Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I work out 6 days a week and seem to be gaining weight gradually every year. I think I eat the right kind of foods or rather watch what I eat carefully. I just can not loose a pound!


  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • All of the symptoms I listed started after I began taking Ambien. I quit taking it after about 2 months. The symptoms have not gone away after 60 days.


  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • I am an obese male who lost 70 pounds over the last three years. My weight remained stable for nearly one year. My doctor prescribed and I have been compliant with taking the above mentioned medications for the last nine months and they were keeping my blood glucose in check and lowered my A1C by 60% over that time. Over the last three months, I have gained 8 lbs. without any change to my caloric intake or exercise regimen (I walk two miles a day.). Has my body adapted to taking these medications and now be causing weight gain?
