Fat pills in disguise! That’s what many common medications really are.
It’s the ultimate medical double cross. You take a pill to get rid of one health problem – allergies, insomnia, or even heart disease – but while you’re working on that your weight spirals out of control, giving you a whole new set of problems.
You feel hungry all the time. Your appetite is ferocious, but your metabolism seems to have gone on vacation. Week after week, the numbers on your scale keep going up.
It may be years before you think to complain to your doctor. Even then, you might not hear what you need to know: Weight gain is a commonly overlooked side effect of everyday medications.
Even if you discover the truth, you’ll still have to deal with the pounds. A better plan? Know ahead of time which four common medications are secret fat pills that make you pack on the pounds and fight back against these unwanted weight gain drugs with an all-natural solution.
More than 13 million people went to their doctor in 2010 to complain about allergies. It’s estimated that 60 million Americans suffer from allergies, making them the fifth most common chronic complaint.
You may reach for over the counter allergy pills as a first line of defense for your nose when the sniffles strike… but you’re not doing your belly any favors. While these pills may help stop the sneezes, they also help you pack on the pounds by altering your appetite.
The antihistamine diphenhydramine increases your appetite as long as you’re on the medication. It’s found in Benadryl, Alka-Seltzer Plus Allergy and many generic antihistamine products. Instead of pure allergy relief, you get the chance to pack on “mystery” pounds that seem to spring up out of nowhere.
Sleep deprivation is a quick path to weight gain. If you’re short on sleep, you eat an average of 300 extra calories a day. While it may not seem like much, those 300 calories represent “a substantial increase in energy intake that, if maintained chronically, would lead to rapid and robust weight gain,” according to sleep researcher Eve Van Cauter.
Making matters worse is that most of those calories come in the form of high-fat and high-sugar junk foods. Ice cream is a favorite food of the sleep deprived and so is fast food. Thus, turning to sleeping pills is a smart weight loss choice … or is it?
It turns out sleeping pills are actually weight gain drugs that boost your appetite even more. Common over the counter pills like Sominex, Unisom, and Nytol all stimulate your appetite. Add the calorie hike you’re already getting from being tired in the first place and this one-two punch is a sure path to unwanted and unwelcome pounds.
Being overweight can make you feel depressed … but don’t count on antidepressants to give you any help with the scale.
Leading antidepressants such as Paxil, Pexeva and Celexa actually work to increase your appetite. They are SSRIs that contain paroxetine and citalopram, which modify your perception of hunger. Other antidepressants that work on dopamine won’t give you the same weight gain problems these pills will, but the likelihood of extra pounds isn’t always highlighted as a potential side of treatment. As a result, you may find yourself feeling better but looking worse.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in America, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Unfortunately, heart medications can also cause unwanted weight gain.
The top culprits are dedicated beta-blockers such as Lopressor and Tenormin, which really should be called fat pills! Researchers believe these drugs reduce your overall metabolic rate, making it harder for you to burn calories and lose weight. Sadly, weight gain isn’t even mentioned as a common side effect by top medical sites like the Mayo Clinic, leaving you in the dark as to why you’re putting on extra pounds while you take heart pills.

… DON’T Eat These Worst Fast Food Heart Attacks!
The nutritional stats on these worst fast food items make a home-cooked burger look like a superfood … or may make you start to view your prior favorite more like a “heart attack or stroke in a box … “
10 Worst Fast Food Items
10. McDonald’s Bacon Angus and Cheese
This one-third of a pound burger will set you back nearly 800 calories and 39 grams of fat – 17 of them saturated (that’s 87% of the amount you’re supposed to get in a day). Add in the 2,070 mg of sodium (86% of the daily value) and the artificial flavors (in the beef, no less), and you’re better of taking a pass.
9. Taco Bell Volcano Nachos
These spicy nachos boast that they’re topped with “reduced fat sour cream,” which is kind of laughable when you consider one portion still has 58 grams of fat (9 saturated), 970 calories and 1,670 mg of sodium.
8. Sonic Footlong Quarter Pound Coney Dog
This concoction of hotdog, chili and cheese is supposed to conjure up memories of summer, but with 830 calories, 1,940 mg of sodium (nearly a day’s worth) and 54 grams of fat – 22 of them saturated (more than you’re supposed to eat in an entire day), this dog will leave you with more than just memories …
7. Burger King Triple Whopper With Cheese
6. KFC Chicken Pot Pie
While at 790 the calorie count may not seem too bad compared to some of the other choices on this list, more than half of these calories come from fat. This entrée has 45 grams of fat total, and 37 of them are saturated. It also has nearly a day’s worth of sodium – 1,970 mg.
5. Super Sonic Bacon Double Cheeseburger with Mayo
With 1,280 calories and a whopping 92 grams of fat, 36 of them saturated (plus 3.5 grams of trans fats!), this is one burger that might leave you clutching your chest. It’s also got 1,630 mg of sodium to round out your meal.
4. Quiznos Large Classic Italian Sub
Think a sub is a better choice than a burger? Not always. This Italian sub, which has capicola, salami, ham, pepperoni, mozzarella, black olives, and red wine vinaigrette has 1,150 calories, 61 grams of fat (18 saturated and 1 trans fat), and 3,260 mg of sodium – well over a day’s worth.
3. Quiznos Large Tuna Sub
Another deceiving one if you think a tuna sandwich is good for you. This one is so big that it has 1,260 calories and 74 grams of fat (16 saturated), plus over 2,000 mg of sodium. For a tuna sandwich!
2. Burger King Ultimate Breakfast Platter
This platter of scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns, a biscuit and pancakes and syrup will set you back 1,450 calories, 84 grams of fat (30 grams saturated, 1 trans fat), and 2,920 mg sodium. And you’re still supposed to have room for lunch and dinner, too …
1. Friendly’s Honey BBQ Chicken Supermelt
This is no ordinary chicken sandwich; it’s made from breaded chicken strips, cheddar cheese, bacon and ranch dressing. At 1,500 calories, it’s got close to a day’s worth right there, along with 78 grams of fat (24 saturated) and 2,410 mg of sodium. If you thought chicken was always the “healthier” option, this will make you think again.
