What is quetiapine?
Quetiapine is an atypical antipsychotic drug that is used to treat patients with schizophrenia as well as mania and depression related to bipolar disorder.
Schizophrenia is a mental illness that causes you to have unusual or inappropriate emotions, thinking, and/or disturbances. When the levels of these neurotransmitters are out of balance, patients may experience symptoms such as hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, and even suicidal thoughts.
Mania is one of two episodes or swings you experience when you have bipolar disorder. This might be expressed in feelings of euphoria, energy, and sometimes irritability. Depression swings your mood the other way and results in feeling sad, hopeless, or unmotivated even in normal daily activities.
