Hi, i need some advise from a psychiatirct. I've been on Escitalopram for about 10 months now and i feel i've gained before of it. My diet is not very bad i eat 3 meals a day and a snack. I do have some chocolates everyday but i don't think some chocolates would have made me put on 10-11 kgs.Imnot sure if Escitalopram played a part in me putting on weight. The weight has mostly come on my waist and I'm concerned what i should do now. Whether its the medication thats made me put on weight or is it the chocolates. Sometimes i crave sugar and chocolates a lot and sometimes carbs but i still usually have smaller meals.Please advise
