Serotonin binds to a large family of receptors on neurons. They are referred to
collectively as 5-HT receptors, and are usually denoted by a number (x) meaning a
major subtype, and a letter (n) denoting an isoform within that subclass. So you
often see 5-HT receptors referred to in this form: 5-HTxn, ex. 5-HT1A.

Seroquel (quetiaprine) is a potent 5-HT1A agonist and also a 5-HT2A/2C antagonist.
Stimulation of 5-HT1A might be a problem if you are experiencing serotonin syndrome,
so, yes, I think seroquel administration could perhaps contribute to serotonin
