Benefits of Seroquel

Seroquel® (quetiapine fumarate) is an atypical antipsychotic medication often used for treating bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. At this time, it is only approved for use in adults.
 
There are many benefits of Seroquel. In previous clinical studies, people taking the drug for schizophrenia experienced improvement in their schizophrenia symptoms (including hallucinations and suspiciousness) when compared to those not taking the drug.
 
Previous clinical studies have also shown Seroquel to be effective in the treatment of bipolar disorder. In these studies, the drug was effective for treating episodes of mania or depression and also helped prevent symptoms of bipolar disorder from returning. For bipolar depression episodes, Seroquel reduced suicidal thinking and improved the overall quality of life. For bipolar mania episodes, it helped to decrease the manic symptoms.
