Seroquel for Sleep
I was wondering if it is common, or even known, if doctors prescribe Seroquel or it's generic brand for help with sleep (versus the standard Ambien, etc. and other 170 different OTC and RX that are available).  I did not see Seroquel on the list and see that it is mainly for manic depression/ biopolar disorder, etc.  Thanks.

Seroquel is not a sleep medication and is not commonly prescribed for sleep as a result. Very few doctors prescribe it for sleep because there is no evidence that it has any positive effect on sleep and it can have powerful side effects.
