Seroquel side effects

Frequent adverse effects include:
- Agitation;
- Dizziness;
- Drowsiness;
- Headache;
- Stomach upset;
- Weight gain;

Seroquel can cause orthostatic hypotension (a drop in blood pressure upon standing that can lead to dizziness or fainting) especially during the first 3-5 day period of treatment, when it is restarted after temporary discontinuation, and after an increase in the dose. The risk of orthostatic hypotension is about 1 in 100 (one of every hundred patients who takes Seroquel). Seroquel frequently causes tiredness (1 in 5 patients), especially during the first 3-5 days of treatment. Because of this tiredness, care should be exercised in any activity requiring mental alertness such as operating a motor vehicle or hazardous machinery. Less common side effects include seizures (1 in 125 patients) and hypothyroidism (1 in 250 patients).

As with other antipsychotics, long-term use of Seroquel may lead to irreversible tardive dyskinesia, a neurologic disease which consists of involuntary movements of the jaw, lips, and tongue.

A potentially fatal complex referred to as neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS) has been reported with antipsychotic drugs.
Patients who develop NMS may have:
- Altered mental status;
- Excessive sweating;
- Heart arrhythmias;
- High fevers;
- Irregular pulse or blood pressure;
- Muscle rigidity;
- Rapid heart rate;
