How long would I need to be off of quetiapine for the extra weight gained to come off?

I'm not really sure. It probably depends on how high a dose you were on and how much weight you gained. Quetiapine sucks, eh? I gained 87 lbs on that crap and I am now slowly coming off of it in hopes of losing weight too.

Just a quick one:
My pdoc prescribed me metformin (a drug for diabetes) to help combat the weight gain from quetiapine - this was the first time I went on it and didn't gain any weight :) - I'm already obese so it was important I didn't
May be worth an ask with your own dr?
