Seroquel and weight gain / hunger--DESPERATE!

Hi, hope I'm doing this right. I'm so glad I found this site. I've been on Seroquel for about 2 years, at least, but I only take 25 mg at night. I also take Wellbutrin, Topamax, and Lexapro. Over the last 6 mos. or so I have noticed that I am always hungry--physically, literally--hungry. About 3 hours after I eat a good meal, I start feeling shaky, light-headed, etc. and my stomach feels like it's going to growl. I get headaches a lot. I've gained about 10 pounds. This is NOT good because I am also a recovered/recovering bulimic. Two weeks ago I had blood work done and everything was within the normal range. But everything I'm reading here sounds just like me. My doctor says the Seroquel COULD be causing the hunger but that I'm on such a low dose it's unlikely. My therapist wants to think it's "emotional" hunger but it feels very real. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice? Thanks for any help!
