271792 tn?1334983257 In the beginning it was working very well and slowly over time it is not working for him very well. His doctor decided to supplement the medication with Klonopin. He began on a very low dose of .5 and only took it once a day. He began telling me that he felt lethargic and tired all the time and he didn't know what was wrong. That was when I was told what he was taking and I began warning him of the dangers, side effects and possible withdrawal when he went off it.
Avatar f tn i never gained any weight from klonopin but why you on both they same pill benz, should not be on both are you coming off xanax all together, klonopin is a much better med and long term us .
102999 tn?1326859384 I work my butt off and still the weight stays. I am beginning to think the Klonopin may be hindering weight loss. I will talk to my Dr about all of this when I do see him - but that isnt for months. So, I am curious what some of you may have to say about whether or not Klonopin may be the weight culprit and/or suggestions of whether or not I should try to taper off (and how). Or I would just like to hear your stories about the medication. Thanks a lot!!
Avatar f tn Klonopin can cause weight loss or weight gain, depending on the individual. In me, it caused me to lose about 50 lbs. (and I am not a big individual). It also caused depression, decreased appetite, blurred vision, ineffective digestion and insomnia (it affects stages 3 and 4 of your sleep). I would highly recommend that an individual get on anything other than Klonopin (or any other of the Benzodiazepines). These are some of the most addictive drugs on the planet.

Avatar n tn I am wondering if the Inderal could be effecting her results and why she is not having better luck with the weight loss program.
Avatar f tn It is not intended to be used for weight loss alone! Did you know it can cause hair loss and kidney stones? By the way, I have been on Topomax for about a year and haven't lost any weight becasue of the other drugs I am on. Think twice before you add another med to your list!
Avatar f tn Now that I have stopped taking Geodon, I would like to know if anyone out there has been through the same experience with weight gain AND if weight loss is a side effect of coming off of Geodon? If not, is it easier to lose weight once you are off of the medication? I have my mind back and now I want my body back! Hope to hear some good news!
Avatar n tn I currently take 25mg of topamax in the morning and 50mg at night. I have been on it for 3 weeks and haven't seen any weight loss or side effects. Each week I will increase my dose 25mg. Does anyone have any advise for me. Does this topamax really help people loose weight. I'm a heavy pot smoker and that really gives me the munchies. I know that In order to stop eating at night I got to stop smoking pot. But overrall does Topamax work for weight and when will I see any changes?
Avatar n tn However, I was taking celebrex for arthritis and experienced a weight gain which I cannot shed. Is the ingredient in topamax which causes weight loss known? How can I get the same effect without taking the drug again?
Avatar n tn I thought these 2 meds were known to be weight neutral or cause weight loss. My doctor knows my concern about the weight issue as this is something I have never fought to maintain while everything else in life seems to be a fight. If I stopped taking all meds, would I lose the weight and go back to my normal size. I do lack motivation that's for sure! I think or say I will start a program and don't.
Avatar n tn It should take about 2 months to get to that dosage but I'm getting kinda excited hearing about the benefit of weight loss especially since it was weight loss pills (metabolife and xenedrine) that caused me to find out that I was epileptic in the first place! The doctor told me that i might get tingling in my fingers and i might feel a little dopy but happy dopy he described it as, so I figure i can deal with that! If I start losing weight at a rapid pace i'll definitely post again!
Avatar n tn Klonopin is an especially good medication because it is in the same family but much longer acting, therefore getting off of it is much easier. If it has been effective for you, you should tell your doctor the same things you just told me. If he won't agree, then you may have to consider changing, because it is important to have a good working relationship in order to get help. Klonopin should not effect your weight.
Avatar n tn but klonopin does not cause weight loss, and its main purpose is to reduce the anxiety level...if other things in your life are causing you distress and weight loss, then they have to be attended too.
Avatar n tn I have noticed a weight loss while on klonopin along with leg atrophy and I cannot seem to get my leg muscles strong without exacerbating pain. I have tried to wean several times but couldn't handle the leg pain at night. I am now 1st day off klonopin after weaning slowly. Symptoms are rearing their ugly head but my resolve is hight and I am determined to do this. Does anyone think that the klonopin cause inability for muscles to get stronger and cause weight loss.
