Are your medications making you overweight?

Filed under: ,

Did you know that some of the medications you may be taking right now could be making you overweight? A few years ago, most people I talked to did not know this, but it's become pretty standard knowledge in the public recently with all the coverage of different diets and such.

How about birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy, antidepressants, various mood stabilizers, diabetic medications and steroids? All of these items can cause unwanted weight gain -- but is there anything you can do about it?

According to this article over at eDiets, a combination of lowered calorie intake and increased activity works best for losing those pounds caused by some of the medications you may be taking right now.
