I've been on Seroquel for about 5 months now. Have gained over 50 pounds, most of which were gained during my first 6 weeks on the drug. My dosage was just lowered to only 300mg PM dose, along with 10mg AM Lexapro & 20mg PM Lexapro and 800mg total daily of Tegretol. My pdoc doesn't consider how detrimental such weight gain is to me (age 40 w/ heart disease & diabetes rampant in my families). I partcipate in indigent care, so there are limitations in my care. He did agree to ADD Geodon to my cocktail, but not replace or reduce the Seroquel. Would doing so help me lose weight? I've read y'all's posts about taking a low dose for insomnia. Perhaps I could go that route? Anxiously awaiting your informed responses...
