Opiates and weight gain was created by Mrs1980
Hey all,

I am currently on Targin 30mg twice a day and have put on 9 kgs since starting it!

I take full responsibility for my poor eating habits but I am fairly well disciplined with my diet usually. But I find myself craving carbs and sugar!

Does anyone know if a different opiate may have less of an effect on appetite/food craving/metabolism?

Any advise or experienced appreciated!!

Thanks
Mrs1980

Hi Mrs1980,

I can't comment specifically on Targin, but it might be best to have a chat to your GP about the weight gain.

I'm not on Targin, but I constantly crave carbs and sugar (and always have), so I'm doing my best at restricting my intake of both.

It's a constant battle, but I've really cut down on drinking soft drink.

Cheers,
Darren

Hi Mrs 1980,

Have a chat with your pharmacist he could possibly help as well
