I have weight gain and high sugar problems with actual meds. Zyprexa and lexapro. They made me insulin resistant. Among the meds you have tried, what antipsychotics and antidepressants have been weight neutral and havent raised your blood sugars as much?

Abilify has caused me to gain 30 lbs, but it doesn't affect my blood sugars at all. I get blood work drawn annually. Of course, everyone will react differently to meds. 


ETA: Moving this to misc meds forum. 


ETA again: Effexor has not caused me any problems either.

I have the same problem with Seroquel


I solved the problem by joining Weight Watchers, losing 28 lbs, and now my blood sugar level and cholesterol is normal.

I really like Seroquel so I am very pleased.  And I did NOT want to become diabetic....which was the direction I was heading.
