Hi ive been on sertraline for a year now and recently my weight has really started to increase. Has anybody else had weight gain with sertraline? sad

I've been on it for 22 years. I've lost weight or stayed the same on it. I don't think this anti d is one that causes weight gain.

Thanks for your reply megbeth. I have only gained weight recently and have been trying to figure out why. smile

I've lost weight switching from citalopram to sertraline, I'm not getting the raging munches any more, plus I'm not so sedated so I'm finding it easier to motivate myself to exercise.
