Losing weight while zoloft

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight while zoloft


Avatar f tn I recently started taking Zoloft too and I feel like I'm going to be going through the same problem that you're experiencing. I seem to have no appetite at all and I haven't even started taking 50mg yet!!! I weight train 3 days a week and try to do 2 days of cardio. When I started really having severe problems with depression and anxiety I I began to lose weight to though. I went from 170lbs to where I'm at now at about 150-155lbs.
Avatar f tn I am back in zoloft and while I feel tired, I am losing weight again and feel so much better.
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!
1348686 tn?1310654243 I have tried hard but I think the Zoloft I am on now is causing me to not gain weight. Also, I still have anxiety while I am sleeping cause I will wake up in panic or having anxiety night sweats. Just can't turn my brain off. I know how you are feeling.
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 f tn Did you ever switch medications? If so, did you end up losing or gaining weight with the Effexor? I am having the same dilemma in regard to switching my meds.
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 im taking abilify 2mg, adderal 30mg, and zoloft 100mg will i be able to lose weight
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.
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 I was wondering if any of you have successfully lost weight or stayed the same while pregnant. They only thing I plan on doing as far as losing weight is to eat healthy foods and not to overeat like I tend to do and to also excercise. I know if Im prego I shouldnt overdo myself on exercise but light exercise and walking wont hurt! :) I just would like to minimize the chance of getting gestational diabetes or preclampsia while prego! :) Thoughts, opinions, concerns, etc are all welcome!!!
Avatar f tn u really shouldn't try to lose weight while pregnant. but if u get bad morning sickness u may not have a choice. try to keep ur weight the same or if it bugs u talk to ur doc. good luck dear!
Avatar m tn I too have severe anxiety, although in my case it came on strong post partum. I am trying to conceive again and know that I probably require medication on an ongoing basis, so have asked an awful lot of questions about this issue. It is always risk vs. benefit. I think in a perfect world we wouldn't have to take anything during pregnancy. The reality is that many people suffer from issues like yours and mine, and other things that can even require narcotics, etc.
1090984 tn?1463769850 The most important thing right now is to get you out of that depression so you can live your life, and then you can work on losing the weight. Phentermine will not help you lose weight, the old Phentermine did but is was a very nasty and dangerous drug. The FDA withdrew Phentermine and removed the dangerous ingredient which is what made you lose weight...and the new Phentermine does nothing.
Avatar f tn Idk your not supposed to lose weight in pregnancy. I mean sOme ppl get really sick and help it but you really shouldn't lose just to lose. You should talk to your doctor about it.
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!
