I was wondering if Zoloft caused bad sexual side effects or weight gain?
Hey Andy - I have been on Zoloft for about 3 weeks now. Initially I noticed significant decreased sex drive. It seems to have passed for the most part but I'm not where I used to be. I can't speak to the weight gain. I was putting in hard exercise in summer/fall but just stopped doing it. Given this I can't tell if my weight gain is from Zoloft or lack of exercise.
I never get many side effects from medicines, but Zoloft gave me bad dry mouth. I did not know it was from the Zoloft and I ended up getting 3 cavities! I told my doctor and stopped it. Nothing else happened that I noticed, but I found out I have a thyroid disorder so that could be the reasons for sexual drive going down and anxiety..they were pre-existing. :/
