Weight gain from taking medication

marie26July 9, 2006

Has anyone gained weight from taking a certain drug? How do you get it off?

I gained weight with birth control pills. A vasectomy cured that.

Friends of mine who have taken anti-depressants have gained a ton of weight and the only thing they could do was to change medication.

My understanding is that with the exception of Metformin, drugs to control diabetes cause weight gain. I am not looking forward to that.

You may have to be more specific as to the type of drug you are taking to get a good answer

I think it's the arthrotec I'm taking that's causing me to gain weight.
