Decreasing Seroquel for Anxiety/Mood and its effects?

Hello, I have been on the following dosages of Seroquel for some anxuety issues:

2005-2010: 200 mgs at bedtime
2010-2011: 100 mgs at bedtime

since 2012 to now (early 2013) I have been on 50mgs of Seroquel at bedtime.

I wanted to ask for those with experience and knowledge on this medication or the anti psychotics in general:

-after I am down to 0 mgs of this medication, how long will it take for me to return to the way I was before starting the meciation in term of my make up.

-will the weight gain stop ( have went from 180 to 194 in the last 8 years)?
-will the metabolism be alright (speed up again)?
-will I be able to drink again normally?
-Do you think the negative effects it may have had on my body have been decreased since my body is used to the medication over these years
-*-And importantly, if there was any damage; after stopping the medication will I get better or has it been too many years?


thank you, it seems now the medicince is more for maintenance and not so much for use since I feel better now and I am looking to continue my tapering off..
