Namaste,

Seroquel is an antipsychotic medication. It works by changing the actions of chemicals in the brain.

Seroquel is used to treat the symptoms of psychotic conditions such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder (manic depression).

Abilify is an antipsychotic medication. It works by changing the actions of chemicals in the brain.

Abilify is used to treat the symptoms of psychotic conditions such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder (manic depression). It is also used together with other medications to treat major depressive disorder in adults.

Although both medications are atypical anti-psychotics and their action is basically the same, the side effects one may expeerience are somewhat different from each other. And, as you know different people experience different side effects from various medications.

You might also note that Abilify can also be used to treat depression, whereas Seroquel is not normally prescribed for that disorder.

Less serious side effects of Seroquel may include:

dizziness, drowsiness, or weakness;

dry mouth, runny nose, sore throat;

nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, constipation;

blurred vision, headache, anxiety, agitation;

breast swelling or discharge;

missed menstrual periods; or

weight gain.

Whereas less serious side effects of Abilify may include:

choking or trouble swallowing;

dizziness, drowsiness, or weakness;

constipation, mild stomach upset;

headache, anxiety;

sleep problems (insomnia); or

weight gain.

I hope this provides you with enough information to satisy your needs.
