I've been on Zoloft and it didn't make me gain any weight. Plus my doctor says it's safe to take during pregnancy.

anyone taken lexapro?  Does it make you gain weight or feel zombie like?

Heh.  I've taken them all.  None of them made me gain weight.  Prozac and Zoloft are the ones they have the most data on as far as not having negative effects on the baby.

Stay away from paxil!  That made me gain a ton of weight.  Most antidepressents that I know of the higher the dosage the more weight you gain, but lower dosages can actually help you lose weight.  It's weird, but true.  Like prozac in lower dosages helped this coworker of mine lose weight.  I'm sorry you're so depressed!  I've been through depression, too... if you want to talk about it, I'd love to!  ***@****

Actually, prozac is a category C, which means they do not know if it has potential problems.
