HI,
I started taking Zoloft 8 months for depression. At first I lost my appetite and lost very needed weight. 2 weeks ago, I noticed my appetite is back and every little thing I eat, I gain weight. I am really watching what I eat now and I keep gaining gain. Any thoughts?
Warmly confused

Hello and welcome.  This is very common for the AD meds.  Some people lose weight, most gain and the lucky few remain weight neutral. If you find the weight gain is extreme you may want to speak with your physician.
 
You may want to use our search feature above and type in Zoloft and weight gain.
 
Take care,
Kitt

Hi Kitt,
Thank you for your response. My concern is not about weight gain or loss but instead FIRST weight loss with zoloft and NOW weight gain. How is that possible? Can my metabolism go back and forth with a med?

Hi jazs,

That's not uncommon either as your body adjusts to the medication. Many side effects come on and then disappear. If you're concerned, I would give your doc a call.
