    No.

    I honestly can't remember what I was on, it was a few years ago now. I did put on weight but I had lost quite a bit as I'd stopped eating, so it didn't bother me.

    My Mum was on zoloft and lost quite a lot of weight as she was no longer hungry.

    OP, I hope you have a GP or such that understands how you're feeling and your ED and will help you accordingly. Best of luck.

    I was on Fluvoxamine and I lost weight, one of the side effects for me was loss of appetite.

    I'm on Lexapro (again) and have never put on weight while taking it. I have also taken Fluoextine (sp?) and Zoloft and have never put on weight with any of them.

    I have used:
    Effexor - no weight gain, but made me crazy and awful withdrawals.

    Paroxetine - weight gain (rapid) and massive side effects.

    Zoloft - no wight gain, but did zero for my mental health issues.

    I have heard that Cymbalta doesn't really have issues with weight gain.

    Everyone reacts differently though and it really is a matter of finding out what's best for you.

    I'm on something completely different now and it's working a treat. PM me if you need more info

    Thanks for the info guys. I'm not sure it's the way I want to go, I dunno. No, I dont have a doctor, we don't even have a family GP.

    I've had no weight gain on lexapro, pristiq, Prozac or Zoloft.

    I've had massive weight gain on Xyprexa and Seroquel. But these are more used when antidepressants don't work.
