- Will sulindac cause me to gain weight? (1 answer)
I am 45 overweight still. I have lost 50 pounds prior to starting sulindac and now I'm just losing one pound a month. Exercise (zumba, elipitical , walk, light weights, and swim) which I do 2 of those workouts daily and eat fairly good. Is any of these medications interfering with my weight loss?

Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 weeks ago):
The drugs came only after the symptoms. I will lose nuvigil next month as insurance companies won't cover and apparently there are no alternatives. (Adderal but doc won't write that script for some reason which would save me $500 and help with concentration!!) I had a stressful event that caused (I believe) the Sleeplessness, depression, almost felt like a nervous breakdown. Pain in legs and back. The worst part are the chills/sweats accompanied by akathisia during the sleepless nights.
