A 25-year-old female asked:

Does zoloft (sertraline) cause changes in your metabolism or is the increased/decreased appetite that causes the changes in weight?

Psychoactive: Agents that affect behavior and mood can typically affect appetite and secondarily weight gain (less frequently loss). Not really a metabolic shift with Zoloft (sertraline) per se.
