Hello,
Weight gain is listed side effect of Celebrex and Xanax.
So if you have gained weight after taking these medicines so you should discuss it with your doctor.
Thyroid dysfunction,lack of physical activity,poor diet can be other possible causes of weight gain.
So thyroid function test should be done in your case.


I hope this helps.

Expert:  Dr. Anil Kumar replied 10 months ago.
Hello,
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern and it's good to ask your doctor for this unexplained weight gain and if required opt for other medicines.
Even a complete health profile should be done to rule out other underlying causes like hormonal imbalance.


I hope this helps.

Hello,
Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
You'll lose such gained pounds in few weeks after stopping Celebrex.
Aleve or Advil can also cause weight gain however not so common.
Cigarette smoking does not cause weight gain.
You can continue your Xanax.

Hello,
Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Percocet and Oxycodone don't cause weight gain however can cause weight loss as they can result in loss of appetite.

I hope this helps.

i take a muscle relaxant maybe one a day do they cauuse weight gain


last questionn and then we are done and you will get bonus Laughing

Expert:  Dr. Anil Kumar replied 10 months ago.
Hello,
Muscle relaxant one time a day mayn't cause significant weight gain so it's good to reduce your muscle relaxant dosage to one time a day when you actually need it.

Hope this helps.
