From this study (12 months ago):
I think this medicine I'm overdosing on! Weight gain sore breast high blood pressure fatigue
From this study (5 years ago):
also taking 1200 units of calcium and 2000 IU of vitamin D3.
From this study (6 years ago):
I am extremely concerned about very sudden weight gain. With the exception of the Wellbutrin XL (which I know is weight neutral or negative)& the spironlactone,I have been on all of these medications for quite some time. I am beginning to wonder if the prozac could be causing it or if perhaps it is an interaction between two or more of the meds. I AM getting older but my eating and exercise habits have remained consistant and could not possibly be attributed to the amount of weight I have gained in the last six months. For a short amount of time,I was on the generic form of Wellbutrin and as I discovered after much research,that medication CAN lead to weight gain. I quickly switched to the XL but my weight continued to increase. The newest addition of spironolactone has compounded my problem. I am getting desperate and plan to see an endocrinologist soon who hopefully will be able to advise/help me.
