Hello, my depressions with Sertraline (only 25 mg) got so much better....  but in the last 2 weeks i gained 5 pounds... without eating like crazy... i dietet very strict for a few days and still gained 1.5 pounds... all together i gained now 6 +... i have a really hard time my whole life to keep my weight in a normal range... i am not pathetic about my weight but i was already 230 lbs years ago.. now normally around 169 by 5.11 height.  Additionally i take in the evening 50 mg novo-trazodone and 7.5 mg ranzopiclone... PLEASE HELP!!!!!! any advise to change to another med... is it the sleeping pills.. any advise for a antidepressant which helps to sleep??? Cannot go onPrisitq (got really worse of that) or Celexa......

Hi Pawfect,

I understand that welbutrin is weight neutral. Often people lose weight from that. Talk to your doctor about that, and maybe he will switch you. I have weight issues myself, going off of effexor and onto pristiq to see if that helps. I was on a super high dose of effexor (375mg) which is suppose to be weight neutral too. Maybe it is my age. lol...

I hope that you find something that works for you. Talk to the doctor and see what they can do about it.

Best wishes for finding what is right for you.

Hugs, Karen

not sure. found i got the munchies on effexor, i hope that it works for you. it is a good anti-dep perse, albeit it pooped on me. has a good mild sedative value. just changed yesterday from pristiq to cymbalta. i am somewhat in the same boat pawfect!! keep tryin', wiith compassion. jamie

Im on 150mgs of Zoloft. I constantly have the munchies and have gained 20kgs- like 40 pounds. Its a tough call cos I hate my fat body, but the Zoloft really helps control my Panic. You are not alone in this.
