  • No. I actually lost a little on Zoloft. But, people react differently and antidepressants, with maybe the exception of wellbutrin, are notorious for weight gain. I gained 20lbs on effexor in 3 months.

  • "up to 25% of people, most antidepressant medications -- including the popular SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) drugs like Prozac, Lexapro, Paxil, and Zoloft -- can cause a weight gain of 10 pounds or more."

  • Weight gain has been one of the most common Zoloft side effects that were reported. Insomnia nad sexual dysfunctions are also common. The side effects might last for two weeks or more.
