Have you been able to lose weight while on medication?

Hi all, I was using the Mirena coil to try to control endometriosis and put on over 14lbs as a result.I had surgery for my endo and to remove the Mirena 8 weeks ago. Today I had my 1st injection (decapeptyl) to try and control the endo. One of it's side effects will most likely be weight gain.Also I will be taking a low dose antidepressant (citalopram/celexa) for the mood side effects of the injection so may have weight gain from those also :P

My question is have any of you been able to lose weight while on medication?
Thanks in advance.

Some medication contributes to losing weight because of the side effects. I haven't experienced that, though. I gained weight instead.
