From this study (2 years ago):
I take 17.5 mg of warfarin per day. This maintains my INR at 1.8. I have to take this medication for the rest of my life. I have been trying to lose weight for the last 2 years without success. I think the medication is making weight loss difficult.
From this study (4 years ago):
I have been on Keppra Xr for a yr now, and in that yr my docs have reduced my hypothyroid medication plus I am gaining weight like crazy, even though I exercise and eat no more than 1000 calories/day..
