So I just got off the phone with a new psychiatrist and she prescribed me 25mg of Seroquel for my Bipolar. Does anyone else take this and found that it helps? I know that it is also known to be related to weight gain, so I'm curious if anyone else has taken this and experienced weight gain. I'm already overweight so this is a slight concern for me. I'm looking to try new medications as the last couple of medications I was taking wasn't helping at all, just awful side effects. Any input is greatly appreciated, thank you!

It does help if you stick with it. My other meds make me eat at night so not sure about the weight gain
