I take 150mg Zoloft and doctor wants to start me on Contrave. I see all comments and reviews on anxiety and other emotional issues as a side effect. Just wondered if me being on the Zoloft will possibly keep from the anxiousness?
RondasWagner4; Most the people that have the anxiety problems it is only for the first 7 to 14 days which is normal but being on Zoloft that may very well help you not have it as bad if you do get it or the doctor may even want to adjust your Zoloft. You must remember many of the people that do respond on how this medication worked for them seem like they really were not happy and those seem to get posted far more the positive post by the people that this has worked for. Every one of us is different and medications work differently. Any questions check with your pharmacist or the doctor. Good luck to you and stay positive you can do this. Just remember many lose 5 to 10 lbs in a short period don't let it upset you because most of that is water first so it drops off fast, Then it is slow and steady which really is the right way to lose weight. But from people I have chatted with, they don't understand why so little loss after the first week or two you well be fine. have a great day. Chuck1957
