Hello,

Seroquel XR is an antipsychotic drug and I don't think it may be useful for any type of detoxification?

Your son took this drug last Friday (he is not sure, what he took?) and if his mind and thoughts are still confused in my view he should be seen by a psychiatrist. He may be treated on outpatient basis also depending on the clinical examination and mental status evaluation.

I hope this helps.

Regards

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
