My doctor recently prescribed Methadone for my chronic pain issued which is traditionally used for cancer patients along with another drug called Bacolfen which is a muscle relaxer that has many side effects that I am experiencing but does put my twitching and spasms under control so I can take the good with the bad.
Is anyone else having weight gain issues from some of these medication mixes? I have not changed anything in my diet and even cut down to very small meals daily and I am still slowly gaining weight and it's upsetting to me, just curious if its this set of medication or the medication for other symptoms of depression and anxiety which go hand in hand with my pain because that aspect is getting worse.
Just wondering if anyone else has gone down this new road with Methadone, I love the way the pharmacy looks at you like a drug addict but should respect that I didn't choose this my doctor did and it's working as expected, have Norcco for my pain spikes that I hope get better after my surgery next week.
Thank you in advance for your experiences.
