Quetiapine and training

    Hi there,

    I am prescribed Quetiapine for a chronic mental health condition and I was wondering if any athletes out there are on it too and how it affects your performance exercise wise and your day-to-day life. I know it can impact one’s metabolism and also increases cravings for unhealthy foods. I have also had some joint pain which I suspect comes from this medication. Unfortunately, I have tried changing my meds before and it didn’t go very well so I don’t see switching drugs as a viable option right now. I would like to start increasing my activity levels again and I would be interested to know if anyone has any tips/adaptions that they have found help or are required for exercising on this medication.

    Thanks for any help/stories.
