Our expert says:
Your diet does not seem excessive, so I am sure that this change in weight is due to the medication. Please discuss this with the treating dr as he/she may be able to suggest changes to the dose, alternative treatment, etc, so prevent this unfortunate side-effect. You can try combining a low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'Slimming Diet' for a copy) with regular exercise to keep your weight in check and/or reduce it.
