It may increase appetite but it does not CAUSE weight gain - that can be achieved only by overeating.

I'm not trying to be funny here. If zoloft worked to alleviate your symptoms, it seems to me that controlling your intake of food is a safe and workable option. If prozac doesn't work well you still have this option.
