We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference.

Haven't had any problem with weight gain from anti-depressants. I have gained weight as a result of depression. Get down, and then start to eat.
Once you start feeling better on the anti-depressants, you are more likely to exercise also.
So, don't let the fear of weight gain get in the way of your mental well being. Get that cleared up and everything else will fall into place.

After trying asulfidine (sp) they put me on prednisone at 60-80 mg for five years. I'm 5'5 and the day I stopped (I got fed up) I weighed in at a slim (haha) 238.
