    Question Medicines and weight-gain

    are there any people who have the knowledge of medicines and weight-gain (medicines like anti-depressiva, i don't mean AS) , why weight gain , what's the difference in your body that it will let you gain weight , or is it just because the medicines will let your appetite increase and you eat more , or is there some chemical change in your body like something that decreases your metabolism ????

    i already know that some Corticosteroids will let your body gain weight , but what's this ??

    all info is welcome ....

    Thanks G.

    On corticosteroids you gain weigh because of water retention. Patients after organ transplantation must take those to suppress body imune system and rejection of transplanted organ. Their faces look like full moon.
    Anti-depressive drugs suppress your apetite.

    Thats all I can remember for now.

    nobody can help me out with any other info on this topic ????

    btw , i thought anti-depr./psych. would increase your appetite and it would slow down your metabolism ,so that would be the 2 main reasons why you gain weight when you on pills, but that's what i know/heard.....
    i really would like to get some info about this "hot" topic.....

    thanks TG
