Let me just point out that I did not tell him to quit or go cold turkey. Come on now. I just pointed out the very real weight gain potential, and recommended he speak with his doctor, not look for answers on the forum because it’s not designed to deal with medication effects.
Usually weight gain on antidepressants is more in the realm of 20-40 lbs, but it can vary a lot. I personally know someone for whom it was 100 lbs. Yes, for many there is first weight loss, and then the gain happens, but not always.
