Our expert says:
Most antidepressants CAN cause weight gain in SOME of those who take it. Changing to a different brand of the same drug obviously wouldn't make a differentce, and yes, its possible that on a different antidepressant you might have the same benefiots without this particular side-effect. Discuss this with your prescribing shrink, to consider other options, and diet and exercise still work.
