Check Your Medications

Sometimes, reducing the weight gain that has been associated with water can be as simple as checking with your physician or pharmacist to determine whether the medications that are being taken are contributing to the water weight gain. In the case that bloating or fluid retention, even swelling (caused by fluid retention) is a side effect, one can easily change the medication to another option that comes without this troublesome side effect. This can be a simple way to reduce the water weight that is associated with the side effect of a medication that has been prescribed.

There are many medications that have been known to cause water weight gain and fluid retention. Some of the common medications that have been known to cause fluid retention include:

  • Accutane
  • Celebrex
  • Minirin
  • Pedialite
  • Serax
  • Tamoxen
  • Tegretol
  • Valium
  • Xanax
  • Vioxx
Sometimes, discontinuing these mediations, or finding an alternative that can be taken to treat various disorders can be an effective way to lose up to twenty pounds of water weight, depending on the severity of the water retention that has been caused by the medication that has been taken. Luckily, in the case of the majority of medications, there are many alternatives that can be used in the case that an individual is experiencing adverse effects of the medication (such as excessive fluid retention leading to water weight).
