What is Seroquel medication and what is it used for?

Seroquel is an atypical antipsychotic, which is commonly used to treat certain bipolar disorder and schizophrenia symptoms. It may also be prescribed off-label to treat insomnia and other mental health concerns, such as depression and anxiety.

Seroquel is available in different forms, including Seroquel extended-release tablets (Seroquel XR) and a generic medication known as quetiapine. The medication typically starts working within 2-3 weeks of your first dose. It may take 2-3 months to experience the full effects of Seroquel.

  • Bipolar disorder

    Note that we are unable to treat patients in acute manic episodes. Our primary care physicians are able to refill some of these medications for patients who are stable with their current regimen and are unable to get ahold of their psychiatrist. However, it is recommended for patients with bipolar to continue to follow up with their psychiatrists.* Some other options our doctors may prescribe include:

  • Seroquel for sleep

    A powerful sleep aid, Seroquel can put you to sleep quickly. Some other options our doctors may suggest for insomnia include:

    Our doctors may also recommend over-the-counter sleep aids, such as melatonin.

    *Please note that PlushCare does not have psychiatrists at this time. However, our physicians can help patients with mental health conditions, including bipolar disorder, and refill medications following a qualifying evaluation.

Seroquel side effects

Seroquel acts on certain serotonin receptors in the brain that stimulate appetite. Due to this, commonly reported side effects include increased hunger and weight gain. However, our doctors can work with you to mitigate these effects with a healthy diet and exercise plan. Other known side effects include:

  • Dizziness, drowsiness, or tiredness

  • Lack of energy

  • Stomach pain and nausea

  • Low blood pressure

Other side effects, which are less common but might be more severe, could include:

  • High blood pressure or fast heart rate

  • Abnormal heart rhythms 

  • Allergic reaction

  • Blurred vision or eye pain

  • Worsening depression

  • High blood sugar

Seroquel is also associated with an increased risk of neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS), which may involve muscle stiffness, altered mental status, and autonomic instability. Atypical antipsychotics may also cause tardive dyskinesia (TD), which causes potentially irreversible, involuntary dyskinetic movements.

How to take Seroquel

Our doctors will provide you with instructions on how to take Seroquel. Specific instructions may include:

  • Take with or without food

  • Don't stop taking quetiapine suddenly, as your condition may get worse or you may experience withdrawal symptoms

  • If you miss a dose, take the medication as soon as you remember. If it's almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose

The amount of time that Seroquel stays in your system depends on the dose. For a typical starting dose of 25 to 50 mg, it will take about 36 hours after your last dose to leave your system.

It is important to tell your doctor about any and all medications you take, including supplements and over-the-counter drugs, as Seroquel has several drug interactions. Drugs not to take with Seroquel include:

  • Bronchodilator asthma medications

  • Cold or allergy medicine, such as Benadryl

  • Medications to treat an overactive bladder

  • Other medications that may cause abnormal heart rhythms

  • Parkinson's disease medications

  • Medicine used to treat stomach problems, motion sickness, or IBS

Always consult your doctor for personalized medical advice. Talk to your doctor before taking quetiapine if you have high blood pressure or high cholesterol.

Seroquel prescription FAQs

  • Is Seroquel similar to Xanax?

    While Seroquel and Xanax are used to treat mental health concerns, they belong to different drug classes. Seroquel belongs to a class of drugs called atypical antipsychotics, while Xanax is a benzodiazepine, which is a controlled substance. While we do not prescribe controlled substances, Seroquel is a non-controlled medication to effectively treat symptoms of anxiety and insomnia.

  • How much does Seroquel cost?

    Depending on your pharmacy, Seroquel can cost around $419 for one hundred 25 mg tablets without insurance. Fortunately, generic alternatives like quetiapine tablets are often more affordable. As a PlushCare member, you can use our in-app Rx Price Finder and prescription discount card to locate the lowest prices at nearby pharmacies and save up to 80% on prescriptions.

  • How long does it take to lose weight after stopping Seroquel?

    As it takes about 36 hours after taking your last dose of 50mg to leave your system, the time it takes to lose weight after stopping can vary. For a higher dose, it will take longer to leave your system. If you consistently follow a healthy diet and exercise plan after stopping Seroquel, you may see weight loss results within the first month following your last dose. Our doctors can work with you on a weight management plan to guide you through your journey.
