Avatar f tn I've only read that weight loss is a result of decreased appetite so I'm questioning if my cotinuous weightloss is related to my new diet. My initial decrease in appetite could have reduced the size of my stomach, therefore keeping me from eating excessively. Going from excessive eating of bad foods to portioned nutritious natural foods could make a big difference. The weightloss has slowed down a lot over the last month. It was pretty drastic when I first started.
Avatar f tn Zoloft only affected my appetite for a month or so, but its been completely normal for a month or two. I'm thinking the initial loss of appetite contributed by possibly decreasing the capacity of my stomach, therefore making it difficult to eat excessively (which I used to do).
Avatar f tn Possible Adverse Effects of Sertraline or Zoloft Common Nausea Diarrhea Loss of appetite/ indigestion Insomnia/sleepiness/anxiety Rare Dizziness/tremor/confusion Palpitations/fainting Sexual dysfuction Rash' itching/skin eruptions * Do no stop the drug without consulting your doctor, who may supervise a gradual reduction in dosage. You say after taking this medication for anxiety, memory is still a huge problem. May I remind you that one of the common side effects of Zoloft is confusion.
Avatar f tn I'm not exactly sure this is the right place to ask this, but I don't know what is going on. For the past two months I have had a loss of appetite. I eat less than 1000 calories per day. Every once in a while I will get my appetite back and eat normally, but it's rare. This all started when I got two viruses (don't know what) two months ago. After three weeks of being sick I felt better, and had no problems eating. The two weeks later I got **** again but blood test were normal.
Avatar m tn I'm on 8th day now and have had the usual side effects - extra anxiety(!!), shakes, loss of appetite, tiredness etc. Am now feeling slight improvements I think which is encouraging. My pattern is bad, very anxious and depressed mornings and good evenings. Evenings are often perfectly normal, when I wonder what all the fuss is about!! I'm wondering whether anyone has had improvements to their mornings in particular.Wishing everyone on here good luck.

Avatar m tn I lost a lot of weight when I came off it but I had completely lost my appetite. I became very, very, depressed within a year. Now I am gaining weight, but I feel so well.

1872071 tn?1320291132 You've also not been on the medication long enough for it to help you, this can take up to 4 weeks. Loss of appetite is a side effect of Zoloft which may go away with some time. But any time you change medication or your dosage and are concerned about something....give your prescribing doctor a quick call. This is when they expect and need to hear from us on how we're doing. Your doctor is always your best resource.

Malabsorption syndromes are seen in intestinal tuberculosis, HIV, tropical sprue, parasites in stool and Whipple’s Disease. Diabetes too can be the cause.
Avatar f tn I have been on 100mg of Topamax since the end of April. I immediately experienced the loss of appetite. I seaked the advice of a naturopath to use it to my advantage because I had about 80 pounds to lose. I see him every Friday and since then, I have lost 43 pounds...:-) It has not been difficult. It seems like he weight is coming off on its own now. I don't crave anything. I'm hoping to reach my goal by January.

Avatar n tn I started taking the Sertraline (Zoloft) and it was making me feel sickly, I have already lost a lot of weight through loss of appetite so I didn't need that. How long does it take for that sickly feeling to stop? I have been prescribed the following in the past which didn't work: Fluoxetine (Prozac), Citalopram (Celexa). Should i stick with the Zoloft or should i try the Mirtazapine?

Avatar m tn Abstract Objective The singular phenomenon of switching from depression to its opposite state of mania or hypomania, and vice versa, distinguishes bipolar disorder (BPD) from all other psychiatric disorders. Despite the fact that it is a core aspect of the clinical presentation of BPD, the neurobiology of the switch process is still poorly understood.

I go number two about twice i day now and the last few days ive had a loss of appetite. The only meds im taking right now are sertraline (for my Generalized Anxiety Disorder).

Avatar f tn You could start feeling much better right away. Loss of thought clarity and excessive tiredness suggest hepatic encephalopathy (HE) ( or side effects of the medications you are taking. I wish I could be more helpful but these are things lab testing and your doctor(s) need to figure out. An elevated ammonia level would be a strong indication that HE is responsible for how your feeling.
1305597 tn?1275340046 Another medication that is sometimes added to SSRI in the treatment of depression is bupropion (welbutrin) and it has even been shown to cause a small weight loss over the first few months (it suppresses the appetite). However, if the eating disorder you are is either anorexia or bulimia this is not an option because during clinical trails bupropion caused a slightly increased rate of new seizures in those two eating disorders.
1910757 tn?1348686919 After 10 days on Fluoxetine, when the initial dose was increased, I experienced some really bad side effects, like extreme agitation and complete lack of appetite. Because of depression I was already underweight, so my psychiatrist decided to switch me to Sertraline instead, to keep me from losing more weight. The first week I still had some nasty adverse effects like insomnia, sweaty hands and feet, lack of appetite and insomnia.

Avatar f tn I started taking 24mg of ephedrine a day and I felt more energetic, a high mood, decreased appetite and a bit more weight loss. However, I ended up taking it pretty much for 5 months upping the dose to around 60mg, due to being scared to stop due to the energy it gave me to complete assignments. The appetite suppressant properties had ended after the first month as had the highs. I was obsessed with nutrition, my body image, easily agitated, sometimes depressed and wanting to be even thinner.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am on Effexor as well and have gained about 12 pounds since starting as well. My doctor doesn't think it is in direct connection with the effexor but I am struggling with whether or not I should get off it because I can't explain the weight gain. The explanation given makes sense to me, so I guess I need to focus more on my eatting habits.
Avatar m tn Loss of interest Unable to stay focused Fear that you're dying Loss of appetite Unable to sleep The derealization continues to haunt you Constant brain fog Is your doctor aware of all these symptoms? Unless he's a total moron, after a thorough physical exam in which everything orgaincally wrong had been ruled out, what is left lying on the table is, in my humble opinion, a hybrid of depression and anxiety.
