Need antipsychotic : For your sleep it would be nice to use an antipsychotic other than seroquel, however, if the seroquel is working, you have to weigh the risk/ benefit ratio of possible relapse.It is hard to recommend something without knowing your formal diagnosis. In general, the more sedating an antipsychotic is, the more prone to weight gain it can be. Discuss saphris (asenapine) with your doc. It is sedating, but less wt.
