Question: Seroquel

 Kirsty_Oz - Wed Jul 20, 2005 11:09 pm

Can anyone tell me something about this drug?

I know it is an anti-psychotic drug. Thats all. A very close friend of mine is being treated in a psychiatric facility, and they have just changed meds to this.

User avatar Seroquel is an atypical antipsychotic; it works basically the same way as mellaril or thorazine. It is used for psychotic episodes in bipolar patients and to help stabilize mania. It is also used to treat schizophrenics.
