No and yes: No, tramadol should not cause any wt gain, but yes - taking this with bupropion may increase your risk of seizures especially at higher doses. A history of seizures would be a contraindication for using buproprron in most cases.

Tramodol: Tramadol does not increase weight, but you can have a seizures if you take opioids and subaxon

Not much you can do: I assume you are close to delivering. Honestly there is not much you can do at this point. You can try a warm bath or heating pad. You can try lying on your back with a pillow under your knees.

Unlikely: If you do not have a history of premature delivery then lifting weights generally does not cause premature delivery. It can however cause back problems or pulled muscles. I recommend not repeatedly lifting anything more than thirty pounds during the third trimester.

Yes: Even though I am far from a bean pole, weight loss in general will improve most all disorders (with the exception of emaciation, anorexia nervosa and bulimia of course). Dr. J.

Depends on calories: Breastfeeding is a great way to lose weight after delivery. It increases your metabolism and helps you burn more calories. Increase your exercise each day to burn calories as well. Eating well balanced meals is the most healthy diet and i highly recommend keeping a food diary to know how many calories you are taking in. www.tweetwhatyoueat.com is a great easy to use food diary.

Usually weight loss: Most people lose weight while on combination therapy for chronic hepatitis C because of flu-like or gi-related side effects. Interferon can interfere with thyroid function which can be associated with weight gain.
