So, what are you asking? Unfortunately, she is the one that has to decide to change.

I personally didnt lose any weight off of these drugs, & never really needed to, but after taking methadone for many years is when I lost weight, & I lost it really fast, so now Im trying to gain a few pounds. This could be associated with depression or many other things, if shes a addict who is using, their could be many things you may or may not be aware of.

i lost alot of weight.  i got down to 97 lbs.  i thinkn it really depends onthe person.  but, bottomline is unless she wants help there is very little you can do.  good luck.

It does depend on the person. Many after quitting have gained, some have lost. Same is true while they used.

I lost so much weight when I was on the norocs, because I was doing
so many that I would vomit aleast twice a day or more.

The DR's thought there was something wrong with me and wanted to send
me for text, but I know what was causing the weight loss.

And yes she must want the help.
