Weight gain?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, I’ve read on quite a few websites that sertraline causes weight gain & in some cases extreme weight gain. 

Has anyone experienced this since being on it?

    Hi Bee, I would have to say no. I am more energetic now and that could be the reason. I've been on 50 for 16 weeks. Hope this helped. 😎

    I have put on a lot of weight but to me it’s a small price to pay. I’d rather be heavy than feel the way I did before sertraline.

    I gained weight, too.  I was hoping when I was moved to duloxetine from sertraline that the weight would come off but it has not.  It sits right in my belly/thigh area.  I had just lost a bunch of weight before the meds so I am bummed.
