Hi Savora
Yes.Moban is an antipsychotic used to treat patients with schizophrenia.This medication has a risk for a side effect called tardive dysknesia.I would suggest talking to your MD again before taking this.Its not usually prescribed for depression.There are some antidepressants that have a low risk for weight gain.Good luck.

Antipsychotics are in a different class of medications than antidepressants.Did he give you a reason why??
