Hi Tamara, YES! Every anti-psychotic I go on makes me sleepy. I stopped taking my meds recently for that reason but had to go back on them. Now after only 2 days I am sleeping from 7pm until 1pm the next day, it's rediculous!

I've been taking mine in the a.m. as well, tonight I am going to try taking it just before bed to see what happens.

I'm interested to know if anyone else knows if this side effect goes away after several weeks when the body adjusts to the drug?

Edit: btw, I'm on 6mg because I felt 3mg wasn't lasting all day. Maybe 3mg at the 'perfect' time of day would be sufficient?
