Patient

Q: Hi, I m 35 years old , 5.4 inch height,I m underweight weighing around 53 kgs. 2 years before I was taking oleanz tablets as prescribed by doctor for mild depression, during that time my weight was increased to 66 kg even though I was eating the same kind and amount of food which I m eating now. But now since I have the tablets my weight has came down to 53 kg.even if I eat more food weight is not increasing.can u please let me know how do I increase the weight. Are there any tablets which I can take safely which does the same task of weight gain a s done by oleanz (of course weight gain is as side effect of oleanz but it was blessing in disguise for me)but I cannot take oleanz now since its a psychotic drug and that I m not under depression now
