    Has anyone out there ever encountered a pain med that doesn't make you gain weight but makes you have weight loss?

    I lost weight on Prozac, which I took to help with the pain.

    I have been on 20 mg. of Prozac for FMS since 1996. I had gained over 80 pounds on it. Mostly that was due to me not being able to exercise anymore.

    I have only lost 15 pounds since 5/20/05. I'm trying again, but I just don't see the results on the scales. I am on insulin and that makes you gain weight, so it could be the insulin and not the Prozac. I do think the Prozac helps some with hunger.
