I have just started taking Seroquel SR at night, I’ve been on it a couple of weeks and have put on 4 pounds already! Do other people experience weight gain on this medication? Is there a way to control that?

      I eat before I take my pill. That way whwn it does kick in, I will only snack a bit here and there before falling asleep. I gained about 25lbs before figuring this out.

      I'm on it but not the XR, and have no appetite but that could be a side effect of my MDD idk

      It's known to make people put on weight. I had lost weight down to my goal, held it there for almost a year. Then started taking seroquel and went right back up!
