I'm was on 100mg of Seroquel at first and I gained a little weight, then they changed it to 200 mg after I had my baby and I've gained 15 pounds on top of what I weighed while pregnant. They changed me to Seroquel 200 mg nightly and 300 mg twice daily of Lithium and I've gained 20 pounds in 3 weeks, i go to the gym 3-4 times a week and I cut out soda and what not and I'm gaining too much weight. I am now 245 pounds. over 90 pounds over my pre pregnancy weight. I just want to find something that helps me sleep at night and won't cause me to gain alot of weight.
Seroquel is well known for this and part could be still it in your system. Give the Lithium a bit more time to see if it could still be the Seroquel most people I know have gained very little on Lithium but it is possible and if it is it talk to the doctor again. There is an answer just a matter of finding the right one but lets make sure it's still not the Seroquel. Chuck1957
