Generic Seroquel XR
Is Quetiapine a Generic Seroquel XR?No, it isn't. Quetiapine is the active ingredient in Seroquel XR (as well as in short-acting Seroquel), but it is not a generic version of the drug. Oftentimes, the active ingredient of a drug is referred to as its "generic name." But the generic name of a medicine is different than a generic version of it. For there to be a generic version of a medicine, the original medicine must have gone off patent and another company (besides the original manufacturer) must have made the product.
