Acknowledging the Adverse Effects of Drugs on Weight Gain

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and tricyclic antidepressants are two types of antidepressants that may cause weight gain as a side effect.

Corticosteroids: Medicines like corticosteroids, which are often given for conditions like autoimmune diseases and inflammation, can make you gain weight by making you hungrier and retaining more water.

Antipsychotics: Some antipsychotic drugs, which are used to treat mental health problems, can make you gain weight. This could be because they change your metabolism and make you hungrier.

Antihistamines: Some antihistamines used to treat allergies can cause side effects, such as making you hungrier and possibly gaining weight.

Beta-Blockers: Because they slow down your metabolism, beta-blockers, which are often recommended for heart problems and high blood pressure, can make you gain weight.

Hormonal birth control: Some hormonal birth control may make you gain weight, but everyone reacts differently.

Insulin and Oral Hypoglycemics: It is possible to gain weight while taking diabetes medications like insulin and some oral hypoglycemics.

Communicating with Doctors: People on weight-gain drugs must talk to their doctors. Changes in medicine or lifestyle may reduce these effects.
