Default Weight loss or gain with Zoloft?

If you have taken or taking Zoloft currently, have you lost weight or gained weight with Zoloft?

The side effect says "weight loss" but I have heard/read many experiences that its common for weight gain so I wasn't sure which one it is. Thanks!

I took Zoloft (or Lustral as it's known in Europe) for a few months and my weight remained constant for that time. I didn't notice any increase in appetite which usually goes along with antidepressants.

When I was on zoloft I lost weight. I ate only because I knew that I needed to eat something, not because I was hungry.
