Our expert says:
Many antidepressants may help to cause weight-gain, but none do it in everyone. Attent to healthier diet and exercise to control the weight gain, as controlling the depression should be the priority now. Wellbutrin might suit you better, but there are many choices, and your doc will need to consider them all. Also of course, CBT counselling is effective in treating Depression, and obviously doesn't cause weight-gain. ALl antidepressants seem to help reduce pain ; I'm not convinced that there is anything special about fluoxetine in this respect, and they have not all been properly evaluated for this possible benefit.
