Perhaps you are retaining more water? Are you a midnight snacker? I remember hearing something along the lines of if you aren't getting proper sleep, or not achieving REM as one should you upset your metabolisim and somehow your carb processing can get out of whack.
That said, 1) i'm not totally sure what the specs are on that and 2) if you have only been taking the medication for a month I doubt it would constitute that much weight gain in that short of time?
Please be careful on those pills! In some cases you will sleep but not sleep as you should.
