No. Yes, of course, your diet ( and exercise ) will affect your weight, whatever drugs you are taking, but most antidepressants do have an additional effect of encouraging weight gain. It affects some of us more than others, and you may have less of this effect on other antidepresants ( Cymbalta not being uniquely marvellous compared with alternatives, though some docs seem hooked on prescribing it ).
