Welcome to the site.
Have you got your Thyroid hormone levels checked since thyroid hormone dysfunction may lead to weight gain despite poor appetite ?
Well, in that case you need to first get your Thyroid profile done so as to see if your thyroid gland is functioning properly or not because usually in Hypothyroidism one tends to gain weight despite eating less so instead of blaming this directly on the anti depressant you need to do some home work in terms of finding out if this is due to something like deranged thyroid function which then will change the direction of treatment plan and warrant addition of synthetic thyroxine instead of a water pill and continuing with the anti depressant as it is.
So my humble opinion is that please do not take any hasty random decisions but do some more study of the cause by getting the necessary investigation done as described above. You may discuss this with your family doctor and hopefully he / she will be able to throw more light on it and justify my suggestion.
I hope this helps.
Wish you all the best.
