Our expert says:
In my experience EVERY AD MIGHT cause weight gain in SOME people who take it, but NONE of them cause weight gain in EVERYONE who takes it. So discuss this with your psychiatrist, and explore - there is very likely to be an effective antidepressant, among those available in generic ( equivalent but cheaper ) form, which will benefit your mood but not cause weight gain. And o course work on diet and exercise to lose the extra weight you may have gained - with the bonus that better diet and exercise is likely to improve your mood, too.
And Maria's points are important - maybe give it another week to see if the symptoms fade
