If you have schizophrenia, a healthcare provider may prescribe Seroquel XR® (quetiapine XR). As part of a class of drugs known as atypical antipsychotics, Seroquel XR works by blocking or lessening the effects of certain chemicals in the brain that can become elevated in people with schizophrenia. Seroquel XR is not suitable for everyone. A few of the conditions you should let your healthcare provider know about before taking the medication include diabetes, seizures, and heart disease.
Seroquel XR comes in the form of a tablet that is taken just once a day, generally in the evening. Although most people tolerate Seroquel XR well, there are some potential side effects of the medication, such as dizziness, drowsiness, and a dry mouth.
