Pretty much all the medications used to treat such conditions can cause weight gain as side effects.

Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? The only thing you might be able to do is up your exercise and cut down on your calorie and fat intake.

Sandy I am also on 2mg. of ability, and 100 mg of pristiq, and am gaining weight, but depression is so much better, and doing more now, talking to people, and ect. So I will try to just control what I eat, so hungry a lot. Eat every 2 hrs, protein and salad and fruit to keep u filled up
