Antidepressents and weight gain/wish-granting genie

Have antidepressents made any of you gain weight?

I can't tell for sure because I don't own a scale (I guess that's my fault), but I did weigh myself at the gym awhile ago and I am pretty sure I weigh about 15 pounds more than usual and feel a bit heavier (it is hard to fit into my really tight jeans but I still can!) The pills have helped tremendously with my anxiety (I've been on them since May), but I am afraid weight will keep packing on. I was working out about 5x a week for the past 3 months and it hasn't seemed to do anything. I am 98% vegetarian and hardly ever eat sweets, although I don't bike or walk nearly as much as I used to, since I swithced from college student to 9-5 job with a car. I am not overweight or anything, but I was just wondering if antidepressents (I'm on Cymbalta) has done this to anyone?

I googled it, but I like to think the people on TQC are reliable, sane sources, so I'd rather trust you all :)

DK/DC--A genie has appeared and has granted you one wish but there is a catch: you can't use it directly to yourself. The wish has to get rid of one thing you consider "evil" in this world. So it may benefit you and your children and your community, but it's not like the genie can grant you a lot of money or something. What is that one "evil" you would tell the genie to do away with?
