Discussions that mention zoloft

Depression board


I usually post on the addiction board but now I'm here :wave: . In an attempt to help my alcohol and drug addictions and social anxiety my doctor has prescribed Zoloft. I was very excited about this at first but now I'm very bummed about how it affects weight gain. I don't want to gain a ton of weight but I desperately need relief of my addictions. Damn it.

Well whats more important some weight gain or your addictions? By the way Zoloft actually made me loose weight. . Not all people gain weight. Everyone is different...if you start gaining alot of weight maybe your Dr. can prescribe another SSRI for you. Quitting drugs and alcohol is going to change your weight one way or the other. You may just get to a weight that you would have been if you were drug free.
