Seroquel Can Cause Acne

5 posts in this topic

I don't have the proof MYSELF, however my Nutritionist did some research on it and told me a side effect of Seroquel (Quetiapine) is Acne. Which could be one of the contributors to my acne, as I never had acne before Seroquel. I've stopped taking Seroquel to see if it is one of the causes, so far I don't even feel like I need it anymore.

It makes sense as it basically makes you incredibly drowsy, who knows what it does. But just thought I'd post this somewhere if any of you take this medication.

Yes Seroquel can cause acne. I am a psychologist and I remember this is one of the side effects. Actually most psychotropic meds can cause acne.

I find it interesting how my Psychologist didn't tell me this, in fact they said not to look it up at all. How long does it usually take for the side effects of Seroquel (such as acne) to wear off and go?

I started taking this medication last week and my acne has gotton steadily worse despite having been using Aknemycin for the last 3 weeks for my already bad enough acne! My face was starting to clear up nicely but now it looks awful. I'm going to stop taking Quetiapine (seroquel) No way am I going to take something that actually has side effects of making acne worse.

Does anyone know if the side effects will wear off in time?
