Hi what dose of seroquel are you on? there are a few variables ...since seroquel is suitable for may disorders it should help with lots of things at the right dose It could be seratonin syndrome if you have taken any painkillers or opiod type meds or any other antidepressants but def best to check with your doc !

100 or 200 seroquel.
No other meds.
Psych told me I was schizo.honestly have no symptoms of it.
Sick doctors tbh.i can barely get appointments.
They discharged me for year.they gave me meds that made me put on 7 stone.
No one would listen to me about my weight.it was awful

Hi it is awful that they don't listen i know it is hard Seriqual does put on the weight. If you can get an appt okay and tell your doctor don't ask that you want your med changed to one that does not put weight on. like abilify
there are newer meds that work better and help keep weight off. Just tell them okay make them listen hugs to you

Once pdocs have made a diagnosis they are very stubborn in retracting it which is probably why you are having a hard time getting them to listen about your other different symptons. I would definately see someone as you are feeling so unwell

agree with everyone else...its not good when pdocs have made a diagnosis, they just wont back down, and you can bet you can see 6 pdocs tell them the same thing and they would all diagnose something different.

it sure sounds like your meds need adjusting or changing.

its bad enough dealing with any illness but its clear that treatment has caused you more upset with the weight gain. maybe go swimming or walking or a gym, not only will it help with your it may help with the weight, but for sure talk to your doc about the meds causing the weight gain, 7 stone is a lot extra to carry and it wont help your mental health. damn docs!!!

good that you have insight into what is going on with you.

take care :hug:
