I was recently treated for breast cancer. i have been prescribed seroquel for sleeping problems. I have heard that this drug can cause breast cancer. I am concerned about taking it. Is there any truth to this?
There's some evidence that Seroquel can increase breast cancer risk in animals, but this connection hasn't been shown in humans. Just make sure your oncologist knows that you've been prescribed Seroquel (in case your PCP prescribed it); s/he wouldn't put you in danger by prescribing anything that would promote the return of your cancer. Good luck - PJH
