Were you looking for information on Seroquel? Seraquel is a common misspelling of Seroquel.
Seroquel® is an atypical antipsychotic medication that has been approved for the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder (also called manic depression). The drug cannot cure these conditions; however, it is generally quite effective in helping people manage their symptoms. It is believed to work by blocking or lessening the effect of certain chemicals in the brain.
Seroquel comes in tablet form. It is usually taken by mouth one to three times a day. If you are taking the medication once a day, it is usually best to take it at bedtime. Possible side effects include dry mouth, headaches, and drowsiness. Prior to taking this medication, let your healthcare provider know if you have any other medical conditions, such as diabetes, epilepsy, low blood pressure, or heart disease.
