I have been on Wellbutrin for years, but still struggling with social anxiety, even with my increased dosage. My doctor said that I can let him know if I'm still struggling, and he can add Zoloft. Has anyone had any luck with a Wellbutrin/ Zoloft combo for social anxiety? I'm also worried about weight gain because that is something I really struggle with, so I'd like to know if anyone dealt with weight gain on this med combo. Thanks!

      Thanks for your reply! It makes me nervous because probably around 2014 or so I gained like 50 lbs on Cymbalta and I can't deal with that happening again. I have lost weight but it took forever and I have trouble managing it. I'm paying for medical weight loss right now and I don't want to waste the money if I'll end up gaining it back. It's such a hard thing to decide, because I have to deal with my body image all the time, but only deal with the social anxiety here and there, because I work from home so I don't deal with people as much as I uses to.

      Hi! I'm not taking both meds, but I have been on Zoloft for over a year. When I was on 50mg I was feeling happier and less anxious. But on that dose, I gained about 20 pounds over the span of a few months. I am now on 25mg and I have stopped gaining weight, but I can't lose weight either. On this dose, I still feel the effects of anxiety and depression. If you are prone to weight gain, I would do some careful consideration of pros and cons.
