Could it be your just settling down a bit now and taking care of yourself indtead of having stress levels out of control? Stress and aniexty can play havoc on weight gain / loss.

i would suggest fluid retention as well. are you keeping your fluids up while on the medications? plenty fibre?
It may be just a short term reaction to a new med? i dont know how long you have been on the types of meds though. Sorry. How long have you noticed the weight gains? It could also be metabolic related as a pp mentioned.
Are you feeling more relaxed and less on edge? less fidgeting/worrying/anxiety levels not as high?
I would be speaking up about your weight concerns to your phych.
Good luck hun.

I know it's horrible
I have food issues.
When I was first diagnosed with depression I was a sever comfort eater.
I was 120kgs.
After nearly 10 years of treatment for my depression and anxiety I came off meds completely and that's when I changed my diet and lost weight.
I went down to 60kgs.
I was fine and dealing well, something happened in my life and the depression came back.
I didn't do anything about it until I went up to 70kgs and just about had a breakdown, well let me rephrase that. I did have a breakdown.
I felt disgusting (even though I was still lighter than what I use to be)
I went on an extreme diet, but would fail, so wouldn't get anywhere, I was a mess.
I'm back on antidepressants (Pristiq) and have lost 4kgs.
But i still have days where I get down about a few hundred grams.
I don't have scales but the kids have the Wii fit... I just can't control myself sometimes.
When I put on the 10 kilos I didn't go back to how I use to eat, just ate more healthier food but didn't exercise at all and I was just in a rut at home.
So that really freaked me out that I hasn't even had sh*t food and I still put weight on.
I have been on different antidepressants in the past that have worked great (lovan, Zoloft, cymbalta, Prozac) they were really good for my mental health, but found they would cause weight gain which would just end up putting anxiety on me, I would freak out and get so worked up over it... So I would change.
Then I would have withdrawals, get depressed over that and it was all a big mess!
I think if the tablets were to be causing your weight gain and it effected you more than what you felt good on them I would look at changing.
Only if it's going to be causing more negative in your life than positive iykwim.

That is the first place fluid will gather (feet and ankles)
I have been on valpam in the past, this would be nearly 5 years ago now.
But I do remember having bloating to the point I was tested for lactose intolerances and gluten (I didn't have either)
That was at a point when I was on about 4-5 different meds, someone told me to try high doses of pro-biotic to put my gut back into balance as the meds might have been hurting the good stomach bacteria.
It did work pretty well actually. I remember a huge difference and my abdominal discomfort subsided a bit too.
Might be something to ask the chemist about when you go down.
