Getting back appetit: Some medications used to treat depression also boost appetite especially those so called "atypical anti-psychotics" (seroquel, zyprexa, (olanzapine) risperdal). If your appetite is poor, certain high calorie supplements such as boost or ensure can be used to help your caloric needs. Megace is a hormone based medication used in patients with cancer and lack of appetite can be helpful.

Difficult task: Here's a trick that might help you. Eat a bowl of oatmeal with milk every night before bed. Add brown sugar, raisins, etc. Do this each and every night. The beauty of this trick lies in its consistency. It's not a huge amount of food, but over time, the added calories will help bring your weight up. Good luck with this. Lgromkomd.

Start an exercise pr: Your symptoms are probably due to depression as you mentioned. You should consult a physician get a physical examination and routine lab work to rule out other causes of weight loss. Start an exercise program which should include cardio and weight training which will help you to gain weight and muscle mass.
