Our expert says:
Diet and exercise are still, annopyingly, the key ways to control weight-gain. Discuss this with your doc, as if you are indeed depressed ( and it sounds as though you are ), an AD would help ---but not all of them make everyone gain weight. Maybe he could select another, though obviously it makes sense he'd want you to go back on the one that worked last time round. Also ask about CBT counselling ( the Anxiety-Depression Support group lists some of those who can provide this ) which is very effective in treating depression, and wiothout side-effects !
