  1. Situtramine itself can lead to some improvement in mood.
    Reductil capsules contain the active ingredient sibutramine hydrochloride monohydrate, which is a type of anti-obesity medicine. It works by affecting neurotransmitters in the brain.
    Neurotransmitters are natural body chemicals that are stored in nerve cells and are involved in transmitting messages between the nerve cells. They are released from nerve cells as a message is transmitted. Once the message has been transmitted, the nerve cells then reabsorb the neurotransmitter.
    Sibutramine prevents two of these neurotransmitters, noradrenaline and serotonin, from being reabsorbed back into the nerve cells. Noradrenaline and serotonin are responsible for moderating mood and various other processes in the brain.
    It is thought that sibutramine helps people to lose weight by increasing the amount of noradrenaline and serotonin free to act in the brain. This enhances the feeling of fulfillment from eating, and so makes you feel satisfied after eating less food.
    SSRIs , the commonest anti depressants used might interefere with the function. So consult the doctor. You could start SSRI after this treatment. The weight loss itself might improve your mood along with the effect on the serotonin nor adrenaline system. After this , you could go on fluoxetine/prozac which actually causes a loss in weight.
    Good luck
