Prozac and Weight

Hey guys! I have  question about Prozac and and weight gain. Prozac has helped me so much with anxiety and depression but I have put on like 15 lbs. The really weird thing is my eating habits really never changed and I work out all the time. Any suggestions for keeping weight off while on meds? Also, has anybody had issues with acne on meds? My skin has not looked like this since Backstreet was back...
Thanks Guys!!!!!!

I've found that some of these meds can cause weight gain. 15 lbs really is'nt that much at all. I know it can be to you though. I gained 70 lbs in a year while on a med. I did get off it and lost a lot of the weight.
All I can recommend is to change up your exercise routine and eating habits a little to see if that helps.
Your body can get used to doing the same thing all the time and switching things up can really help  with weight loss.
