Hi there,

This is Dr Diego, experienced Internal Medicine, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

I understand your concerns. Xanax is a medication that is not related to weight gain. Actually xanax can cause decreased appetite. Most people maintain the same weight. Xanax does not cause water retention. Don't worry about gaining weight while taking xanax.

The only way I am credited here by the website and the money that you have deposited is released is when you rate me.
Therefore, I would appreciate a rating when you are done asking.
Kindest regards
