Parkinson`s and Seroquel

04/15/2010

Question:

My father is receiving seroquel, and has advanced parkinson`s. I believe he is overdrugged as he cannot stay awake enough to eat or drink, and remains in a stupor. What is a reasonable dose of seroquel? How much, how often? Thank you for help.

Answer:

There is no specific dose of Seroquel used for every person with Parkinson's Disease. This needs to be assessed and adjusted by the prescribing physician.
