Depression board


I quite taking Zoloft about a month ago because It made me gain 12 pounds in about 2 months. Now I really feel like I need to be on something. My Hubby says who cares about the weight gain if I feel better, but I get even more depressed when I gain weight. Any recomendation??

I don't know if there any meds out there that don't cause weight gain, but I too was on Effexor for awhile and am trying to get off it. I gained about 65 lbs in about 4 or 5 mths., and my husband said the same thing- If you are happy, then its ok. But it's not! I am depressed just thinking about it. I hope now that when I get this stuff out of my system that I will be able to lose some weight. I have 4 kids and being depressed and being overweight and being depressed about that is not something anyone needs.
God Bless You and Good Luck in your life.

Have been on Paxil, Zoloft, Lexapro, Wellbutrin and now Cymbalta. By far Lexapro was the worst for weight gain and Cymbalta has made me lose like 6lbs in a month so far. It suppresses my appetite and gives me energy and I only take a small dosage.
