Suffering with depression as well as another mental disorder

Hi. I have been suffering with depression as well as another mental disorder. My therapist and I have discussed me trying medication to deal with my problems. Prozac was suggested to me. What can you tell me about this?? Also, i am very weight-conscious. I am not overweight whatsoever, however, i refuse to take any meds that would make me gain weight. Does Prozac make you gain weight or lose weight? What other side effects are linked to this drug? Are there any other drug suggestions??

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi there,
If you want to see it other side effects,
The one thing to remember is you will not get all the side effects listed and you may not get any at all. It is unpredictable. For legal reasons, all the side effects have to be listed.
Please have a discussion with a psychiatrist if you have any further queries.

Good Luck.
