Been on brintellix for almost a year and I've gained 30# my depression and anger issues are getting worse..first 6 months was good but now it ain't working with my menopausal moods and temper tantrums..my world has fallen apart once again

I couldn't figure out why I have gained so much weight! I have always used a rescue inhaler without any issues. About 7 months ago my doctor put me on Spiriva and since then I have gain 35 pounds! I never put the 2 together. However it helps me greatly! About s week or two ago once I realized it is the Spiriva, I tried stopping it but found I needed my rescue inhaler several times throughout the day. With Spiriva I barley need it. But this weight gain has to stop. It is making me extremely depressed. I don't want to be social, I have lost my confidence! I have to stop taking this, but how?

I have been on Vidaza for 4 months. My weight went from 127, which i have bee for years to 152. Doctor. Not overly concerned. He said to walk 45 minutes a day. I am very uncomfortable . Any suggestions.....i.have also been on Lexapro, low dose for a year and a half.

Cimzia and weight gain
I've been on Cimzia for about 5 years for Crohns disease. My weight gain went from 170 lbs to 215 lbs. I look like I'm pregnant which I'm not. Very bloated! I talked to my doctors and they said eat a high protein diet. Easier said than done. The doctors really don't care about the weight gain side effects as long as the medicine works. Let me know if anyone has had any success with cimzia and losing weight

Bloating weight gain
I lost 8 lbs steadily after having my daughter and then started up on Errin. I have been taking it a full month now and I've gained 9 lbs back!! I literally look so bloated like 5 months pregnant. I work out constantly and eat super clean. It's extremely frustrating. I'm going to stop it. I was put on this bc I'm breastfeeding and its "safe".

Boost plus gain weight
I have been taking bloos plus for 5 months .. I have gained almost 17 lbs

Ugh!
Ugh!
With this pill I have gained 15 lbs that I can't seem to lose. I never had problems with acne, now my face is breaking out, oily, and have some what dark facial hair! Embarrassing! The only thing I liked was that my periods were predictable, they were light, and last 3-4days.

On Eligard for 2 Years
My last shot was in April 2014. Dr. told me that would be my last shot. It's now been 14 months since that last shot and the hot flashes continue all the time. I've gained 26 lbs no matter what I do to attempt to keep the weight off. If I go "starvation" for a week I can lose about 4-5 lbs. but as soon as I start eating "normal" …..here comes that 5 lbs RIGHT BACK!! We eat pretty healthy as well. Steamed, broiled, lots of dark green veggies, fish and limit red meat quite a bit. Dr. tells me that it will take 18 months from the last Eligard shot for the hot flashes to diminish then stop. That puts me into about fall of 2015. PSA still good at 0.010 but the shot is still doing it's job. Concerned what the level will creep to when the shot stops working.
