Mostly for sleep I've just seen Ambien prescribed, not Seroquel.  If you were prescribed this for other reasons pre-treatment I'd imagine they will keep you on any meds that don't conflict with the efficacy of the interferon or riba.  I haven't read anything about it causing any negative effects - did you ask your doctor?

Hi I took Seroquel for about five years recently stopped because it made me feel very tired
and I sleept for long periods of time. I now take Zyprexa 25 mg and feel great.
Back to the Seroquel my GI doctor said it was ok to take Seroquel during treatment, make sure you talk with your doctor before taking any new medicine.
