Our expert says:
Female hormone treatments can cause weight gain or loss depending on the individual and/or the type of hormone used. The same is true for many antidepressants which list both weightloss or weight gain as side-effects depending on the reaction of the individual patient. It is, therefore, possible that the injection and/or the antidepressant are causing weight gain and/or increased appetite. Discuss these reactions with the dr(s) who is/are prescribing your medications to see if you can change to other types of medication. Counteract this effect by doing plenty of exercise every day and reducing your fat intake.
