Seroquel XR, the brand-name form of quetiapine,
is a prescription medication used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in adults.
Seroquel XR belongs to a group of drugs called antipsychotics. The exact way it works is
unclear, but it is proposed to regulate certain chemicals in the brain. This medication comes
in extended release tablet form and is usually taken once daily with or without food. Common
side effects of Seroquel XR are dizziness, dry mouth, and drowsiness. Do not drive or
operate heavy machinery until you know how Seroquel XR affects you. As is always the
case, take this medication only if your healthcare provider prescribes it for you. For RxWiki,
