Hi there,

Welcome to Just answer !

Well, clonazepam is not known to cause weight gain as a side effect , be rest assured of may be in the holiday and festive season, while you revelled with family and friends your food intake must have got high than usual which got unnoticed in the festive flair of season..

So, just manage your calorie in take and exercise or do brisk walk or jogging , this will put you back on track..

Yes .. hormonal imbalance in this age group may also add to weight fluctuation , so this may also be a factor ...which will stabilize once you pass this phase.

I hope this helps..

Wish you all the best..
