I have chronic IBS-D and I take Bentl 10 mg 2 x a day and Lomotil 2 x a day. I also take 75 mg of Effexor XR for anxiety.I have gained about 15 lbs. because I craved food, especially sweets all the time. I don't know which med made this happen and I looked them all up and none have the side effect of weight gain. Last week I really bit the bullet and said enough is enough and cut out all sweets, drank tons of water and hardly a carb touched my lips. Well today was weigh day and guess what--I didn't lose an ounce. I had not expected to lose a bunch, but at least a pound would have been nice.Any eating advice? I cannot eat salad at all, most veggies do me in and of course no fatty sauces. I am really upset about this and hope that some of you may have had some success at removing some of these unwanted pounds. Also, I had a huge "D" attack yesterday from a very stressful situation and if I had not had that, when I got on the scale today, I probably would have gained weight.Thanx!!!
