Weight is a phenomenon that has been blamed on many things, but the simple reality is, it's all a matter of diet and exercise. The Zoloft may have given you a better appetite. Many people tend to be unable to eat when depressed. While a side effect of Zoloft is slight weight gain, that may most simply be attributed to an increased appetite. Prozac tends to help people loose weight. Maybe that works well for people who tend to overeat when they're depressed. In any case, you'll need to change your diet/exercise habits if you want to loose the weight.

Will taking Wellbutrin with Zoloft help to lose the weight gained from Zoloft?

My wife took both - Zoloft first for about a year, then added the Wellbutrin. It did not help with the weight gain, but it did help with her sex drive. She LOVES the Wellbutrin. She takes 300mg in the morning and 150mg in the evening. The extra 150 has a major impact on her recovery with bulimia. She has recently been able to go off of both her Zoloft and the Adderall she was taking. They were putting her into a fog and desensitizing her emotions and reactions. She went cold turkey off the Zoloft, adding a supplement called 5htp instead. This works on serotonin, just like Zoloft. From what I've see and read, Zoloft's benefits do NOT outweigh the benefits. Just my opinion for what it's worth.....
