One make work : Better for one individual and vice versa. In other words - there is not a one size fits all response to these medications. They both can be very effective for sleep. Both have potential side effects. Seroquel (quetiapine) has potential to cause tardive dyskensia ; neuroleptic malignant syndrome.
