Can Prescription Drugs Cause Weight Gain?
Losing weight, or maintaining a healthy weight, can be a battle for many patients. Roughly 70 percent of people in the U.S. are over their ideal body weight or exceed their recommended body mass index (BMI). Aging, lack of exercise, and diet changes are all culprits in the battle to keep weight down. Some very common medications can also lead to weight gain - prescription drugs used for mood disorders, diabetes, high blood pressure and seizures can all add on unwanted pounds. While some medications are more common than others to add pounds, not all patients gain weight from every drug that has weight gain listed as a side effect.

Tamoxifen's Mental Side Effects Are Real, Study Shows
Some women who take #tamoxifen to treat or prevent breast cancer report experiencing a mental fogginess while on the drug, and researchers have now confirmed that there's a biological basis for those symptoms.

The researchers were able to isolate the cells in the human brain and nervous system that are harmed by tamoxifen therapy. And, in a second phase of the study conducted with mice, they were also able to find a different drug that could protect healthy cells from tamoxifen toxicity while offering no protection to cancer cells.

Tamoxifen works by blocking the action of estrogen in breast tissue, which keeps estrogen-sensitive breast cancers from growing, according to the U.S. National Cancer Institute. Compared to other forms of cancer treatments, it has relatively few serious side effects. However, in some women who take it, tamoxifen causes problems with thinking.
