I have, both times I've been on Zoloft. The first time, I was on it by itself; the second, with Wellbutrin (which is known for causing weight loss).

I don't know how to describe it exactly, but it affected my appetite just like it affected my libido. In other words, the physical urges (sex, hunger) could be activated, and were, but it was like my brain just wasn't worried about doing anything about them. It killed the emotional, gratification-searching part of both of those drives. So my stomach would rumble, but I just felt too unworried to want to eat.

I don't know that that's a very common side effect of Zoloft, though.
