Question Does Klonopin cause weight gain?

Just wondering why my weight is now creeping up again when I am dieting and exercising. The only thing really different is I am taking Klonopin now before I go to bed.

Re: Does Klonopin cause weight gain?

Klonopin, to my knowledge doesn't cause weight gain unless it causes you to be more lethargic, but it sounds to me like you aren't less active.

Are you taking any anti-depressants? Some of them are notorious for causing weight gain.

Also, when yous ay creeping up are we tlaking 100 to 105 lbs or are we talking about a larger issue here? I can change 10 lbs in a weekend, in fact last weekend I did add 10 lbs. Unfortunately, I got sick soon after and lost ten lbs, but if this is a 5 lb issue over the holidays then I think we can safely say it was the turkey and stuffing. LOL. Everyone gains a little weight over the holidays from stress and from, well, lot's of really good food to eat.

Take care and have a good New Year!

unfortunatly I did gain weight with Klonopin. But.... most people do not. Every medication I have been on I have gained weight on. It is awful. it is just how my body is.

Make sure you eat every few hours , small meals, to keep your metabolism in order.
