I have pretty bad metabolic response to quetiapine - weight gain, raised lipids and raised blood sugar. I eat no refined sugar and eat 2200 calories a day but I weigh 160kg and this is rising despite a normal calorie intake.
It is clear quetiapine is the culprit. Any suggestions?
How’s your motility? I ask, but I don’t really want to know I’ve read several places that drastically slowed motility is a problem with clozapine, and that doctors recommend probiotics and laxatives to alleviate the effects.
I suspect it’s a problem with other meds, too. If it is for you, maybe ask about what treatments might be safe for it?
I’d stick with it still. My dietician said it’s possible not to lose weight for months even though you’re in calorie deficit. They don’t understand why this happens. Then you start to lose weight again.
