> I had a hard time with using a drug with that name 'antipyschotic', after all, I'm not psychotic, right? But if you think about it, psychosis is just your mind creating too much stuff on its own, and so is OCD. It's just the nature of the thoughts that are different.


Hi.

It is tempting to pigeon-hole drugs by giving them a label based upon their initial clinical usage. Seroquel is not an antipsychotic, rather, it is a chemical compound possessing properties that when used as a drug has the ability to mitigate psychotic states. However, it may, and does, possess other properties as well - antidepressant, mood-stabilizing, hypnotic, anxiolytic, antiemetic, etc. The label given a drug or the clinical catergory it has been placed into does not dictate its usage nor represent a diagnosis of the person using it.
