... better however I have put on 18kgs during this time. My eating habits have not change and I still excersise regularly. Could this weight gain be because of my medication?
Hi, i'm glad your depression is under control. Unfortunately weight gain when taking antidepressants is common. The medication causes an increased appetite alongside reduced metabolic rate for burning calories. Calorie control and exercise is important, but if you are already doing this it is difficult to make any other suggestions? I'm assuming you don't have thyroid issues? Maybe you should discuss the weight increase with your doctor...
