Possibly, but....: Seroquel has significant sedating effects; hence it is used frequently to help with sleep. However, even though Saphris (asenapine) typically does not cause similar quality of sedation, it may cause tiredness in susceptible individuals. Keep in mind, esp if you are taking it twice daily. Recommend discussing with your doctor for guidance on timing of dose most appropriate in your particular case. Best.
