I gained 100 lbs. on antidepressents. I've since lost 25lbs. I was taken off all my meds that cause weight gain except lithium. I have to be on that or I get suicidal. Exercise is a good thing to do even if it's a little. I have been doing some home exercises and walking when I can and it helps. So get up and exercise doing something.
