Difficult to say - I answered a question from someone else on the same topic the other day, and the answer to you is much the same. There is a chance that your training will help, but if the medication produces a side effect of weight gain, then unfortunately, no amount of exercise will help, because the medication will win over the training and diet. So it's important that if you feel the weight gain on the meds is excessive, you look at other options. There are many options for you, and obviously, you don't want to compromise on your response to the meds just to prevent a little weight gain, so you need to be practical and sensible, but if you are going to gain weight that makes you unhappy, then it kind of defeats the purpose of the meds to begin with. So perhaps this is something you need to discuss with your treating doctors, and reach a compromise that results in the best possible health (mental and physical).
