She told me today that she wants to start some kind of therapy and get on Zoloft because she's depressed. She has never ever seemed depressed to me- I know its definitely possible, especially given whatever emotional problems she has with this eating disorder- but I was very surprised when she told me.
It got me to thinking:
Is weight loss a side effect of Zoloft?
EDIT: Okay, I have determined that weight loss is a side effect. Now I want to know (especially if you have had experience with the drug): is it a pronounced enough side effect to make someone want to take it for the purpose of losing weight?
I mean, you can lose weight on hormonal birth control, too, which is probably easier to get. Do you think that realistically she might want to take it for weight loss purposes?
