1266083 tn?1358564062 The doctor said she only wanted me to gain no more than 15 lbs during my pregnancy. Is that normal? I mean, I know I'm overweight but only 15 lbs. She said it's good that I've been losing weight and eating healthier. She says that the foods I eat are coming to my body (even if I'm not eating a lot) and that my "fat stores" and nutrients are going to the baby. I asked her if I was getting any nutrients and she said "yes, some. But the baby gets it off of you.

761614 tn?1234300320 I recently got off of my Crestor, after a Medifast diet that let me lose 40 pounds. That helped a lot. I am hoping that with the weight loss that will also help with the withdrawal of other meds.
242532 tn?1269550379 Your doctor told you to lose weight. Are you struggling? So your doctor says to you that you should lose 10 to 20 pounds. If you are a diabetic, he will tell you that you will reduce the amount of medication you need to control your disease as well as decrease the likelihood of complications. If you have high blood pressure or heart disease, he will tell you that this will take the load off your heart, help you live longer, and many of your symptoms will go away.
Avatar n tn I've had depression for a long time and don't think it's true if you suffer clinical chronic depression that exercise tops medication in any gold standard studies. I say this agreeing that anyone with depression can benefit by exercising, but you know, pro athletes suffer depression and they certainly get their exercise. Nobody knows what causes depression, and no medication yet invented cures it, they just tamp down the symptoms.
242532 tn?1269550379 3 Reasons You Won’t Lose Weight Today we are going to discuss the three reasons you won't lose weight: an overpowering urge to binge, an intense hunger when you know the hunger is not for food, and a mind filled with thoughts about food or worries about weight. The good news: once you learn to control the emotional eating that causes these three obstacles... well, then you can take off the weight -- and keep it off -- for good.
Avatar f tn I am wondering about others who are involved in med help and how you cope with this and other issues like meds and relationships.
Avatar n tn there are quite a few different medications that can make it difficult to lose weight. Some are notorious for causing weight gain, as well.
Avatar m tn Do I have depression, and if so, is there any way I could lose this weight? I have tried so many diets and exercise regimes and they only make me feel worse afterwards. What do it do?
5032487 tn?1365824021 Trileptal is off label for BP, but it's used pretty frequently. It's apparently the new improved version of Tegretol, with fewer side effects. Topomax is also used off label, but it's gotten the nickname of dopomax because it causes cognitive issues in a fair number of people. It does tend to make you lose weight, though. I personally would go for Trileptal above Topomax, but I'm doing fine on Lamictal so it's a bit of a moot point.
Avatar n tn I have tried for the past year to lose the weight. I have depression &I anxiety &I the medication they put me on (the only one that works for me) makes me keep the weight.

934950 tn?1244736514 My weight posted is as of Sunday June 7th. I will not weight myself until tomorrow. I am counting calories. Doing pretty good. And excercising, particularly on the gazelle.
Avatar f tn Is it possible to lose any of the extra weight gained while on this medication, or does everything i eat just turn to fat???
Avatar f tn I started to lose weight at about age 12/13, my legs bacame very thin and are now so thin that I have to wear three pairs of trousers together to look normal. You can see all the bones and ligaments and the skin has become very thin and silvery, nearly all viens are visable, you can also see the bone in my behind I dont have buttocks just a bone! I am now 30 and dont feel I can live like this any more.
Avatar f tn Does the leaflet that comes with the Wellbutrin say that you are likely to lose weight on it? Have other people who are taking it tell you that they have lost weight since taking it? The side effect of a lot of anti-depressants is weight gain. It has nothing to do with over eating. Many people will tell you they have gained weight whilst on anti-depressant medication. Others have lost. I think it all comes down to the individual person and how they respond to the drug they are taking.
1351078 tn?1416313146 Im going to start to try to lose weight I am setting a goal to lose 27 lbs . I hope it dont take that long but Im going to start with that and go from there .
Avatar n tn Is it funny that when you want to lose weight , you lose it so fast and say , WOW THAT WAS FAST! But it is not funny when you try to lose weight but then you just give up it's not easy to do that. but you just should not do that .EVER! so i hope you post me back see ya! bye!
2030769 tn?1343647674 If you read the leaflet that comes with the medication it will tell you that some people lose weight, and some people gain weight. I have gained masses of weight, and other people on this site have said the same. You just have to be very careful what you eat. I find Effexor is an excellent anti-depressant for me, except for the weight gain.
Avatar n tn Add to that the rest regimine, and you have a recipe for unhappiness. Since you were able to lose all that weight to begin with, I am sure you willhave no prob. losing it again. Also, as this is your first pg you wont know this, but a lot of the weight is water weight from bloating and will be lst with no effort throught sweat and urine and nursing. The recomended weight gain is 35 lbs, and youve gained 50.
Avatar f tn Make an appt. to see a psychiatrist so the two of you can determine the best course of treatment for you...therapy and/or medication. It's wonderful that you recognize that your eating to ease your depression and that's a good start! I'm sure you are monitored on a regular basis with your medication and bloodwork. I have hypothyroidism and I'm monitored closely.
Avatar n tn It hasn't been fun for me getting off effexor but it's been worth it. Try to taper off slowly. I hope this helps you with the weight and wish you all the best.
