Do some meds contribute to weight gain
cindigal posted:
I am kinda frustrated about this. I just read a article in Web MD about "Reasons Your Not Losing Weight". I do take a few meds for my conditions but at the same time I go to the gym, go on the elliptical 30 mins with the arm and legs and the same timne. Do a steady pace and then at home Ii use my swiss ball for sit-ups. I watch my diet, just eat chicken any way except fried. Eat lots of veggies and fruit. Dont eat after 7 pm. Get plenty of sleep. I take a few meds. I do take synthroid for underlying thyroid problem since I was a child but dont overrule that its a contributory problem.

I also take topamax (Topiramate 100 mg), and Ativan (Lorazepam 1 mg) for anti-anxiety). those two medsI have been taking for 3 years now with no change. I only go to the doc every 5 months or so to get the refills. I go to a public center ...because I didn't have insurannce at the time and I have a great doc that will send the scripts to the pharmacy. My son takes me to the doc because I dont drive. Every month he gets the meds. I dont know if the meds are contributory to me not able to losing weight. I am so frustrated about it. I am doing everything right to be on tract.
