Hi and Welcome,

Congratulations on your 70 days sober! That's great!

Have you talked to your dr about your weight gain? I have no personal experience with the drugs, but I know others will be along who may have some insight.

Welcome and congrats on your sober time!

I don't have any experience with these drugs either but wondered if the weight gain is something that happened almost overnight since you indicated that you just recently left treatment. No weight gain in treatment? Any dr. involved who could answer?

I'd post this on the substance abuse forum too - it may have already been asked and answered so some searching over there might shed some light on your question, but I'd ask again anyway. Take care.

Hi threegirls

Welcome - well done on your sober time

I'd check with my doctor too - they know you and your medical history better than anyone here can...but you can always check here and in our substance abuse forum for other peoples similar experiences

Hope you find some answers, either way - looking forward to seeing you around

D
