I've heard that if you go on Amitiza you can gain weight from it like on SSRI's but that doesn't make sense to me. Is it true?
Hi, no it will not make you cause weight gain.
You see there are other meds as you mention, but what makes you gain the weight is not the med itself, they increase appetite and that´s when weight gain occurs.
Take care and have a nice weekend.
Thanks - I appreciate your input.
