Our expert says:
Although weight gain is listed as a side-effect of Fluanxol, this does not mean that every patient using this medication will necessarily gain weight. Most side-effects do not occur in every patient. If you have 3 kg to lose you can apply the regimen you describe (1800 kcal diet and regular exercise) and you should start losing. Your change in habits (eating the stodgy winter diet and not exercising) have probably been responsible for any shift in weight you have experienced and not the medication.
