Your Dr's job: Ideally, your doctor knows your overall health and is responsible for this search. Work together to find your best fit and ask for a CBT therapy referral to minimize drug needs. They all can have weight side effects, so you want the least of them possible. Also ask about diet/exercise plans - they'll help w/ all of your concerns. Best wishes!
