Seroquel is an antipsychotic drug approved by the FDA for treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It is a so-called “second generation” antipsychotic, and it, along with other second generation antipsychotics, has been linked to a variety of extremely serious side-effects.
The most commonly reported of the many Seroquel side effects is Diabetes. Seroquel can potentially cause the onset of diabetes in patients. In fact, patients taking Seroquel were more than 3 times more likely to develop diabetes than were those taking older antipsychotics. In relation to this, Seroquel causes unhealthily sharp increases in cholesterol levels, blood sugar imbalances, and even obesity!
Furthermore, elderly patients taking Seroquel for dementia have a substantially increased risk of fatality according to a over a dozen studies conducted by the FDA.
While there is a black box warning for Seroquel, this drug is still on the market and is still causing irreversible harm to patients.
The off-label uses of Seroquel provide more alarming news. For example, children are often prescribed Seroquel for pediatric disorders such as ADHD and Tourette’s Syndrome. The FDA has never approved Seroquel for use on children, but the practice of prescribing it to youngsters has been widespread and it has been considered as the prime suspect in dozens of juvenile deaths.
Seroquel seems to be one of the most dangerous drugs on the market, but the 2 billion dollars in sale of this drug make it a lucrative product.
