How Queta 25 works
Queta 25 is an atypical antipsychotic. It works by modulating the action of certain chemical messengers in the brain that affect thoughts.

- It is less likely to cause heart problems and movement disorders than other antipsychotics.
- It may take 4 to 6 weeks to see treatment effects. Keep taking it as prescribed.
