Seroquel (quetiapine): Seroquel (quetiapine) is a 2nd generation antipsychotic medication. It acts on Dopamine and serotonin receptors especially in the mesolimbic area of the brain, which may be associated with some psychotic symptoms. Because of this specificity, there may be less potential to cause movement disorders -- but it still can do this at a high enough dose. Other side effects may be more prominent with 2nd gen drugs.
