How can I help prevent this seroquel hangover?

I'm on 50mg of seroquel nightly, and I just went back to normal work shift of needing to be at work at 8:30am. Obviously, getting to bed at a decent time will help, but it seems that no matter when I go to sleep, the hangover feeling is still there. The feeling is a zombie like state, hard to think or talk, and just feeling like I'm still asleep. Currently I use a can of red bull to wake me up, but I don't want to have to depend on caffeine. I work at a call center though, so I have to be able to think and talk. Besides getting a new drug, which I don't really want to do, what can I do to help this? And if I do need a different drug, does anyone have recommendations for a replacement? This is for used for sleeping and anxiety. (Which, I realize it's not really being prescribed correctly. I think my shrink is an idiot, but since it seems to work, I haven't said anything yet.)
