‹< Seroquel’s Pharmacology |
|US brand name: Seroquel|
| Generic name: quetiapine |
Loved more and hated less than its more fatifying cousin Zyprexa, Seroquel, is like Remeron for the bipolar, in that it may be the only thing that lifts you out of otherwise intractable depression, so who gives a fuck about how much you eat.
These days Seroquel XR is the prefered version. The immediate-release version is mainly used for insomnia.

Astra Zeneca’s official Seroquel XR site Plain old
seroquel.com resolves there as well. It’s really generic, and bipolar disorder is the main focus. I bet it won’t last very long once extended-release quetiapine is available as a generic.

Seroquel, and all other drug names on this page and used throughout the site, are the trademarks of someone else. Seroquel’s PI Sheet will probably have the name of the manufacturer and trademark owner (they’re not always the same company) at or near the very bottom. Or ask Google who the owner is. The way pharmaceutical companies buy each other and swap products like Monopoly™ real estate, the ownership of the trademark may have changed without my noticing. It may of changed hands by the time you finished reading this article.
