I have epilepsy and the drugs for it can cause weight gain. Does anyone else have this side effect? My medication has been changed 3 times over the last year each adding on weight, so I've been trying to keep weight down as well as losing weight as I started this overweight. I'm just getting so fed up with all this-last week I gave up and indulged in chocolate! I'm trying to find low fat things, use sweeteners instead of sugar, skimmed milk instead of sugary drinks and I prefer fresh cooked meals using olive oil to cook. I haven't so far tried a proper diet but the NHS tips are excellent. I hope I'll find some encouragement here
