What is Seroquel (Seroquil)?

Seroquel (Seroquil) is the first in a new class of antipsychotic medications. It is believed to work by reducing the action of dopamine and serotonin, two chemical transmitters found in the brain.

Seroquel (Seroquil) is used in the treatment of schizophrenia, a mental disorder marked by delusions (false beliefs), hallucinations, disrupted thinking, and loss of contact with reality. Seroquel (Seroquil) is also used for the short-term treatment of mania associated with bipolar disorder (manic depression).

Seroquel (Seroquil) may cause tardive dyskinesia, a condition characterized by uncontrollable muscle spasms and twitches in the face and body. This problem can be permanent, and appears to be most common among older adults, especially women.
