I'm positive the lack of sex drive is from Zoloft. Even when I'm severely depressed, I have a pretty high sex drive. When I was on Wellbutrin alone, it was boosted even higher (I was like a teenage boy! :)).
I do wonder about the weight gain thing. I've lost 17 pounds from being depressed/being on Wellbutrin and Zoloft. Since I only weighed 115 to start with, that weight needs to come back. However, reports of Remeron weight gain are so extreme that I worry about being huge. I've never been overweight before, but I doubt I'd enjoy it. And since I have always been naturally thin, I don't have skills/experience in monitoring what or how much I eat. And people say it's very hard to control that Remeron appetite.
Guess the only way to know is to try it. This pdoc really seems to know her stuff, so I'm comfortable trusting her judgment.
Plus, I think I'd rather be a little plump than have no sex drive whatsoever. When I go out with someone, I can't figure out whether I like him or not, which makes dating much more of a guessing game (like it's not already!)
