Seroquel & PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)
Seroquel is used as an off-label treatment for PTSD.
One of Seroquel's main effects on humans is sedation. This effect is what provides relief for PTSD.
Post-traumatic stress disorder is a term for certain psychological consequences of exposure to, or confrontation with, stressful experiences that the person experiences as highly traumatic.
These experiences can involve actual or threatened death, serious physical injury, or a threat to physical and/or psychological integrity.
