I have never taken it I'm starting paxil tomorrow.
Some people have gained weight while taking Xanax. It calms all that nervousness and it enables you to stop pacing or having that jittery feeling that may cause other movement. You will be able to sit down and watch the TV if you wish, that is why I think folks gain weight when taking Xanax, just my opinion. But I personally never gained weight on it, just read about the side effects and weight gain is on the list.
(Now gabapentin is a different story, I was a wee piggy on that stuff, so if your doctor writes for gabapentin, decline!)
Best wishes and you won't gain if you go into it knowing that it's possible, just get some exercise, good luck!
