Our expert says:
Weight gain is a possible side-effect of a number of antidepressants ( and, indeed, of Depression itself ). It would be wise to discuss this with your own shrink / doc who prescribed this medication, as you may not experience this problem with alternative ADs. Also ask about the avilability of CBT counselling / therapy, which is very effective and without side-effects !
