Avatar f tn I am 26/Female, 5'4", and weight about 145 pounds. I just started on Zoloft to help with some anxiety issues I have been having. My goal is to lose about 10 pounds just for my health. I am worried about gaining weight on Zoloft and can't seem to find an answer as to whether it is the medicine that makes you gain weight, or mentally feeling better that makes you eat more and you gain weight. Can you address this please? Thank you!
Avatar n tn Has anyone been successful losing weight while taking zoloft? I've been on paxil, and now zoloft for 12 years, I only seem to be able to gain weight.
Avatar f tn I am now 109, one year after starting treatment. I have not steadily been losing this 40ish lbs, but rather i will dip in weight for example, in the past week, i was 112lbs on monday and about 4 days later i was at 109. Obviously i have not lost weight at this rate the entire time, but i do lose it in large dips, and then plateau for a while. I know that the reason for this is because i have ZERO appetite and most foods that are heavier in nutritional and protein values are repulsive to me.
Avatar n tn I started a weight watchers diet on my own, and I am hoping that losing weight will help me feel better. The problem is the weight is not coming off. Is this a residual effect of the medication?
Avatar n tn I went from 127 to 123 after taking Zoloft. Some people gain weight, some lose weight, and others dont experience a change in weight at all. Are you getting plenty to drink? Losing 7 Ibs over about a week is more likely water loss than fat/muscle loss.
Avatar n tn It is a bit discouraging. Has anyone successfully lost weight after going off antidepressants? How long before I should expect to see results?
Avatar f tn i just cant stand anyone so I am losing some weight but I dont know if it is the zoloft or adipex.. anyone every experienced this?? I am not sure weather to go off the zoloft. my pms is so bad..
Avatar f tn I had horrible withdrawals and I did it according to what my doctor said. I am also finally losing weight instead of gaining. Thats enough to make anyone depressed gaining all that weight.
Avatar n tn im taking abilify 2mg, adderal 30mg, and zoloft 100mg will i be able to lose weight
Avatar f tn I believe there are some antidepressants that do cause weight gain; you might have to cut back on your calories or step up your exercise to compensate. I would also suggest that you get checked for other medical issues, including hypothyroidism (causes depression), insulin resistance, PCOS; all of these conditions can cause weight gain/inability to lose. I might suggest that you incorporate the food diary here on Med Help.
Avatar f tn I currently am on Zoloft for stress and anxienty. It has helped me to start a regular sleep pattern, and was working well for a while, but due to circumstances, I'm stressed more than usual and am feeling the effects quite a bit. I'm losing my hair, irritable, crying, I've also gained weight. Another side effect is the grogginess. I'm already on Topamax for migraines. Should I try Welbutrin instead? I heard it works and helps people lose weight and have energy.
Avatar f tn How long did it take you to lose the weight you gained? Was it a matter of time? I have never had a problem losing weight until now and I am terrified that it will never come off. What if the meds changed me for good?! Hope to hear from you soon!
Avatar f tn I was wondering, at what dosage did you notice a gain or loss of weight? I've read about people either gaining or losing weight, but no one says what dosage they're on. I'm taking 25mg right now and the doc and I were talking of moving me to 50mg. Standing at a whopping 5ft, I of course worry about the weight gain.

Avatar f tn I am back in zoloft and while I feel tired, I am losing weight again and feel so much better.

Cat I have epilepsy and take a lot of meds to control it including triliptal, Xanax, Zoloft, Zyrtec & Vimpat. I am 198lbs at 5'7" and having a really really hard time losing weight. Are their any suggestions?
527657 tn?1214051850 Does anyone know about how long it takes for antidepressants to get completely out of your system? I was on paxil for two years and gained too much weight so my doctor switched me to zoloft for 3 weeks. Im off both now offically today. Or at least I hope so. Im not planning on taking any more zoloft unless the withdrawel is too bad. I weaned off it. Also does anyone know how long it takes to start losing the weight from these drugs?
1140989 tn?1429773263 Taking laxatives won't make you lose real weight. What I mean by that is that you may feel like you are losing some weight but it's only water weight. You will not lose fat by taking laxatives. They are dangerous too. You can become dehydrated and worse, your bowels can become dependent on laxatives, meaning you won't be able to go to the bathroom without laxatives.
Avatar f tn Hi there. Iam 19 years old and have been trying to lose weight for about a month now and have lost around 11 pounds. This week i seem to have lost no weight at all and it is really frustrating. I have a few friends who have taken phentermine and they said it was excellent and they look great too. I want to try it, to help speed things along but the thing is i take zoloft for an anxiety disorder. Im not sure if this will react badly or if it will make my anxiety flare up?
