Answer

Hello and thanks for posting.

Seems like weight gain is an issue for you- before going onto medications, I'd strongly suggest speaking to your doctor about medical conditions (like hormonal or mental health issues) that can affect your weight. Also discuss your dietary and exercise habits. For many, nutrition consultation or alternatively, a nutrition and exercise program, in conjunction with medical monitoring can be very effective. For difficult cases, even weight reduction (bariatric) surgery can be considered.

Hope that's helpful, BY
