Medicines and weight gain

My daughter is on Concerta 36 mg and Zoloft 20 mg for her ADHD and Anxiety.  Has anyone had drastic weight gainon these meds or a combination of these meds?  My doctor says they don't.  I am not syure about that.

    I see no listed side effects for weight gain for either of these meds. If anything you tend to see a weight loss with Concerta. It is possible that with her anxiety reduced, she has started eating normally?  How old is she?
