Hello Lauriewilson. Some drugs upon being taken are more sensitive to sunlight. In the case of Seroquel (which I took for several years) To my knowledge there are no warnings meaning if you have bood pressure issues for example, tell your doctor etc etc. or case histories of people having any sort of a problem in this regard. Reading what I just entered I haven't given you the reason why that you asked. Best I can offer is a side effect to the drug is perspiring. Out in the sun you perspire, and loose some of the drug through that manner. Regards, pledge

Seroquel can make you more sensitive to the sun. You may get burned easier, but it is a much less common side effect. Other than this there should be no problems with the sun and Seroquel. I took Seroquel xr and work in direct sun all day. I don't think you could ever lose enough through sweat for it to really cause an issue.

I have high pressure but I also sweat to excess. My doctor recommend this medication, but I see enough about excessive sweating in the literature.
