I would say talk to your Doctor. Have them do a physical exam and look for other causes of weight gain. If the weight gain remains unexplained, your doctor will probably tell you to eat heart healthy foods, be exercising more, and limiting your intake of alcohol. If the problem continues consider switching to another antidepressant medication. Examples include Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil and Luvox.
My daughter has a serious case of PMDD. Like getting so spun up she can become violent. The other option is to go on birth control pills without the normal "week off" Depending on the doctor you might go for quite a few months before you take a break. *They don't think year round is a good idea. During her week off she has some other meds (chill pills) that she takes as needed. You might talk to your doctor about the drug that stops ovulation for months at a shot. *I can't remember what thats called. Good luck! I hope you get this figured out.
