i understand! in the 3 months after i was put on Zoloft, i gained 30kg! i get intense carb/sugar cravings and no matter how careful i try and be with food, the weight doesnt budge. im on 150mgs of Zoloft and i got the whole ankle swelling, dry skin etc- i also have polycystic ovaries and that contributes to my weight gain, but yeah- you are not alone! and the zoloft manages my symptoms very well, so i want to stay on it, but the weight gain has made me loathe myself.
