Discussions that mention zoloft

Depression board


I know that everyone reacts to medication differently. But does anyone know of an anti depressant that is supposed to not cause weight gain?

I was on zoloft and then switched to paxil because it was cheaper. I gained about 20 pounds (and was working out 3 times a week) and the paxil made me incredibly tired all the time. I have been off of them for about a year and lost 10 pounds.

Unfortunately I feel like I need to get back on them. But if I gain weight then I'll just have another reason to get depressed. I'm not working out now so who knows how many pounds I'd put on.
