Seroquel Withdrawal Symptoms
Seroquel® (quetiapine fumarate) is a prescription medication approved to treat schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. As with most medications for mental illnesses, stopping Seroquel is not recommended without your healthcare provider's approval. Although the drug is not addicting and is not likely to be abused, the brain may need time to adjust to a decrease in levels.
Potential Seroquel withdrawal symptoms include nausea and vomiting, insomnia, symptoms of schizophrenia (such as delusions or hallucinations), and symptoms of bipolar disorder (such as depression or mania). These withdrawal symptoms may not improve with time, as they may be symptoms of the underlying disorder (schizophrenia or bipolar disorder).
