I, too, am disgusted. I started on zoloft two years ago and I was shocked when I discovered I was gaining weight, because I was not doing anything different. I stopped Zoloft (slowly) and experienced the same irritation and anger that put me on it in the first place so I went on Prozac, and I have been on it for a year. Of all the stupid side effects, weight gain is the one this former bulimic cannot handle. I keep thinking that someday I'll go off the Prozac and exercise and eat better and everything will be fine. I don't know when that will be since there never seems to be a good time for ad withdrawal. Hmmm, maybe I should try cocaine? Just kidding, but I feel that desperate sometimes. I am thankful that I'm not where I used to be emotionally, and I can handle my bad moods now. Though sometimes I feel like the Prozac isn't working.
What a stupid trade-off.
