Default I was already on Depression Meds

I am on Ibroprion. I was almost at the maximum when the lockdown occurred. Given how much weight I've put on I don't want to ask to increase the dosage even though maybe I should

Rather than directly asking for an increase it might just be best to ask the doctor what advice they might have and tell them you have concerns about increasing it more. In my case I am at the higher end of my depression medication - We talked about what time of day my symptoms were the worse--- I have a REALLY hard time later in the day and I wasn't sleeping. Rather than increasing my depression medication he gave me a moderate dose of something that would help me sleep at night.

I don't know anything about Ibroprion, but talking about your weight gain with your doctor is also really important to check if its a side effect of of your depression medication, for your health they might suggest trying something different. They also might want to do blood tests to make sure nothing else is going on.

I really do wish you the best with your medication, depression, and weight. My philosophy is always to communicate with my doctor.
