Can you work on quetiapine (seroquel)?

Sometimes: Depends on the status of the underlying condition it's being used to treat as well as the type of work being performed. All medications are ultimately used to manage medical and/or mental health conditons such that the individual's functioning (eg ability to work, etc) is sustained/restored. In general, quetiapine in of itself does not automatically preclude one from working.
