Seroquel can cause weight gain. Geodone isn't supposed to cause that much weight gain. I thought it was weight neutral but I could be wrong. I had an adverse effect to that one and started to lose too much weight. I am waiting for my psychiatrists appointment to hopefully change to abilify. Lamictal is a good drug in my books. It has helped me the most.
