- Take low dose aspirin daily. have gained 35# in 2 yrs. also cortef 5 mg daily. tapering off cortef, but could weight gain be an aspirin side effect? (1 answer)
Weight in 2010 = 148#. Blood clot 2010 - take small dose aspirin per day. Weight Sept 12, 2013=175#. In addition to aspirin take 5 mg Cortef for adrenal insufficiency (am in process of tapering down the Cortef). Armoir thyroid, flexerel , BP meds as needed. Discontinued Prozac June 2013. I am taking steps to figure out why I just keep gaining weight. I know that cortef being a steroid could be causing gain, but today I read that my low dose aspirin could cause weight gain. Could it be both? What alternative to aspirin, since I sure don't want another blood clot.
Hope someone can help me figure this out. Thanks,

- Addison's disease and gabapintin (2 responses)
a 100 mg gabapentin capsule has left me totally spaced out with blurred vision and disorientation for 3 days now. Never again do I want to go near one of those capsules. Dr. prescribed 100 mg. druggist filled 300 mg. I am sure thankful I doubled checked and got 100 mg instead. The 300 mg would have been a disaster.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
During my 13 yrs on Zoloft /Sertraline I have started having odd symptoms, see the above. I accidentally got rid of the reflux when I quit Sertraline for a short time. I also cut the dosage from 150 Mg to 50 when I had to start taking S again - my anxiety kicked in again. Reflux medicins did not help. So, for appr 9 years my dosage was 150 Mg, now it is 50 Mg. The doctors I have been seeing are useless and know nothing, they merely renew the prescription.
The new symptoms have crept on over the past year or two. First the itching, then tongue biting and dry mouth, later the rigid tongue which becomes more so come evening,
I am convinced that the reason is the drug Sertraline and have decided to quit for good, with the help of starting on a rigorous excercise program, wish me luck!
From this study (1 month ago):
I started general supplements and have been waking with the most severe dry mouth
From this study (2 months ago):
These are some of the problems I am experiencing. It seems like my dosage is too high, however if I do not take more than 60mg at a time then the Vyvanse has no affect on me whatsoever. I am most concerned about waking up to catch my breath every 30 seconds at night. I was prescribed Adderrall throughout high school and never experienced this.
