Washington: A new animal study has found that short-term use of antidepressants, combined with stress and a high-fat diet, is associated with long-term increases in body weight."Our study suggests that short-term exposure to stress and antidepressants, rather than a high-calorie, high-fat diet alone, leads to long-term body weight gain, accompanied with increased bone and spleen weights," said study lead author Suhyun Lee, a PhD candidate in the medical sciences at the John Curtin School of Medical Research at the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia.Antidepressants are among the most prevalent medications today, accounting for millions of prescriptions each year.
