I was trying to add to this discussion. its my first time on here so i hope i am doing this right. How long does it take for your metabolism to return to normal after going off zoloft? I have been off of it for two months now and it is still extremely slow. I follow a restricted diet, I cannot excercise at the moment because i hurt my knee trying to excercise on my mini-tramp. I have an 11 month old so i can't always get to the pool. anyway, in the past when i wanted to lose weight I would go on a diet and lose it. Now its like pulling teeth to get it off. My scale weight has not budged in a year, but I do seem to be fitting into things and I can see it coming off, yet very very slowly. I went on Zoloft last February after my baby was born. I went off it at the end of November. Is my metabolism messed up for life? And I am planning a wedding in June and I hate the way I look! I have about 20 to lose.
