Information about Tab. Qutipin SR-200mg

Qutipin Tablet contains Quetiapine as the active ingredient which is an atypical antipsychotic. It works by modulating the action of certain chemical messengers in the brain that affect thoughts.

Antagonism at D2 receptors relieves positive symptoms while antagonism at 5HT2A receptors relieves negative symptoms of schizophrenia.
