Can be very helpful: Seroquel (quetiapine) is not for everyone. It is a very potent med and should only be used for serious problems such as non-responsive depression, aggitated depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. It can be very effective for these conditions and well tolerated. It has been the best med for some of my pts, others hated it and couldn't tolerate.
