I gained weight rapidly and want to know if any of these medications or combination of any of them caused the weight gain.
Can you please give me information as to whether taking these medicines can cause these symptoms. Thanks.
Trying to figure out if my symptoms are related to medications I am taking or due to chronic fatigue syndrome which I have been diagnosed with and maybe fibromyalgia or lumbar stenosis or MS.
