Effects of Seroquel

Seroquel® (quetiapine fumarate) is a second-generation antipsychotic medication used for treating schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It comes in tablet form and is available by prescription only.
There are many beneficial effects of Seroquel. In previous clinical studies of Seroquel for the treatment of schizophrenia, people taking the drug experienced improvement in their schizophrenia symptoms (including hallucinations and suspiciousness) when compared to those not taking the drug.
Previous clinical studies have also shown it 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.
