    You can do anything you want!However you may want to know that Seroquel XR (quetiapine extended-release) is not a FDA approved hypnotic, it is an atypical antipsychotic approved for schizophrenia, bipolar I, and as an adjunct to an antidepressant for major depressive disorder (MDD)! Seroquel has become more commonly used off-label (prescribed for a condition or at a dose it is not FDA approved for) for insomnia due to the sedating properties of the drug! Seroquel is not a recreational drug, it is not addictive, it is not a controlled substance, it does not cause euphoria, nor it does not produce barbiturate/benzodiazepine-like effects! Actually antipsychotics are infamous for causing dysphoria and a number of difficult side effects! That is a major reason people with a psychotic disorder often do not adhere to the prescription and will stop taking it! Over-the-counter (OTC) sleeping medications are typically either diphenhydramine or doxylamine! These drugs are antihistamines and like Seroquel are not drugs of abuse, do not cause euphoria, and are not controlled substances! The American Academy of Sleep Medicine insomnia treatment guidelines, along with most other guidelines, strongly recommend AGAINST using OTC antihistamines and Seroquel do to their low efficacy, high incidence of side effects, and because they disrupt sleep architecture (brain waves when sleeping)! And as I said these drugs are not going to get you high and Seroquel commonly causes dysphoria so why snort them?? Although using Seroquel for sleep in appropriate in some situations (eg!, people who have comorbid bipolar, psychosis, or substance abuse) guidelines strongly recommend against its use! You might want to talk to your doctor about switching to another hypnotic, which may or may not be appropriate for you, and you may ask why your dose is so high! Is it possible you are being treated for another problem, not just insomnia?? When Seroquel is used for insomnia typically the instant release form is used and it is almost unheard of for a dose of more than 100 mg to be used when it is only for sleep! In a letter from MassHealth/The Massachusetts Department of Mental Health they discuss the use of Seroquel for insomnia- We received feedback about the use of low-dose quetiapine (Seroquel) for unlabelled uses, including insomnia! The effects of quetiapine on weight gain and metabolism are not dose related and can occur even at low doses! The knowledge base available regarding quetiapine-related weight gain is limited to the published studies! However, recent newspaper articles reveal that there are unpublished quetiapine trials, conducted in the 1990s, that found much higher rates of significant weight gain compared to those that are in the literature! For hypnotics, please consider FDA approved medications and other alternatives before turning to quetiapine!Quetiapine carries the potential risk of causing diabetes, hyperlipidemia (high blood cholesterol and triglycerides), weight gain, increased appetite, hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar), hyperprolactinaemia (high levels of prolactin), hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid), neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS), tardive dyskinesia and other extrapyramidal symptoms (tardive dyskinesia is a syndrome of potentially irreversible, involuntary, dyskinetic movements), and suicide/suicidal thoughts or clinical worsening!
