Welcome to the HealingWell Depression forum. I am so glad that you have joined us. I am sorry about
the weight gain. Makes you wish the doctor would have just left it alone.
I know that it takes time to get the weight off that we acquire from anti depressants. Besides you don't want to lose it too fast, it comes back faster if you do. I didn't have trouble with weight gain from Zoloft, in fact it was the opposite. But a lot of people gain weight from this drug.
I remcommend proper diet with plenty of exercise. Walking helps a lot. I am sure soon you will start to see your weight go down, but keep in mind that muscle weighs four times that of body fat, so go by how your clothes fit you instead of weight on the scale if you are working out.
Good luck to you.
