Our expert says:
Almost ALL antidepressants, and many other psuych drugs, help to cause weight gain in SOME people, none do it in everyone, and careful diet and exercise generally help. The most important thing is whether the drug, in this case Geodon, actually helps you significantly --- if not, then another alternative needs to be considered by your doctor ; but if it is really helpful, maybe a concentration on diet and exercise may reduce this annoying side-effect.
