I was on zoloft and gained about
10 lbs in a 3 month period, and it wasn't stopping. I started around 122 lbs and now weigh 134 because of zoloft.
I've now switched to prozac, and have been totally off of zoloft for almost 4 weeks now. My appetite has gone back to normal since stopping (I was always hungry on the zoloft) and I no longer feel bloated/swollen/puffy all the time. So I do look better. But the weight hasn't budged any, and it may have gone up slightly. I'm too scared to look right now. I will know for sure on Wed when I go in for a med check.
I have been exercising and eating less but nothing is really budging. I'm getting pretty frustrated. Does anyone know how long it takes for zoloft to get out of your system, and when weight will start coming off? I've never had trouble w/ my weight except when meds are involved. When I was 15 I gained 40 lbs in a few months on Effexor. It started dropping once I got off the meds (I think I switched to prozac if I remember right), but so far nothing is budging this time around.
