Seraquil is a common misspelling of Seroquel (quetiapine).

What is Seroquel (Seraquil)?

Seroquel (Seraquil) is an antipsychotic medication used to treat symptoms of psychotic conditions such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder (manic depression). Researchers believe that it works by diminishing the action of dopamine and serotonin, two of the brain's chief chemical messengers. This may help to improve symptoms associated with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Schizophrenia is a mental disorder marked by delusions (false beliefs), hallucinations, disrupted thinking, and loss of contact with reality. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Seroquel (Seraquil) may cause drowsiness, dizziness, or decreased vision. These effects may be worse if you take it with alcohol or certain medicines. Use Seroquel (Seraquil) with caution. Do not drive or perform other possibly unsafe tasks until you know how you react to it.

Seroquel (Seraquil) may cause dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting; alcohol, hot weather, exercise, or fever may increase these effects. To prevent them, sit up or stand slowly, especially in the morning. Sit or lie down at the first sign of any of these effects.
