Ativan - Weight gain?

Did anyone gain weight on Ativan? Does it have any effect on weight? Or none?

Re: Ativan - Weight gain?

I had this same question. When I was on it the only side effect I had was INCREDIBLE appetite increase. About 45 mins to an hour after taking it I was completely starving no matter how much I had already eaten. Weird. Maybe just coincidental.
