Anger and mood swings are not just depression only symptoms. Also I have taken alot of depression
meds and yes they cause weight gain
. I understand, cause I gained like 40pounds in two years from meds. I took , paxil, zoloft,prozac, lithium, depakote, they all cause weight gain. Especially if you are changing around your meds, also you will go through horrible mood swings when you are changing meds. Your shrink should have told you that.
