I have a question regarding cancer, weight loss and the drug seroquel. I recently loss 12 pounds in 6 weeks and thought I had cancer. But, I started to gain weight again about the same time that I started taking seroquel. In addition, I have barretts esophagus, and my stomach is upset a lot. I wonder if the weight loss, if its from cancer, can be masked by seroquel which I understand can make a person gain weight? Im taking 50mg of seroquel for a sleep -aid, and wondered about this

i don't think that weight loss caused by cancer can be masked by seroquel.
It is progressive and very difficult to deal with if the cancer is not treated and responds to treatment.
Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
