’m on 150mg of zoloft, i’ve been on it for almost a year now and have gained 30+ lbs… it’s miserable to see that! the weight loss stopped at about 100 mg but i never gained any back. could never lose weight no matter what i did but since nov i have been at my lowest weight since 1995. the worst part is that i get extremely hungry in late evening, which is a recipe for weigh gaining. my doctor told me i would not gain wait or have any side affects except for a headache until my body got used to the drug. post-college i got down to 160ish lbs because i wasn’t making any money (so couldn’t afford to eat unhealthy) but had a free ymca pass, so i lost 20 pounds in 6 months with weight lifting, which i loved! when i realized that the weight gain wasn’t going to stop i stopped taking the medication. but now since i know the weight gain is from this it is making me crazy because i really hate my body! am hoping and praying that i don’t ever have to take another antidepressant again, and once i wean myself off of the zoloft my next feat will be to try to wean myself off of xanax, which at this point i have to take massive amounts of to even be able to sleep. my daughter is severely underweight and has been on prozac for depression and anxiety for a year now. are an array of other individual factors that will influence the weight gain you experience while on zoloft. yet others will experience a major increase in their baseline bodyweight. i take zoloft for generalized anxiety, but the stress that i feel over my weight and not fitting into any of my clothes has really taken a toll on me. it got to the point where i started taking phentermine and adderall and different diet pills in hopes of losing weight because my appetite was so out of control. god knows how much weight i’ll have gained then! i have gained 21 pounds since i have been on zoloft. i have always been thin and active and was never able to put on weight. my weight was normal, but i still felt pretty depressed. i went off of wellbutrin and on lexapro and gained about 25 pounds in about 4 months. again i never put the correlation of my writer’s block starting around the time i started zoloft together until recently. carb cravings may be candida and i read recently that taking a rotation of high quality probiotics may help in keeping weight off with antipsychotics so maybe it’s the same with zoloft? people that have been taking zoloft over a long term often notice that the weight gain gets worse over time. wasn’t until very recently that i started realizing that the zoloft might actually the biggest factor in my weight gain, because not only does it leave me with an insatiable appetite if i’m not taking a diet pill, but it also has me lethargic and groggy and basically unmotivated about anything in life. my weight is depressing me, but i’m scared to go off of it or switch because i had such a bad reaction in the past. put me on wellbutrin too so i can lose weight/stop eating but does not help.

Amitriptyline 25 mg weight gain
i’ve been on 100mg a day over the course if almost threw years now and i have gained 30 lbs. i haven't had many negative side effects, but there is one i'm especially worried about:Weight gain. will admit before starting the medication i was probably under weight and barely eating. you may want to also evaluate whether you believe the weight gain is a result of the zoloft, whether the other medication is the primary culprit, or whether they are both equally responsible. body seemed to just keep gaining even though i hadn’t changed what i ate or the amount i was eating. have always gained weight whenever i’ve gone on zoloft, which first started at age 14 at 25mg. stopped about 9 months ago and the weight seems to be sticking, but i don’t know if that’s because i am impatient or what. i’m 5″7 normally about 132-134 pounds since stating the medicine i’ve maintained a weight of 146-148 pound i’m hoping that in another 3 months i’m not another 10-15 pounds bigger. i wanted to fine out how you got on with the weight loss? then it hit the fan again so tried zoloft works great but gained 25 lbs feel very demotivated but also know i’m still depressed. i decided to finally take a look at my medical records and see my weight taken at each appointment and i am devastated to learn i have gained 25 lbs in a year since starting zoloft.’ve also been on birth control for years (definitely gained 10 pounds with jolessa in the first year but that’s worth it for me ), as well as corticosteroids for 5+ years to control my allergies and asthma. in the event that an individual gains a significant amount of weight while taking the drug, the weight gain may make the person feel as if they are trapped in a lose-lose situation: take zoloft and feel less depressed but gain weight or don’t take zoloft and lose weight. some people don’t care how much weight they gain as long as the medication is keeping their depression at bay. i was 167 when i first saw my doc and gained 24 pounds in that first year i was on zoloft., it really annoys me that most doctors, at least in my experience, are hesitant to talk to patients about their weight. as for me my story is a little different but i have been on zoloft for 6 years and did gain alot of weight. to zoloft, i took effexor and gained 40 pounds over 5 years. first time on here, i am going to start taking sertaline again, haven't done so for around a year but feel i need to, i was on 100mg, a lesser dose did not help but bit worried about going straight on to 100mg, has anyone done the same? i am not sure what to do as it helps great with my anxiety but also at the same time, feel like i am obsessed over the weight gain…. obviously, i gained weight as i grew, but i became more and more overweight as my dose was increased. in the first year, i gained 15 pounds and decided to go off it when i saw that creep up to 20 lbs. was brutal to say the least and, as i’ve seen in past years, i typically loose a lot of weight during this time because i’m exercising so much. and friends couldn’t understand why i was gaining weight and neither could i and now i know why. have been taking zoloft for over a year and have gained 20+ pounds.
