Qutipin 25 mg contains the active ingredient Quetiapine, which belongs to a group of medicines known as antipsychotics. Quetiapine is FDA approved for schizophrenia, acute manic episodes, and treatment for major depressive conditions associated with bipolar disorder. Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that affects how an individual thinks and behaves. Bipolar disorder causes extreme mood swings leading to depression. Antipsychotic drugs affect the level of certain chemicals in the brain that supports communication between nerve cells. Brain disorders may be due to an imbalance of certain chemicals (dopamine and serotonin). When these chemicals become out of balance, they may cause some of the symptoms you may be experiencing. Qutipin treats psychotic symptoms such as delusions, hallucinations, disorganization, and cognitive dysfunctions. This antipsychotic drug is not a cure for these mental health disorders but can help reduce symptoms and make you feel better. The exact mode of action is not known. However, it believes that Quetiapine adjusts the balance of these chemicals.
Always take Qutipin 25 mg the same way your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor if you are unsure regarding the dosing regimen. Your doctor will decide the starting dose. The daily maintenance dose will depend on your illness. Depending on your condition, you will take your tablets once daily before bedtime or twice daily. Swallow the tablet with a glass full of water. You can take your tablet before or after consuming food. Avoid drinking grapefruit juice while you are taking Quetiapine. It can affect the mechanism of action of this antipsychotic drug. Do not discontinue treatment even if you feel better unless your doctor instructs you. You may require dose adjustments if you are elderly or have liver problems. The tablets should not be given to children and adolescents aged under 18 years.
Do not take Qutipin 25 mg if you are allergic to the ingredients of this medicine. To help avoid side effects, speak to a doctor before taking Quetiapine tablets. Talk to your doctor about any health problems you may have, including if you have had a history of drug allergy, alcohol use, high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, or history of seizures. Your doctor should be aware of your medical history. Antipsychotic drugs like Qutipin have been linked to a higher mortality rate in elderly patients with dementia (mental disability including loss of memory). If you have thoughts of harming or killing yourself, contact your doctor immediately or go to a hospital immediately.
