Clinical Information

Quetiapine belongs to the atypical class of neuroleptics and is administered for the treatment of psychic disorders such as chronic schizophrenia or bipolar complaints. Low dose quetiapine is also recommended as a sleeping drug but is not medically approved for this purpose. The antipsychotic and anti-depressive characteristics of the medication however, are claimed for the blocking of dopamine receptors and the antagonistic effect on serotonin receptors (specifically the 5-HT2 receptor). Frequent side effects are, somnolence and increase in body weight.
