In reply to Seroquel and Weight Gain and food cravings...., posted by Pandabear on February 24, 2004, at 12:11:22

I am BPII and was put on Depakote. I gained 25lbs with increased food cravings. I have switched to Lamictal and the food cravings have gone away. I am glad to hear that when you stopped the Depakote you did lose weight.

I also am on Seroquel 75mg's at night. It is helping me to manage my hypomanic episodes. I did initially did gain a few pounds but then it stopped. You are on a very low dose and maybe that will help in any weight gain. The Lamictal I am on is also helping me to feel less depressed but I had to go very slowly with my dose increases. I am now on 175 mgs and am feeling much less depressed. I am not as scattered as I was and able to concentate more on what I am doing. Hope this helps.
