... of them. My script is Seroquel XR 400 mg. Doc did not warn me to be careful and that drug could result in weight gain. Before I knew it I gained 50 pounds. This is very depressing of course. My question is -- if I am able to get off of this medication will I lose any of this weight? Has anyone else had this issue?

Was on seroquel about 6 years ago but still remember it vividly as it altered my life forever. I was in highschool at the time, gained about 20 pounds, the medication also caused me to become lathargic and VERY tired resulting in me missing 3 months of school due to a complete inability to get out of bed. Try it for yourself, I know many people who benefit from the medication and many who have experienced side affects similar to mine. My only suggestion would be, if you have side affects (such as gaining weight), know that the side affects will not decrease/go away unless the med is out of your system for good. I did have difficulty taking the weight back off post-seroquel but it was possible.
