• Antipsychotics have been abused and misused by inpatients and outpatients.
• Most published case reports of antipsychotic abuse involve quetiapine, although some describe misuse of other agents, including olanzapine.
• Serotonin, histamine, and α-adrenergic neurotransmitter systems may play a role in second-generation antipsychotics’ abuse potential.
• Although individuals have misused quetiapine and olanzapine, evidence indicates that these drugs may be effective for treating substance use disorders.
