Comment:
I like the medication, it helps me with my blowing up at people, and made it easier for me to remember things. The only problem with me taking this type of the Seroquel is that I am supposed to take it an hour after I eat, but either I don't remember to take it, or I don't stop eating till like an hour before I eat dinner.

Comment:
I have been taking Seroquel for almost a year now, I'm 17 years old and have been diagnosed with bipolar depression. When I began taking Seroquel I weighed 98 lbs now I'm at 121. I take it at night therefore I sleep well but towards that end of the next day my ankles and knees begin to hurt quite severly.
