Has anyone else here experienced significant weight gain due to the medication they are on? Could be medical or mental health-related. If so, does eating well and exercise still help reduce it?

Just started taking something for anxiety. My dr warned me that I could gain weight, because it lowers your inhibitions and you could make bad diet decisions. The medication itself doesn’t cause you to gain weight, but you need to be more cognizant of what you are eating.

Well, it eating well and exercising would definitely not hurt. Good luck and i hope the medication is not a long term one

I have been eating clean and exercising as best as I can, but the weight gain issue persists. I take SSRIs and the doctor said they do cause weight gain. It’s really frustrating 😩

My BC made me gain weight. I used to powerlift so I knew how to eat clean however the weight wasn’t coming off so I visited a dietician to help. Would highly suggest that

Need to take prednisone pretty often. Exercise and diet helps significantly but at the end of the day it requires a lot of patience and self-love to get through drastic changes in weight due to meds. See if they can help tweak your dosage/try alternate formulas while still managing your underlying condition. Wish you the best through this journey.

Also had to take prednisone. It sucked. I used my fitness pal to monitor my food and see if I was really in need of food or it was just the meds talking. It helped me make better choices and the second time around I didn’t put on weight. Good luck!

After pumping myself up fir a VbAC and studying breathing techniques and being ready to give birth, I am just at an impasse. My doc scheduled a csection for Thursday because she doesn’t want to wait

Hey guys! Went to college with full intention of getting into medical school. Graduated right before the pandemic which gave time to think long and hard about going to med school.

I’ve reached out to hundreds on LinkedIn, which lead to a few referrals, but have heard nothing back from any firms. Anyone willing to help me out with some advice and guidance?

I’m having a hard time staying motivated lately. Really apathetic about everything. Feels like I’m falling into a bad depressive slump.

There’s no one to shift my workload to, and as much as the legal industry talks about lawyer mental health, it’s still a taboo topic. I know it’s the pandemic causing this downswing, but I don’t know how to shake myself out of this rut.
