Hello,
Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
Seroquel is a relatively safer antipsychotic medication, compared to others and hence even in overdose, people do not have serious side effects.
Please observe your friend for ' palpitations, shortness of breath, nausea, insomnia, agitation, irritability, ' e.t.c
If she shows this signs let me know. Otherwise nothing should happen, since it is only 50 mg overdose.

Regards.


Patient replied :

So she should be monitored over the next couple of days? Because she's sleep now. She takes it as an aid to sleep.

Hello,
No, she needs to be monitored only for 24 hours.
If she does not show any symptoms what I mentioned, then there is nothing to worry about.
Hope this was helpful,
Regards.
