    It was Zxprexa (Olanzapine) for me :dry:

    Has anybody experienced weight gain with any medication?

    Seroquel....
    It does good for my sleeping, not sure about the moods. Weight gain== caused me to want lots of sweets, chocolates, pie, cheesecake, cookies, donuts...MAN, at least I've only gained 5-10 lbs in 1 1/2 year.
    Plan to cut back and substitue fruits. AAGGGGGrrrr!

    Seroquel. It's given to me for my insomnia.....but it can cause weight gain, and has with me. :dry: But it helps, you just gotta watch what you eat cuz like some meds make you lose your appetite, but this usually makes you hungry. :munch:

    When I first went on Microgynon 30 (contraceptive pill) I gained quite a lot of weight because it made me really hungry! But that was okay, 'cause I was probably too light anyway.
