Don't stop taking a medication because it is causing weight gain, especially without consulting your pdoc about it.

I went off Seroquel for that reason under pdoc's supervision and I relapsed badly and it was not until several months later when i went back on it that I started feeling well again. Seroquel still causes me to gain weight but because i'm aware of it I'm proactive, exercising, watching my diet etc (some of the time) about keeping the weight off. It's hard, but much harder if you relapse into mania/depression and end up hospitalised.

In my opinion mental health is extremely important, and I will never jepordize it again.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
