I have a friend that put on 50 pounds from a med, before they took her off. When I first fled my marriage I was in a homeless shelter and several women there had gained so much weight from their psyche meds that they had to sleep on breathing machines. Steroids can also cause crazy weight gain of both fat and edema. Unfortunately it is the only drug that works for out of control asthma. Chemotherapy is awful for weight gain too.
Considering I know I am luck for only gaining about 20+ lbs vs the 60 one friend put on and the 75 another did due to meds. It's so awful that something you need can cause pain in another area. For some putting on the weight is nothing, for others it causes more heath problems. Talk about adding insult to injury.
Does anyone happen to know if they sell Dandelion root tea in packets commonly? I'm sure I can get it online but am wondering if my health food store could possibly carry it in tea bag form.
