Weight loss on 100mg Sertraline

Posted , 5 users are following.

I've now been taking Sertraline 1 x 100mg daily since 20th August. In 2015 when I first went on 1 x 50mg daily I originally lost 1 stone in weight but within 3 weeks I put it all back on. I weaned off 50mg Sertraline in November 2017, but unfortunately my anxiety and depression returned in July this year. 50mg was not enough this time, hence I'm now on 100mg. However, this time the weight has stayed off.......which I'm hoping is permanent lol! Has anyone else experienced this?

    Hi Pam, yes I lost weight and so far it has stayed off. my opinion is that now I move more than I had before, hence burning more calories.

    oh i am on 25mg now, did 2 weeks at 25mg then 4 weeks at 50mg but couldnt take the side effects anymore and went back to 25mg.
