Default Flexeril and Weight Gain?

Did any of you gain like ALOT of weight QUICKLY while taking Flexeril? My only other thought is the thyroid... but my level was normal at most recent labs, and this just was QUICK.... maybe the lowering of the thyroid didnt help???

So.... ANYONE??? 15lbs in a month 6wks most

also, i never used to have sugar and carb cravings (im hypoglycemic) so those are BAAAD.. but i find myself like searching for food at odd hours!!!!

please tell me its the flexeril. and theres an alternative medicine my doc might put me on instead....??

Also, is gas (burping too) normal? seems im doing it more often lately, and a few days ago my stomach bloated and was so painful, i had to beg my mom to NOT take me to the hospital, stomach was just swollen and hard... but after enough sleeping pills and pain killers, i went to bed and woke up fine.... i read IBS is common with fibro, but i dont want to just assume everythings connected either

Default Re: Flexeril and Weight Gain?

What other pills are you on? LYRICA AND GABAPENTON CAN CAUSE WEIGHT GAIN.
