View Full Version : Zoloft and weight gain

04-09-2010, 04:08 AM
I am on Zoloft for anxiety that I get with the prednisone. I am on 100 MG, I was on this medication many years ago as well and remember gaining weight. I spoke with my doctor and I am going to try it at 50 mg.
I am sure most of the weight gain I am experiencing is from the prednisone but just wondering if anybody else has had weight gain due to taking Zoloft?

I don't know about Zoloft, but many antidepressants are known to cause significant weight gain. I suggest you find a psychiatrist to manage those meds. Regular docs are just not skilled enough with them to do a good job. I sure wish they'd acknowledge that.
