I have been working with a therapist for a few months now, and we decided it was time to try antidepressants. I have gained about 20 pounds in a year (I'm 19, 5'8 and 160 lbs) mostly because of over eating because of my depression as well as lack of energy to move around. I have never taken any kind of medication, so I am a bit nervous. I am not a generally anxious person, just melancholy. Has anyone had similar symptoms that this drug has heled alleviate?
