About this information
This information explains the evidence summary about the off-label use of quetiapine for generalised anxiety disorder (GAD). The evidence summary is an overview of the available information about this medicine. It aims to help prescribers and people who are considering whether or not to use it. The summary does not contain recommendations from NICE on whether the medicine should be used, although NICE has previously said that people should not usually be offered medicines like quetiapine to treat GAD by their GP or other healthcare professional in primary care.
