Comment:
I have taken Zoloft twice, about five years apart, and while it did pull me out of a huge slump, it caused at least a 20 lb weight gain both times. I am normally average weight, sometimes leaning toward underweight, and I eat pretty healthily, although I do pig out here and there. But I have never been overweight. At least until Zoloft.

I've had depression every morning upon waking up and lack of energy. I think Zoloft has helped me cope with this symptom, only it causes some anxiety as a side effect.
