Our expert says:
If you only gained the 13 kg in the last year then it is probably not due to your taking the Nuzak which actually lists weightloss as a side-effect, not weight gain. Depression can, however, cause pronounced weight gain or loss, so I think you should discuss this with the dr who prescribed your Nuzak. The same applies to contraceptive and other female hormone treatments - in some patients they cause weight gain while other patients experience weightloss. It may be a good idea to ask the dr to check your female hormones, thyroid and insulin to see if you have an underlying hormone imbalance that is causing your weight gain.
I hope you can pinpoint which of these factors is responsible.
