I take Seroquel in combination with three others. I still don't sleep very well, though better than before I was on all four, but nobody is willing to up my dosages very high because I am insanely sensitive to all medication. I haven't noticed any weight gain since starting any of them, and the only real side effects I have seen that can be directly attributed to one of the medications has been since they added the newest prescription.

That's something to look forward to...my daughter was diagnosed with oppositional defiance disorder as well.

I'm way late on this but wanted to comment anyway. My 13 year old daughter was just put on Seroquel by our psychiatrist. She hasn't been "officially" diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, but her psychiatrist really believes she has it. Lola was diagnosed with ADHD and Oppositional Defiant Disorder years ago along with possible Asperger's Syndrome. I just had a meeting to evaluate her continued need for special education services with the school and they've recommended that we get her updated evaluations. So much fun.

I'm still trying to lose the weight as well. It was the only medication that had me gaining so much weight. It was effective until I started seeing bugs. Even then it helped keep the mood swings at bay.

I was on Trazodone for years, but it finally quit working. Lunestra didn't work either

I took 900mg (slept basically all day and night) for a whole summer and gained 30lbs in that time. It was horrible, but for a long time it was the only thing that would make me sleep. Thankfully now I'm off of it and instead am on a ton of other sedatives. Still trying to lose the weight though.

You know, I don't. It was mid-range though. Sorry.

I took it about 2.5 years ago for about 6 months. I gained a lot of weight on it (50 lbs) and was consistently groggy in the mornings. We eventually took me off of it because I started seeing bugs out of the corner of my eyes all the time. It did work well though.

I used to take it a long time ago. It did have weight gain side effects for me. I also recall it leaving me having strange dreams.
