I've been treated with Zoloft for menopausal depression and when increased to 200mg I got carpal tunnel, osteoarthritis and gained 30lbs in 4 months, all these at the same time. Is Zoloft to blame?

Not only Zoloft but many other anti-depressants belonging to this class (they are termed SSRI drugs) cause the weight gain as a result of hormonal imbalance, hypoactive thyroid etc.
