I've recently learned that Seroquel causes insulin resistance. Actually all atypicals do that, which is why they increase the risk for diabetes. I've been following a ketogenic diet to reduce my weight without success because insulin resistance inhibits ketosis. So the reason I'm fat is probably because of Seroquel and I will probably stay fat as long as I am on the drug. I'm also at risk of diabetes.
There is an atypical called Latuda (lurasidone) that apparently has less of an effect on weight gain. It causes no insulin resistance although it does have a slight effect on glucose tolerance. In other words, it's less likely you will get diabetes on Latuda.
Has anyone here had experience with the drug?
