Contain the active ingredient : Quetiapine which is an atypical antipsychotic, which is used to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or depression.
Quetiapine works in the brain, where it affects various neurotransmitters, in particular serotonin (5HT) and dopamine.
Neurotransmitters are chemicals that are stored in nerve cells and are involved in transmitting messages between the nerve cells. Dopamine and serotonin are neurotransmitters known to be involved in regulating mood, behaviour, thinking and perception, among other things.
Psychotic illness appears to be caused by disturbances in the activity of neurotransmitters (mainly dopamine) in the brain. Schizophrenia is known to be associated with an overactivity of dopamine in the brain, and this may be responsible for the delusions and hallucinations that are a feature of this disease.
Quetiapine works by blocking the receptors in the brain that dopamine acts on. This prevents the excessive activity of dopamine and helps to control symptoms of schizophrenia and manic depression.
Quetiapine improves symptoms such as hallucinations (hearing, seeing, or sensing things that are not really there), disturbed thoughts (such as having mistaken beliefs or feeling unusually suspicious or paranoid), feeling depressed, anxious, agitated, hostile or unusually excited, having a lack of emotion or becoming withdrawn.
What is it used for?
Controlling episodes of mania and depression in people with manic depression (bipolar affective disorder). If your manic or depressive episode gets better with quetiapine your doctor may also suggest you keep taking it as a mood stabiliser. This can help prevent future episodes of mania or depression.
