I've heard nothing but bad stuff about Seroquel's side effects. It's caused me to gain 50 lbs approx. and I've just spoken about this with my psychiatrist. He agrees with me and we have halved my Seroquel from 100mg to 50 mg. Now I'm not sleeping well most nights, and get terrible nightmares.
Also, I've heard that the way that Seroquel makes you gain weight is that it causes you to crave carbs. The person telling me this said I should go on a "modified Atkins diet". Is this true?
