Oh Luther I can feel your pain. I have put on 70 pounds in the past year 18 months. I was told instead of compulsive gambling mine is eating. If you find something out let me know.

Have a great new year
Ann

I have the opposite problem. Have always been thin but in the last year have dropped almost 30lbs. (192 down to 162). Has everyone else lost sense of taste and smell. I also have difficulty swallowing so meal time aren't always a lot of fun. Not sure which is worse, a forced high calorie diet of a low cal diet?

My sister is on Mirapex and she has gained weight.She is hungry all the time. It makes it harder for her to exercise.

That is so funny (or not) that we are all writing about gaining weight! I literally came on to the site tonight to start a post about it! Ughhhhh, I am glad I'm not the only one, but it's irritating me so much :( I feel my pants getting tighter, and since last Feb, I've gained a little over 50 lb! I don't feel like I'm eating any more, but am wondering if the meds slow down your metabolism? Anyone know? I gotta ask my Dr next time I see her. She did mention it to me last month, but it was in passing conversation. I noticed it more since I've started the Azilect. So frustrating! I feel like a fat pig :oops:
