You don't mention which Lilly antidepressant you are on, but I presume it is Lilly-Fluoxetine? I looked up the latter and Trepiline in my copy of MIMS which lists all medications currently used in SA, and weight gain is not mentioned in relation to the Fluoxetine. For Trepiline both weight gain and weight loss are listed, so this is one of those drugs that can cause either condition depending on how the individual patient reacts. You will have to monitor your weight to see if Trepiline has a weight gain or a weight loss effect on you and if you should develop either conditions, then discuss this with the prescribing physician.
