Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight while zoloft


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.
527657 tn?1214051850 I would like to hear what people on zoloft or paxil have to say. Im not losing any weight as least not yet, i just started zoloft 3 weeks ago today. Have you gained,lost or stayed the same on zoloft?
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 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 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 n tn I recently went to a personal trainer who said that she has several clients who have had difficulty losing weight while taking Wellbutrin. I thought it was supposed to help with weight loss. Do you know if Wellbutrin or Zoloft can cause weight gain or difficulty losing weight?
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 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 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.
6510411 tn?1381953226 I have been taking zoloft for 8 months i thought it would help me lose wieght instead I have not lost any wieght , I even read on a web page that it would hard to even lose a pound even after I stop taking zoloft is this true, if not how long will it take for me to start losing 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 f tn ll ever be able to lose weight while on the Zoloft. Thanks for any info you can pass along!
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 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 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 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?
Avatar n tn i too have had an impossible time losing weight on or following the use of anti'd's--i just posted a ques. yesterday asking the same thing you are. i'm on lamictal (75mgs) and i'm working out obessively, eating right, under 1300 cals a day, journaling everything etc..and even though clothes are fitting a little better, the scale isnt changing, and its been 2 months now, and i need some kind of motivation to keep going. thats why i was thinking of trying the injections etc..
1771101 tn?1314103509 I have had one session with a mental health counselor she recommends I start meds while doing CBT but after feeling the effects of the Zoloft and Klonopin I am terrified. I know that I cannot continue to live like this it's miserable. I have my 10,8,3,and 4 year old who needs there mommy to function in some for of normalcy. I guess some reassurance that I am not losing it and any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
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 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.
