I haven't taken Seroquel, but my husband was on it for about a year. He gained 30 lbs, became extremely irritable, and when he gradually started to wean himself off of it, he ended up in the ER twice because he got so sick he became dehydrated. Seroquel is scary stuff.
My issues are severe anxiety, depression, and ADHD. I was taking Celexa for years and didn't experience the weight gain, but I never felt 100%. Gaining weight because of the meds would be totally counterproductive. It would make me more depressed!
How do you like lamictal? My psychiatrist suggested that as a possibility if we couldn't find a combination that worked well for me. I am so afraid of gaining weight because of meds!
