Insomnia, Weight Issue

I was previously diagnosed with OCD and bi polar. But have come out of it. I'm on prescription for Qutipin 100 mg and Tryptomer as I do not get sleep at all for days together if im not on meds. And because of Quitipin I have gained 20kgs. Please suggest what can be done to reduce the weight and get sleep as leaving the medication will just stop me from getting any sleep literally.
