Does anti psychotics such as serequel effect rem or non-rem sleep? does it stop it either one of it?

Initially: Talk to your doctor. Studies do show that Seroquel (quetiapine) will more likely affect non-REM sleep initially (first four days), but after several weeks of use, the sleep architecture more resembles what it was at baseline.
