    Prevacid & Weight Gain

    Does anyone know if Prevacid or Maalox can cause weight gain?

    Re: Prevacid & Weight Gain

    I gained 45 pounds in 6 months after going on Nexium 2x per day. I don't know if it was due to the meds, increased appetite, or slower metabolism (I had just turned 30). I admit that I ate quite a bit of white-flour foods during that time period (more than usual). Lots of pasta and breads and my favorites, crepes and popovers. Still, 45 was a lot of weight. I've lost 40 of it by now, due to everyday exercise and restricted calories since I started a diet in August. But the good news is that the restricted calorie diet really worked to control my LPR - not because of just fewer calories and weight loss, but I discovered that really small meals meant less coughing and reflux for me. Still take the meds though...
