Basic Information On Seroquel
Seroquel belongs to a new category of drugs called anti psychotic medications. It inhibits the action of chemical transmitters, dopamine and serotonin, which are found in the brain. It is used to treat schizophrenia, acute treatment of manic episodes linked with bipolar I disorder, disrupted thinking, hallucinations, and loss of contact with reality due to confusion or memory loss. It is used with other antidepressants to cure acute depressive disorders. The Seroquel drug is not used for patients under 10 years of age. It instills confidence in a person enabling him to think clearer, better and healthier. The patient participates more actively in day to day activities and feels positive about himself. It also helps control severe mood swings and decreases the frequency of such mood fluctuations.
