So for a very long time I have been sure, as well as a few different docs, that I have bipolar and ADD. I started Seroquel mid December and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I feel like a normal person now. I am a slim 29 year old woman, never really had issues with gaining weight, even after having kids I got skinny fast. But I have gone from a VERY comfortable size 2/4 to a fat ass tight size 8. Really no offense to anyone, but I only have 2 pairs of pant I can wear and it almost looks like I am pregnant. It hasn't helped that I had a hysterectomy on New Years Eve...all that sitting around eating anything I wanted. But now I am seeing that all of that eating what ever I wanted was due to the Seroquel. I literally will eat almost a whole apple pie in one night with out even realizing it. It is like I am a heroine addict and food is my drug. I have always been able to control what I eat but last night I ate probably 15 mini powdered donuts and a half of a bag of chips. I will not get off of Seroquel, but I am going crazy with my eating! And it's only after I take my meds. During the day, I am fine. I can eat fruits and veggies all day and be very happy, but once my meds kick in, I'm a beast. I am not really asking a question about this, I just had to gripe. Thanks for understanding!
