Well, it's hard to know what will work for you, and what drugs are good or bad are going to vary from person to person. However, most of the time the first antidepressant doctors try is Zoloft or Lexapro because they usually don't have very bad side effects and they have a good success rate. You mentioned weight gain as a concern - I believe the tricyclic antidepressants and also Paxil and Remeron are generally the most likely to cause that problem. I hope you find a treatment that works well for you.
