Default Inositol and drowsiness

Has anyone tried taking Inositol powder and found it makes you sleep a lot?
Iíve been taking 10gm as directed by my doctor but Iím finding it very hard to wake up in the mornings. Iíve been taking it for about two months roughly. Iím already taking Seroquel so I donít need something to make me sleep more. Iím wondering if itís the interaction between the two but hard to tell since I canít stop taking Seroquel suddenly to find out.

I'm not familiar with it. Have you tried calling your local pharmacist? Sometimes they can be very helpful and knowledgable about interactions, etc.

Heart Re: Inositol and drowsiness

Inositol can make people very sleepy.
Ten grams is a rather high dose.
What are you using it for? Anxiety? Other?

I very much agree with calling your pharmacist to ask about drug/supplement interactions, etc.

I hope you get this sorted out soon.
