Our expert says:
The relationship between depression and weight gain or loss, and antidepressants and weight gain or loss, is rather complex. Some patients either lose or gain massive amounts of weight because they suffer from depression. On the other hand, antidepressants prescribed to treat depression can also either cause weightloss or weight gain depending on the individual patient's reaction. I am glad for your sake that the antidepressants have not increased your appetite or caused weight gain. It is always important to have regular checkups with the dr who is treating your depression, so that he/she can monitor factors like your weight, etc.
