Viibryd cause weight gain??

I started taking the anti-depressant medication Viibryd in October 2012.  Since then (5 months) I have gained almost 30 pounds.  The medicine is the only thing in my life that has changed.  I am wondering if anyone else is using this med and noticed weight gain as a side effect??  It's discouraging because I've tried so many depression meds and this is the first one that I feel like actually works... but the weight gain makes me depressed all over again so it's a trade off... Overall I feel better... but the weight gain makes me feel crappy about myself.  Not sure what to do, stay on the medicine or try something else.  I'm going to see my doctor soon and see what he says I am just wondering if anyone else is having this same issue.  Thanks!!

You mentioned that you had tried 'so many' other antidepressants. I wonder if Mirtazapine is one of the ones you have tried, only it is noted for being an antidepressant with one of the least amount of side-effects.
