i have lost 42 lbs since being on oxy but it has helped so very much, but im down to 97 lbs and need your help out there.
Oxy can do that. You might want to buy some protein drinks at your supermarket, or something like ensure, drink it after every meal you eat.
I know it's hard to eat while on this med, but 97 pounds is pretty thin! Has your doc threatened to take you off your pain med if you don't gain weight?
Best wishes, and get yourself to a healthy weight!!
I too take oxycodone, but unfortuneatly have not lost weight. I gained about 20 pounds or so when I quit smoking & no matter what I do it won't go away. I can't exercise due to my severe conditions & that doesn't help, but I've not heard of anyone complaining about weight loss. Do you have a good appetite, & eating well? Maybe the oxycodone is masking another condition. I believe it is worth mentioning to your doctor if you feel you are eating good & still losing weight. Just my thoughts... Mary
