Our expert says:
Antidepressants and anxiolytic medications can either cause weight gain or weight loss, depending on the patient's individual reaction, thus you evidently lost weight while using these medications. Depression is also a major cause of either weight loss or gain, so you have either regained weight lost during treatment, or your underlying depression is causing weight gain now that you are off the medications. You may find that just by cutting down on fatty foods and exercising regularly that you are able to lose these 4 kg again.
