hi, sorry it took so long to respond. well i have been taking ativan for over a year, ,for sleep problems, then i started zoloft about
4 months ago, very low dose 25mg, i noticed an immediate lowereing of pain in my back which told me it was somewhat anxiety related. i tried to increas my zoloft to 50 mg, and wham i gained 6 to 7 pounds in 11 days, dropped back to 25 mg. just this last week i stopped the zoloft, hope that is not a mistake, i just wanted to see how i would do without it, so far my sleep is disturbed and i am exhausted, but those are withdral symptoms. i might get back on the zoloft, not sure, but will not incresae as i do not want the extra pounds, i got enough to deal with already. i do not put on weight with the lower dose of zozloft.
