Do you mean Seroquel? This put simply will decrease the
outward signs of psychoses, specifically schizophrenia. It acts
chemically by working against dopamine and serotonin and some other
receptors. The drug can cause drowsiness, dizziness when standing
up too fast, alterations in body temperature (be careful in cold
weather), odd movements and twitching, flu-like syndromes, ear pain,
runny nose, cough, palpitations, swollen ankles, bruising and unusual
bleeding, weight gain.
The drug should not be used if pregnant, breast feeding, history of
seizures, heart disease, liver problems, thyroid problems, or
alzheimer's dementia, or history of suicide attempt.
You should tell the doc right awayif any of these symptoms occur.
Have eye exams every 6 months.
