Question about Seroquel (Quetiapine Fumarate)

Has anyone had experience with the medication Seroquel (quetiapine fumarate)?

After a series of referrals, my current psychiatrist prescribed it in accordance with a theory that my bulimia is a symptom of untreated Bipolar II Disorder. While I like the way it regulates my moods, the elevated blood sugar and very minor weight gain have helped old habits resurface; prior to taking Seroquel I'd been binge/purge free for eleven months.

After looking at two other medications, I've decided that this side-effect is preferable to the risks of other medications, but I'm still curious if anyone else has had a similar experience (and maybe some success avoiding this side effect).
