Many of our medications will cause weight gain. about
2 yrs ago I balloned up to an all time high for me and the extra weight just made me feel terrible. Over time I eventually lost the bulk of that weight. My gi dr tells me peole with pain pumps do gain weight from the drugs used in them, I am thinking great, just what I did not want to hear. I have crohns disease and I am constantly yoyoing with my weight. I am either losing like crazy or putting it on, its a constant battle. I try not to think much about
it because either way I iwill eventually get the weight off. I gained quite a bit of weight once while on Lyrica.
