Brands and generics both contain the same active ingredient(s) and are medically equivalent. Some brands are marketed under different names by the same manufacturer depending on the country of origin.

For an item marked "generic" any quality brand may be sent, however you will always receive the active ingredients ordered in the strength(s) ordered.
Seroquel (quetiapine) is an antipsychotic medication used in a variety of mental disorders. At very low dosage it is sometimes used as a sleeping aid. It is typically prescribed in patients 13 years of age and up, though it should be used with caution in elderly patients.
Seroquel comes in tablets which are usually taken two or three times per day. It is also available in extended release tablets which are taken just once per day. In some parts of the world Seroquel is known by the brand name Tenprolide.
Seroquel Uses & Administration
Seroquel is used in a range of mental and mood disorders, both alone and with other medications. It is most commonly used to alleviate symptoms of:
Dosage and duration of treatment can vary considerably depending on a number of personal variables, most significant among them being age, other medical conditions that may be present, and other medications being taken. Treatment typically starts at lower doses and is quickly increased to maintenance doses. In otherwise healthy adults treatment is usually as follows:
Some patients notice a difference just days after starting treatment, but it takes a few weeks for full benefits to be seen. Treatment may continue for as long as it provides benefit. Regular doctor checkups are advisable for the duration of treatment to monitor for developing side effects.
Precautions Before Use
Seroquel is a potent medication and, particularly when taken at higher doses, does carry risk of side effects---some of which can be serious. Patients with certain preexisting conditions are at greater risk of adverse reactions; it should be used with caution if there is any history of:
Seroquel should be used with extreme caution in the elderly, and should not be used in elderly patients with dementia or Alzheimer's.
Like all antipsychotic medications, a small percentage of younger patients taking Seroquel may find an increase in suicidal or other destructive thoughts. This side effect is most prominent in patients under 25 years of age and, if it is experienced at all, usually happens in the first few weeks of treatment. Patients under 25 who have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts should be monitored closely during the first few weeks of taking this medication.

Seroquel XR (quetiapine) is an atypical antipsychotic medication used in patients aged 10 and up to alleviate symptoms in a range of mental disorders, including:
The XR in Seroquel XR stands for extended release. This product differs from regular Seroquel tablets in that Seroquel XR is taken just once a day, while regular tablets are taken two or three times per day.
Seroquel XR also stands out from many other antipsychotic treatments in being an atypical antipsychotic. Compared to typical antipsychotics, atypical antipsychotics are less likely to produce certain movement-related side effects, such as muscle rigidity or muscle spasms. Atypical antipsychotics are also less likely to cause constipation.
Taking Seroquel XR
This medication comes in tablets, which should not be split, crushed, dissolved or otherwise damaged; doing so will destroy the tablet's extended-release properties and allow the medication to be quickly absorbed into the body, which can produce dangerous side effects.
In nearly all cases treatment begins at lower doses, increased to standard maintenance doses over days or weeks. The exception is using Seroquel XR as a sleeping aid, in which case treatment starts at and continues to be 25 to 50 mg per day. In other cases treatment with Seroquel XR usually consists of:
Again there are many factors that may influence dosage; patient age, other medications being taken, other medical conditions that may be present, and other variables. Young and elderly patients in particular will likely require adjusted doses.
Patients with certain preexisting conditions are at greater risk of experiencing potentially serious side effects from Seroquel XR. This product should be used with caution if there is any history of:
Seroquel XR should be used with extreme caution in the elderly, and should not be used in individual with Alzheimer's.
This medication is known to interact with other medications. Of particular concern are:
Always check with a doctor or pharmacist before mixing medications.
Taken as directed, most patients experience only mild side effects, and these side effects often stop occurring over the first few weeks of treatment. Most common are:
The above side effects are not cause for concern unless they become severe. If they do become severe a doctor should be consulted; there are many alternative medications that produce similar benefits but that may not produce serious side effects for an individual.
