I am trying to figure out what is going on with me.
In May of 2012, I started taking Zoloft. Since that time, I have gone from 125 to 150 pounds. (I am 5'4).
A large gain.  My doctors say that there is no way possible that weight was from the drug. I have not eaten more and in fact I have worked out more and been more healthy.
I checked my Thyroid and Cortisol levels and they were both normal so it leads me to wonder if I may be allergic to something. My stomach is really puffed out. No amount of cardio has done anything and normally I am someone who gets into shape with minimal working out.

Does any of thing make sense or do you have any suggestions?
My weight keeps on rising no matter what I do and I'm quite concerned.
Thank you,
