Thank you for the additional information. In view of the fact that you have only been taking the contraceptive pills for such a short time and that Nuzak only lists weightloss as a side-effect, I don't think that medications are causing your rapid weight gain. In such a case, I would seriously think of having both the evaluation by the Endocrinologist and a clinical psychologist that I suggest in my previous reply. Despite taking an antidepressant you may still be suffering from depression and/or using food as a crutch. The Endocrinologist should be able to determine more accurately if you do happen to have a condition such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or a rarer condition that is causing this pronounced weight gain.
I do hope you will be able to pinpoint why you are gaining weight so that you can stop this relentless progression.
