I started taking Zoloft last week for social anxiety, since then it seems like I can’t stop eating. Has anyone had this problem, and if so,did your appetite go back to normal ?
Oh, dear, Cheryl! It can go either way:
Decreased weight gain has been observed in association with use in children and adolescents.[Ref]
Very common (10% or more): Anorexia (up to 17%)
Common (1% to 10%): Decreased appetite, increased appetite, weight loss "
Sometimes a common side effect will resolve over a week for so, but if it continues and you're gaining weight you'll need to consult with your doctor for advice. (Oh, yea!!! )
