I've been taking seroquel to sleep for 3 years now. I started out on 15mg and eventually ended up on 700mg. I gained a lot of weight but when I lowered it back to 150 I lost it all. The reason I'm asking about loosing the weight is because I've recently gone up to 300mg because I couldn't sleep and I've gained 40 pounds and I'm worried I won't be able to loose it again. I gained 40lbs while on 700mg is there a reason as to why I still gained so much weight even on a lower dose? Will I still be able to loose the weight if I lower my dosage again?

What are somethings I can do to speed up the weight lose?

And finally what is a good alternative to seroquel I can use to sleep?

I'm desperate for answers. I've never felt more self conscious in my entire life.
