> > Hi, all--I'm a newbie. I have been on Seroquel XR (300mg 1x/day) for about six weeks (for "treatment-resistant depression"--lifelong depressive here), and so far, I *hate* the side effects. I want to (and do) eat everything in sight, and am as a result gaining weight (very easy for me to gain--hard to lose).
> > I *am* sleeping more regularly, but I'll trade insomnia for weight gain any day. Also, I've found that I now have low-blood-sugar-like symptoms when I haven't eaten in a while. I become VERY agitated and anxious (I also take 0.5mg lorazepam (Ativan) up to 3x/day or as needed) when it's past time for me to have eaten.
> > Am I imagining this? I'm not diabetic and have never had high blood sugar (had ex-boyfriend who was and tested my blood). I have regular med checks and internal doc check-ups w/CBCs, etc. I have hypothyroidism, for which I take 0.075mg levothyroxine (Synthroid) 1x/day.
> > I also take bupropion (Wellbutrin XL) 300mg 1x/day and topiramate (Topamax) 50mg 2x/day for migraine/headache prevention.
> > Anyone had similar side effects with Seroquel? I'm *very seriously* considering asking the doc if I can go off it when I see him again in two weeks.
> > Sorry for the long post! Thanks for any help/advice!

Also, I would like for you to look at this video if you want to discuss with me.
You see, I have no kick against you (redacted by respondent), as long as they don't (redacted by respondent).
Here is a video that I think could have the potential to be life-saving to those that watch it.
