Gaining weight: Gaining weight can be difficult for people who are naturally thin.

Began Zanaflex (tizanidine) 4mg 2x/day, 1mo ago. I've gained at least 5 lbs.; no change in diet, etc. It works, but is there a comparable one w/o weight gain?
No: This medication is a muscle relaxant. Almost all of the available muscle relaxants work through the central nervous system and not at the muscle itself.

Weight gain so I have changed my diet, cut out soda and fatty foods and I am still gaining weight. Mostly just in the waist. Any ideas?
Hello.: Hello. If you have not seen your physician in a while, recommend that you be evaluated to determine if there is any medical reason to explain your weight gain. Sometimes people make the mistake of cutting down on their calories too drastically, this can paradoxically slow down the metabolic rate (and lead to more weight gain). If you aren't already doing it; recommend aerobic activity as well as weight lifting to enhance muscle mass.
