Zoloft & Training

Will taking 50mg Zoloft daily affect ability to build strength and/or muscle?
Thanks in advance,
WT

You should be fine. Ive been on up to 200 mgs before and didnt notice any problems gaining strength and size. Im on 100 mgs now and love it. On a side note I really like zoloft. it took a few wks to really kick in but it has been a life saver. Hope this helps and pm me if you have any questions. God Bless

I’m on Effexor and Wellbutrin, and I was on Celexa before. I didn’t find it made any difference. Depression can supposedly cause low T levels though, and possibly elevate cortisol especially if it is coupled with anxiety.
