I'm totally with you. I'm soooooo glad I found this forum. I started Zoloft 2 1/2 years ago at 50 mg. Then went to 100mg. and started to gain from there. I have gained 18 pounds in the last year, all in my hips and belly. Thought it was my IUD, got that out, it wasn't that. I work out every day for about
an hour, have a membership at a gym. Haven't lost an ounce, in fact it seems the more I work out, the more I gain. It's VERY FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm almost more depressed now about
my weight than I was in general before the meds. I'm on it for the same reasons you are, with the anxiety too. But I'm not sure it's worth me hating myself cause I'm heavier. SO FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IV'E BEEN READING ALL about HOW WE HAVE ALL GAINED WEIGHT ON ZOLOFT. WE CAN'T ALL BE WRONG ACCORDING TO OUR DRS. I WAS ON 25 MG HAVE GAINED 23 PDS I ALSO QUIT SMOKING A YEAR AGO SO I KNOW SOME OF IT IS FROM THAT. I NOW HAVE CUT IT IN HALF, TO SEE IF I CAN LOSE SOME WEIGHT. I'M NORMALLY AT 133 NOW I'M AT 153. I EXERCISE RIDE MY BIKE AND WALK AS MUCH AS I CAN. I AM VERY ACTIVE. I HOPE IT WILL START TO COME OFF. I HAVE TO HAVE ZOLOFT BECAUSE OF ANXIETY AND PANIC ATTACKS. IT HAS BEEN GOOD FOR THAT. I JUST CAN'T STAND THIS WEIGHT GAIN. PLEASE KEEP ME INFORMED IF ANYONE LOSES WHILE STILL TAKING THIS MEDICINE. THANKS KJM
