Our expert says:
CBT would be at least as effective as any AD, but I don't know any source of free therapy, except perhaps in the dept of psychiatry or psychology of your nearest medical school.
Some people do put on more weight while on some particular ADs ( the effect isn't entirely predictable ). If 20 mg of the drug isn't helping enopugh, a lower dose is unlikely to be better ; and it is not wise for you to increase such doses on your own. Why not try a medical school or state hospital clinic for review - maybe you'd do better on a different drug
