that is a hard question. first of all, drugs used for depression work many different ways for many different people. i will tell you this, i do think that the majority of these drugs do cause you to put on a little weight. the sweating thing, i am not sure about that though. couldn't tell by your profile, but your not of the age to be experiencing the "BIG CHANGE" are you. you can just check out a few of the drugs side effects and that may help you more than me
Not necessarily! There are lots of different categories of anti-depressants which can all work in different ways, MAOI's, SSRI'S (Which is what i'm on), SNRI's, TCA's etc, etc. Different drugs can be selected depending on the individual and their situation. I have been on 3 different types in my life, and have had different side effects and benefits from each one. No loss of sex drive on SSRI's, although a bit of night sweats, and I do agree that more often than not weight gain is a common side effect of them all unfortunately!! You need to find which is bet for you and your Dr should know which group to choose from. Sometimes a bit of trial and error is required. Good luck!
