Psychiatrist Dr. Keerthish Shetty's  Response
Your concern about her weight gain is understandable. It is indeed a side effect of some medication. However, sleep disturbance is usually a symptom of disease she is suffering from. Going by your description, it does not appear to be depression. Hence, it is advisable to take a second opinion from another psychiatrist. There are many treatment options, some of them without major side effects. Only Counselling and other therapies may be of little help in this patient
