It can cause weight gain....there is actually a lot of bipolar meds that can cause weight gain.  Abilify, Seroquel, and Risperidone can sometimes cause weight gain.
That being said it is often a small percentage of people that experience weight gain from these medicines.  I take Seroquel and for the first month or so I started gaining a little weight but I started forcing myself to eat a descent breakfast, a small lunch, and a healthy dinner.  I try to not eat too late in the evening (after 6:00) and I never eat right before bed.
