I am about to start on Zoloft a new anti depressant that my doctor prescribed me but I am a lil worried to take it if it causes weight gain. Has anyone experienced weight gain after taking Zoloft?
helenhines3; Very few have complained about weight gain with Zoloft most it is just the other way around weight loss, And just to make sure you can just watch what you are eating but it should not make a difference any weight gain is very rare. best of luck hope you get to feeling better I was on 200mg daily at one point and never gained a ounce.
It's not a common side effect. I was on zoloft for about 8 years and never gained a pound. If anything it suppressed my appetite. I used to drink those carnation breakfasts for extra nutrition because I wouldn't get hungry. We're all different. If you see yourself gaining weight try to mind what you eat and at what time. No late night snacking. Pepper
