Our expert says:
Good to hear that the medicin has been so helpful. Weight gain is a POSSIBLE side-effect with many anidepressants, but is not compulsory. When becoming Depressed, some of us eat more, and gain weight ; and some eat less, and lose it, so some, recovering from depression, gain weight as part of a return to normalcy.
There's no chemical way to counteract this potential effect ( in SOME people ) on a drug. But consult a dietician to be sure you're on an optimal diet and exercise plan, that is likely to be effective and not excessive, and you should be fine.
