Our expert says:
It is paradoxical that antidepressants can either cause weight gain or weightloss depending on the individual patient and the type of antidepressant you were using. At the same time depression itself can also cause both loss or gain. So in your case it is possible that either the Nuzak caused weightloss or kept your weight steady and that stopping the medication has caused your weight gain or that your depression has returned and that this is responsible for the weight gain. If you stopped the medication under the care of a medical dr or psychiatrist then you should discuss this weight gain with the dr. He/she will advise if you have developed depression again and if you need to use the medication once more. In the meanwhile, try increasing your exercise intensity or reduce your fat intake to lose the 4 kgs.
