Does quetiapine boost mood?

Quetiapine is primarily used to treat mental health conditions such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depressive disorder. While quetiapine may have some mood-stabilizing effects, it is not considered a first-line treatment for boosting mood.

However, quetiapine may be used as an adjunct treatment for depression in individuals who have not responded adequately to other antidepressant medications. It may also be used off-label to treat other conditions that may affect mood, such as anxiety disorders and borderline personality disorder.

It is important to note that the effectiveness of quetiapine as a mood booster may vary from person to person and may depend on the underlying cause of the mood disturbances. The decision to use quetiapine or any other medication for the treatment of mood disorders should be made in consultation with a healthcare provider, who can help determine the most appropriate treatment plan based on individual needs and medical history.

There are various forms of drugs available, such as tablets or liquids, and each may have a separate patient information leaflet (PIL) for different doses. It is important to refer to the PIL for the specific form and dose of the drug that you have been prescribed.
