Seroquel Oral

Seroquel® (quetiapine fumarate) is a prescription medicine used for treating schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It comes in tablet form and is taken by mouth, typically one to three times daily. If you are only taking the medication once a day, it is usually best to take Seroquel oral tablets at bedtime.
 
It is not known exactly how Seroquel works for schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. However, it is known that the drug blocks or lessens the effects of certain chemicals in the brain. These chemicals (such as dopamine and serotonin) may be elevated in people with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.
 
Even though most people tolerate Seroquel well, side effects are possible. Some of the most common side effects that have been reported with this antipsychotic medication include dry mouth, headaches, and drowsiness.
