Qutipin 200 mg treat symptoms of Schizophrenia in adults. Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that may result in hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, feeling depressed, anxious or thinking and behaviour that impairs daily functioning and can sometimes be disabling. Not all people with this mental condition have the same symptoms.
Antipsychotic medications affect the chemicals that allow communication between nerve cells. Brain disorders are usually due to certain chemicals in the brain being out of balance. These chemical imbalances may lead to the symptoms you may be experiencing. The exact mode of action of quetiapine is still unknown; however, it seems to adjust the balance of these chemicals.
