I haven't found any studies linking SSRIs to weight gain, much less studies on exercise for weight gain and SSRIs. The lack of research on this really cheeses me off; there's tons of anecdotal evidence, and p-docs (mine, for example) seem to be starting to take it seriously as a side effect that affects many. But, nada in the scientific lit. My own anecdotal evidence: I gained 35 lb on Zoloft (this after not gaining a pound on Pamelor plus lithium!). I've worked out 4 to 6 times a week for 5 years, watch what I eat, and have lost 15 pounds over the years. I find this puzzling and disturbing, but I prefer being sane and a little chunky to the alternative...
