Thanks for your question.
Seroquel in elderly person should be used with caution.
This can cause dizziness, falls, even heart problem.
If seroquel needs to be used the dose should be around 50 to 100 mg daily not more than that to minimize the side effects.
You should discuss with his doctor regarding the other options.
There is also possibility of a stroke.
This should be check out at the earliest in the emergency room.

Best wishes,