Avatar n tn Hi everyone! I have been taking Effexor XR 150mg. for a month and I am experiencing weight loss. I went from weighing 169-172 lbs. to now weighing 155. I love this anti-depressant. I have found that it works for me when no other drug would. I have noticed that I get full fast and I have no desire to eat. I can only say that this drug has altered my sex drive considerably, but I was a bit over-sexed to begin with. The Effexor has made my sex drive more controllable.
Avatar m tn taking me from quarters to whole then back to quartering which landed me in hospital weight loss of 47 pounds tan back to whole pills please help not functioning for 9 months the dosage does not make me drowsey just sick.
709686 tn?1277435759 I can no longer go it alone. Xanax had some really bad side effects for me.....weight loss, increased anger, mental fog and many others. My question is this. Does anyone here have any good reports about Klonopin or Valium? My doctor will only give me xanax which I know is short acting...I need something that lasts longer. What are the side effects short term and long term? Is it worse than xanax when trying to quit? Any help would be appreiated.
Avatar n tn hey thanks for the answer. she says i show signs of anxiety, mainly due to my weight loss (lke 15 lbs since school started in august, but i lose weight easily when stressed), and the fact i couldn't sleep well. I def don't have any attacks of anxiety, i never had any health problems before. Only thing I can think of is i started getting heart palpitations around 3 weeks ago, and i've been kind of paranoid about it. I went to see cardiologist and he said i'm fine.
Avatar m tn Wearing the CPAP for as many hours each night as possible makes most everything from my BP, to fatigue, to pain, to weight loss go better. Since I sleep drugless as often as possible, this combo has remained effective for me over time. Hope you find the best and safest combo for you.
Avatar n tn I do have some problems with some short term memory loss, but that was present before I started the klonopin . I've been on many different meds starting at 19 for depression, and even more now due to the bipolar, so it's hard to say what (if it at all) may have caused the memory loss. Either way, I'd rather forget where I put my keys or not be able to find the word that's on the tip of my tongue than exist in a living nightmare, like I did 4 years ago.
Avatar n tn You should ask your specialist why he/she would have you take Xanax instead of Klonopin. Does Klonopin and the Wellbutrin have some sort of negative reaction when taken with Tareg?
Avatar n tn I wouldnt have noticed the nightmares then due to being over dosed. NOW.....Loss of appietite, loss of sexual interest. like I said the list goes on. The question is, why is it impotant to get to that level of 30-40 mgs before starting sub? What is Suboxone? Will I be safer on it? Would I be able to use xanax cr 2mg also? Thank you again, you all rock!
Avatar m tn 6 years ago i was diagnosed with diabetes and stooped drinking beer, as my diabetes was under control (and now is 'gone' due to weight loss) on weekend i drank 5 large bottles of wine. The following Monday I noticed i was shaking inside.which ive never experienced before. so i went to my Dr. and they put me on .25 mg of Xanax . Another Dr. put me on 300mg of Trazadone which did nothing as did Proxac. I went to a psychologist who determined that my problem was physical and sent me to a Pcyc.
Avatar f tn I guess I am asking if it may be my medications, diet, or what it might be to cause this weight loss, bruising, weakness, dizziness and memory loss and for the blood test to show a low blood count and high sugar levels. If any one might be able to help or have any suggestions, please contact me.
1581886 tn?1296545035 I made this combo by reading the forum and eliminating weight gain meds, and introduce less weight gain meds but with same aim to treat. Please help, I need advice.
Avatar m tn it's more for people who's main problem is depression or as an augmentation to an ssri to help deal with some of the side effects, such as fatigue, weight gain, and loss of libido.
Avatar n tn I've done some research and it seems some of the newer drugs (Effexor and Cymbalta) don't cause weight gain for as many people. In fact some cause weight loss. Has anyone had a good experience with Effexor/Effexor XR or Cymbalta?
