Quetiapine - why do people gain weight?

Hi, Queen! No one, even the manufacturer, knows exactly what causes weight gain in some people. Side effect? Expectation of weight gain? Part of the disorder?
It's not only Seroquel but most of the atypical APs. I was on Zyprexa and gained 20lbs, but losing now on Geodon. Seroquel is considered sort of neutral along with Abilify and a couple of the newer drugs on the market. And remember, not everyone gains weight.
Best wishes, WC
