This medication gave me my life back. No more panic and anxiety attacks while driving. No sudden out burst of anger. No OCD, But... I put on about 60lbs. I read somewhere that this an Zoloft do block the messages sent from your stomach and brain that you are full. I have read here mostly people losing weight but not gaining weight. Currently on 75mg daily, forced on Lipitor, and Sex just forget that. I am slowly coming of this drug only because of weight gain. I want to know if weight gain is a side affect or I am just one happy SOB that just loves to eat.
I just spoke to my doctor about this today. I have put on 20 lbs and I've been on 150mg for about 1 1/2 years. I am craving sweets and carbs and never feel satisfied or full. It's getting worse. My doctor said he wants to try me on Prozac since they're in the same family. He said Prozac is the only one that he knows of that doesn't cause weight gain in this class of drug. It scares me since I'm on an even keel and mentally feeling good, but, my fat clothes are getting tight! I'll gradually start switching over. Good luck to you.
Hi, i have been on sertraline for almost a year. I have actually lost weight on this. All people react differently to medication. I really don't know about lipitor. Maybe this is making you gain weight. If the sertraline is making you feel good, i would not stop it. Brett Court
I've been on 25 mg of Zoloft for 6 months. (OCD). I put on a good 10 lbs. I'm also on 10 mg of Buspar. I go to the gym as often as possible and have stopped eating most sweets and avoid fried food as well. I'm 54, but pretty active. It's a total lifestyle change, but with discipline and persistents it can be done. There are other meds out there that do not cause weight gain. Wellbutrin is one. Buspar doesn't for me. Ask your Dr about others. Good luck!
