I don't know about Zoloft. Like you said so well, everyone's chemistry is different. I would say that I have had a good reaction in the past to Paxil. Prozac?!?! Talk about dry mouth and unpleasant size effects!
Sometimes if a medication no longer works for you, you need to have your doctor change it. I don't really know about Wellbutrin, since I did not tolerate it very long, but Paxil seems to have a lot less side effects.
I am currently going to stick it out and give Effexor a fair trial (past the initial effects part). 70Mg to start.
As for the weight gain, I think you might experience a little of that with any of these. But Prozac and Wellbutrin together might increase the weight gain (not 100% sure). I experienced some weight gain from Luvox and Paxil, but when the Luvox was decreased I lost some weight. Hope this helps!
