How often could Prozac (fluoxetine) cause weight gain?

Infrequently: I can't give you exact statistics but more people don't gain weight than do. But if you are one who craves sweets, ice cream and chocolates on prozac, (fluoxetine) talk to your doc about an alternative drug. Gaining weight rarely helps depression, does it?
