Seroquel and Borderline Personality Disorder

Borderline personality disorder can produce transient psychotic episodes that sometimes respond to atypical antipsychotics like Seroquel (quetiapine). Atypical antipsychotics help stabilize neurotransmitters in the brain, which can help control emotions and behavior. Initial research shows Seroquel may be useful in treating the impulsive behavior and other symptoms of borderline personality disorder. Seroquel seems to produce fewer adverse effects and is less likely to cause weight gain than other atypical antipsychotics in treating borderline personality disorder.
