hi I have a question about seroquel. I started taking the medication and September of 2014 and had stopped since March of 2015. When I was taking this drug I was a hundred and fifty pounds and now I am at 210 I didn't really notice any different eating habits while on the medication just noticed a bit of laziness. I have been off for almost 5 months and I can't seem to get the weight off no matter what I do, so my question is is there something I can talk with my doctor about that can help me lose weight let me mention that I'm only 5 feet and 210 pounds I have always been small. I am extremely over weight for my height.
Have you tried exercising and eating in moderation? Have you thought about seeing a nutritionist? You can ask your pdoc for topamax it's used to help lose weight. That being said, we call it dopamax as it will make you dopey.
I know about Seroquel, i had put on about 30lbs with it. I believe a lot of it was water retention. Oh yhea, I'm on 20mg of furosemide for water retention, you could ask your pdoc about that.
Calorie deficient! I'm lucky enough(in this way only lol) to have add so I was prescribed adderall once again which they took me off of while I was on serqoul(gained 30lbs)
