When discontinuing the use of suppository indomethacin after 4 yrs at 200mg/day, will I re-lose my weight and water retention?

Possibly: While I don't know why you were using indomethacin suppositories for 4 years, I would think moving away from that is a good idea. Great! Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such a indomethacin do cause fluid retention and I think it is very possible you will lose a little weight from fluid losses. I would be surprised if it were more than 2-4 pounds, though. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Dehydration. ..: The scenario suggests she might have significant dehydration with marginally poor renal function; after rehydration with IV, s creatinine will drop and fluid would be distributed into her vascular & interstitial space. So, that is okay as long as having no heart failure and unwanted edema. More? Ask treating doc for individual specific questions since s/he knows more about hers than anyone online. ...Read more

What amount weight is water retention?

What amount weight is water retention?

Water weight?: A rapid increase in weight is due to water accumulation. You cannot gain a lb. Of fat in 24 hours, but you can gain a lb. Of water in that time period. If you have no edema and weigh yourself in the morning and find your weight to be increasing, that is the weight of water you are gaining. Likewise, if you lose a lb. Of weight in 24 hours, you are losing water, not fat, weight. I trust this helps. ...Read more

Does Biaxin (clarithromycin) cause water retention or weight gain?

Does Biaxin (clarithromycin) cause water retention or weight gain?

No: Really unlikely. Antibiotics work because they hit the germ and not us. Biaxin (clarithromycin) doesn't interact with the kidneys or with fluid.

Rare (really really rare) reactions like allergies might possibly cause unexpected effects like liver failure. but Biaxin (clarithromycin) doesn't commonly do this AND, there'd be a lot of other symptoms (brown urine, abdominal swelling and pain, being really sick, etc.). ...Read more

Phenothiazine: This medication is a phenothiazine class antihistaminic antipsychotic medication. Medications of this type have historically been known to cause weight gain by appetite stimulation. Finding data on side effects of this medication proved quite difficult online. There was some information about metabolic syndrome cases but I did not see anything that had to do with edema. Without a formal pdr like print out however I cannot say for sure that at least some of the weight gain does not come from edema. ...Read more

Not too concerned: If the duration of just one week, the effect will usually not be noticeable. Beware that you may have a greater appetite from it and thus try to control your food intake and perhaps do more exercise. As for the sodium retention, it is not an issue for most people but restricting your salt intake and increasing potassium intake may occasionally be required. ...Read more

Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol): Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) or Yasmin should not result in fluid retention since the Progesterone in it has diuretic properties.
