Seroquel is an anti-psychotic medication available only by prescription. Seroquel is the trade-name for the generic drug Quetiapine Fumarate.

Seroquel is used in the treatment of schizophrenia to control delusions, hallucinations, thought problems and difficulties connecting with reality. Seroquel may also be prescribed on a short-term basis for the treatment of mania associated with bipolar disorder.

Seroquel dosage amounts vary depending on the patient’s condition and response to medication. Some patients find a relatively low dose to be effective, while others will require a much higher dose. To find the appropriate dosage for an individual, the prescribing doctor will start with a low dose and increase gradually until the desired result is achieved.
