Seroquel Fails to Treat Dementia With Parkinson-like Movements
Please note: While Weitz & Luxenberg is providing information about Seroquel and a number of physical and mental health-related side effects such as dementia that may have been linked to the use of Seroquel, the firm is only considering cases in which a child or adolescent was prescribed Seroquel and developed diabetes.
According to a May 7, 2007 report in month's Neurology, antipsychotic drug Seroquel (quetiapine) largely fails to effectively treat agitation or psychosis in patients with dementia with parkinson-like movement disorder.
A recently conducted study at the University of Rochester, New York, has found that Seroquel did not improve symptoms of agitation or psychosis any better than the placebo given to a total of 40 participants.
The researchers noted that the study results point to an ongoing need to develop more effective medications to treat psychiatric symptoms in patients with dementia.
