Problems With Seroquel

Seroquel® (quetiapine fumarate) is a prescription medication commonly used for treating bipolar disorder and schizophrenia in adults.
 
As with any medicine, it is possible to develop problems with Seroquel. The most common side effects that have been reported with this drug during clinical studies include drowsiness, dry mouth, high cholesterol or triglycerides, and headaches. Some uncommon side effects (seen in less than 2 percent of people taking the medication) include increased or decreased sex drive, neck pain, and acne.
 
While most side effects of Seroquel are minor and can be treated easily (or do not require treatment at all), some are potentially serious and should be reported to your healthcare provider right away. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience suicidal thoughts, rapid weight gain, or any abnormal muscle movements.
