Dear Robz,
Cilift is one of the newer antidepressants - it could make you gain or lose weight depending on your metabolism. It works on neurotransmitters in the brain to make you feel better. It does cause insomnia in some patients and could suppress your sex drive a bit. It is a good anti-depressant as it works well and have few unpleasant side effects.
