Xanax and Medifast

Postby justaguest » May 11th, 2007, 8:00 am

Does anyone know if Xanax will make you gain weight or has anyone used it while on Medifast. I'd like to know your experiences.

Benzos are not normally know to cause weight gain. I take Klonopin daily and Ativan as needed and I do not believe they have hindered my weight loss.

I have to be careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business.

I don't think they should affect you, although I'm thinking that if you are taking it for anxiety you may find out that you are an emotional eater! :) Antidepressants seem to have more of an effect on weight loss...

Thanks for the info.

Okay...can anyone tell me if you've had more succes with mostly shakes, or using the other meals, or what. I have heard that sometimes people do better with more shakes and few other things.

Shakes use soy, which is a natural appetite suppressor amongst other things. Other than that, whatever helps you stay on program is the best thing.
