They CAN cause you to gain weight, but some of them actually cause the opposite..often on most of them, in the beginning, people lose weight since they tend to cause loss of appetite.

I wish I could blame my weight on Zoloft. Jacqui, will you allow that of me? :)

Some people eat because they are depressed...some people lose their apetite when they are depressed...that type may gain weight with the AD as they are no longer depressed and their apetite returns

You have the allowance, and I'll go on the record by saying you look fine to me.

Actually there have been quite a few mentioning gaining weight after quitting opiates.
