Our expert says:
No antidepressan will force you to gain weight, though, especially if you have lost appetite and weight as p[art of the depression, they may make it easier for you to gain weight. But it sounds as though you may not have fully recovered from the Eating Disorder, and this itself may deserve more attention.
2 to three weeks is usually enough time or the appropriate expert to assess whether the specific antidepressant will be useful or should be changed.
With the combination of depression and a not fully resolved eating disorder, your treatment should be assessed and supervised by a specialist psychiatrist, and not only by a GP
