Does Xanax Cause Weight Loss?
“Does Xanax cause weight loss?” is a question that I get asked on a fairly regular basis. There are many things that can cause weight loss in an individual and it is important to keep in mind that this is not always a good thing.
A very good way to avoid this problem is to discuss your options with your doctor or therapist. If you feel like something could be triggering the onset of appetite loss, it is likely that your body is trying to control that situation.
Most people who suffer from anorexia will have been prescribed the Clonidine diet pill that works to suppress the appetite by blocking the CBX receptor in the brain. In order to keep the appetite suppressed and keep the stress levels low, they would eat less.
This means that you will be eating more of the fatty foods that have become the norm for anorexics. While this may seem like a healthy way to avoid gaining weight, it is often a recipe for disaster as it is very hard to maintain a consistent weight and you will continue to binge eat if you are constantly trying to suppress your hunger.
At some point, the CBX receptor will have a chance to wake up and your body will find its food source and you will regain weight. Weight gain will occur because of this in most cases.
The truth is that the majority of the time, people who take Xanax are doing so in a short term fix for anorexia and will actually lose weight permanently. There are some exceptions to this rule but not many.
You need to understand that when you take an appetite suppressant and are constantly denying yourself of food, you will not experience weight loss in the same way as someone who is eating according to their needs. The fact is that for the most part, the stress from anorexia causes you to crave for food and once you have been told to eat, you will feel the need to binge eat on junk food.
While there is a difference between food cravings and the actual feelings that come from anorexia, you must remember that the problem with Xanax is that the person is always hungry. While it might sound like a paradox, in most cases you are not only craving for food but you are actually feeling hungry.
People who are on a Xanax habit are much more likely to be binge eating and once the effects are gone, the weight is usually regained. When a person is taking an anti-depressant, the CBX receptor will be knocked out and once the hormones have calmed down again, they will be craving for food again.
As you can see, it is easy to fall into the trap of assuming that weight loss can occur with a desire to suppress an appetite but this is far from the truth. While weight loss can occur, it is just not common.
The weight loss that occurs is just occurring because of diet pills that were used in conjunction with your other health issues. As a result, you are simply trying to eat less and you will end up in the same problem of binge eating that occurred before the anti-depressants took effect.
To avoid this situation, it is best to maintain a balanced weight for the long term without any drugs or medications. In addition, it is important to know that there are many alternative remedies that can help you avoid this type of problem.
