: Has anyone had weight gain as a side effect of Vioxx? The first month I was on it I gained about 8 pounds. It seems like I remember reading that you are to call your doctor if you have had rapid weight gain while taking Vioxx. Why would this be? Is it playing with your hormones or thyroid?? Maybe it's just me?? Any ideas or similar situations??
I believe I gained about 12 pounds, partly because I wasn't excercising because of the pain and partly because of fluid reduction because I was able to lose 11 pounds of it back pretty quickly once I was able to excercise again.
