What anti-depressants will either help me lose weight or not make me gain weight at all?

I'm on Effexor and it's made me gain close to 30lbs since I started it a couple months ago. So now I'm depressed about my weight gain and the meds make the weight gain worse. Does anyone know an anti-depressant I can suggest to my doctor that won't make me gain weight? I've ate healthy and exercise but this damn meds keep me from shedding weight.

  • I think you should tell your doctor how you feel about the weight gain and that you would like to try something else without that side effect. Just come straight out and tell him. A med is suppose to help, not cause more problems.
