Hello!

No Seroquel has not been shown to adversely affect testosterone levels..

Endocrine effects have included hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism and diabetes...

It is known to often increase appetite.. so weight gain may be associated with this.. weight gain is common with Seroquel and this may tie in with what you have noticed as for the increase in body fat vs muscle ...
