Seroquel® (quetiapine fumarate) is an atypical antipsychotic drug manufactured by Astra Zeneca to treat the symptoms of schizophrenia and mania in bipolar disorder.
Why is Seroquel® dangerous?
Studies have shown Seroquel® has been linked to severe chronic illness causing diabetes (type II), pancreatitis, diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and death caused by pancreatitis. One of these studies by the Veterans Administration shows newer drugs approved to treat schizophrenia, including Seroquel®, were found to precipitate the onset of diabetes at a far faster rate than those not taking the drugs. Of the 877 veterans taking Seroquel®, 21 – or 2.39 percent – developed diabetes.
Seroquel® has also been linked to causing premature death, hypertension, stroke, obesity, cardiovascular disease, akathisia, and long-term neurological dysfunction. If you or a loved one have used Seroquel ® and experienced any of these serious side effects, contact us immediately as your legal rights have time deadlines.
