Ooooooh.... - October 11th 2018, 12:23 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, because it contains weight figures, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

So I gained 20 pounds in a month. I have recently had two medicine changes. The first one is I was put back on my aristada injection, another was that I was introduced to the lupron injection. My psychiatrist was very concerned about my weight gain but we don't think it's the aristada because I've been on that before. I called my OB/GYN about the lupron and he's supposed to call me tomorrow morning when he comes back in. I researched it and an allergic reaction to the lupron is rapid weight gain. I'm worried It's not a lifestyle change for me or anything, I've been eating less frequently and have been drinking more water than soda, so I highly doubt that the reason for the weight gain is negligence on my part.

I don't know much about medications but have heard that weight gain can be a common side effect or reaction. I'm sorry you are having to go through this. Did your OB/GYN call you back?

I hope that you have been able to eat enough, even though it sounds more like the medication is at fault. Hope that a solution can be found- keep us updated!

My OB/GYN said it shouldn't be the lupron causing it, so I have an appointment with my primary doctor on Monday.

I am taking a medicine (not birth control) whose side effect is weight gain.

Hopefully you are able to find out what's going on. Keep us updated, please.

Okay, so the weight is water weight and she thinks that the Lupron is the cause. She highly suggests not getting the Lupron any more but said it's up to my OB/GYN and me to make that decision. I explained to her that my OB/GYN said that it would take a few injections of the Lupron to get into my system and not cause side effects. She wants to see me in a few weeks to see if the swelling has subsided and to check my weight again, she said she may have a consult with the OB/GYN if I gain more water weight and he keeps me on the injection. It's all just a waiting game now to see if the symptoms get any better. She said she may recommend a water pill for me if the water weight doesn't subside.

I'm glad to hear you got an explanation of what is going on, and I hope they're able to do something about it! Since it seems like you got an answer I am going to close this, but if you want it reopened feel free to let me know!! Good luck!
