I'm pharmacist doing at mental hospital HCMc. I want to understand clearly about Seroquel XR. Thanks you
any medication that has XR (extended release) is not meant to be altered in any way shape form or fashion, the drug is meant to release an amount over a 24 hour period of time if you half the pill crush or chew it can cause a big dose of this medication to enter your system and possibly cause you to experience an overdose. it's given this way so you have a stable amount of medicine throughout the day and nightime hours until your next dose, Please follow the directions exactly as prescribed on the bottle, your doctor has determined this is the best way to give your medication and in order for you to be safe always take it at the same time each day, as it probably says on the bottle don't half the pill, don't crush it, or alter it in any way. We all want you to be safe and to be the best that you can possibly be.
