If you are struggling with the manic highs and depressive lows of bipolar disorder, SEROQUEL XR may help.
SEROQUEL XR showed positive effects as early as the first week in a clinical trial. In an 8-week bipolar depression study, overall symptom scores of depression started to improve as early as the first week and continued to improve throughout the study (vs placebo) in some patients.
SEROQUEL XR is an extended-release tablet, which means medicine is delivered around the clock. Because it is an extended-release medicine, you only have to take it once a day, 3 to 4 hours before bedtime.
Everyone responds differently to therapy, so try to be patient and follow the directions of your health care professional. It is important to take SEROQUEL XR exactly as your health care professional has prescribed and to report your progress and any side effects to your doctor.
You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA.
