Did anyone else hear this? My doctor told me this today when I told him something is wrong because I keep getting hungry.

I’m on Seroquel as well. It does cause me to have more of a sweet tooth. I have to do my best to not have unhealthy foods readily available in my kitchen.

Do you know when I was first on it I ate 12 twix bars in the night lol. Great job on keeping your kitchen stocked with healthy items.

Twix bars are so good, I can’t blame you one bit for that. Yeah the self control has to happen at the grocery store because my self control isn’t very good when I have bad foods in my house.

Seroquel is very famous for causing weight gain. I didn't gain an ounce though, I guess it depends on the person.

On 600mg down from 750mg. Some nights l skip my dose as l know l won’t get to sleep from my hunger pangs. I hate it but it’s nearly the only antipsychotic l can just about tolerate. My sympathies to anyone who constantly feels hungry on it (maybe try the MR?).
The thirst though l cannot control (l sound like a Blade movie) - l drink so much Coke to get rid of the sluggishness and to quench my never ending need to drink.

He raised mine up to 600 I think I needso change my eating plan in order to keep up with the amount of hunger I have so I'm thinking about just eating fruits and vegetables again and if I'm craving warm foods I'll just eat cooked vegetables. Before I only used to eat raw fruits and vegetables

Sounds like a great plan.
