> Just started Zoloft on 5/15 and have found myself being ravenously hungry at times. It's not psychological (I don't think) because my stomach growls loudly. Will this go away or am I doomed to gain back all the weight I lost on the Atkins diet?

Zoloft either causes the munchies, reduces the
ability to say "no", or both. To me, SSRI's seem
to cause this general "I don't give a shit" syndrome
which can lower a persons ability to say no to
sweets. I found it made me smoke cigarettes like
mad (after not smoking for years), drink at parties
and generally use poor judgment around what I did
to my body. Similarly, I found myself talking/flirting
to strangers and starting all sorts of liasons,
which was fun.

What good can you say about a drug that reduces your
inhibitions and fears while giving you poor
judgement at the same time? You can say it is much
better that being suicidal, but not a sustainable
state of being...
