on doing what I'm doing. I have to make sure I keep it really clean cause it is on my hand, and hands attract alot of bacteria of course. Well my doctor said I was doing wonderful, he didnt even UA me cause he trusts me so much, which is great, but I wouldnt of mind cause of course I dont do any thing illegal at all, I dont even drink. But I told him about my sleeping issues and how I've tried everything over the counter and they just make me have more crazy dreams, and the melatonin didnt do anything. I get around 3 hours of sleep, usually after my kids go to school in the morning. So he gave me Seroquel 100mg, which I've had this med before for bipolar about 3-4 years ago, so I dont really remember the side effects. So I guess they couldnt of been that bad if I dont remember because I really remember all the ones that gave me bad side effects. But I was wondering if anyone here has ever tried seroquel for sleep. The doctor told me to wait til the weekend to start the seroquel incase I need to sleep in (my kids of course count on me waking them up in the mornings and making their lunch and giving them a ride to school cause we have a pervert walking around the school grounds reeling in kids with a cat and dog, so even sending my kids for a one block walk to school makes me nervous right now). but then again my kids love the weekends cause I always make them their favorite breakfasts, it's kinda like our fun family time sitting around in our PJs making a mess in the kitchen making home made donuts or chocolate chip pancakes, and I know if I sleep in, they will get upset at me. So taking a med that will make me feel sleepy all day makes me nervous. And the doctor said the only bad thing about this med is feeling hungry all the time, and I cant gain more weight, I'm already on borderline to become overweight. Well anyways, I must go, I'm starting to get a bad headache.
