I totally empathize with you. Seroquel has caused me to gain 85 pounds. I ballooned from a size 8 to a size 18 and I hate it.

Having to use seoquels to sleep is causing me to gain now as well. My niece today posted a year after pic of herself after gastric bypass last year this day. She was morbidly obese, though still beautiful. She has lost over half her weight. Is very proud. I still worry about the long term effects of such severe interventions in the long run but for now she is very happy to be playing with her three year old in ways she never did before and feeling much healthier. Makes me feel guilty about being concerned with my moderate and age appropriate weight gain from seroquels.
