British Columbia latest to offer Seroquel XR

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

The British Columbia government has added AstraZeneca's schizophrenia drug Seroquel XR (quetiapine fumarate) to its PharmaCare formulary, joining Quebec and Ontario in providing the extended-release formulation as a treatment option. The addition of the drug, which offers a once-daily alternative to many other schizophrenia treatments, has been praised by Gary Blacken, executive director of the British Columbia Schizophrenia Society, who said Seroquel XR would be easy to use, accessible and could help improve both the management of the illness and patients' quality of life.
