Antibiotics and weight

I have an infection and am taking cipro and flagyl.  I thought that because of the rules around taking one on an empty stomach and the other with food and because it makes my insides not feel so good that I would lose weight.  Not so!  I can almost watch my thighs grow!  I've been good except to help the burning in my gut I did make some tapioca pudding yesterday and ate it all last night.  I've cut my wine as it is a no no with the drugs and thought that would help too.  Has anyone else experienced weight gain on antibiotics?

I don't know for sure, but as someone who has been on multiple antibiotics since Dec and having a very tough time with my weight, I'd like to think it's part of why I'm so challenged.  I can relate to taking some with food and some without, then also probiotics that need to be taken hours apart from the antibiotics!  As a result, I have two pill cases, each with AM/PM sections, or else I lose track.

Let me know if you feel a return to equilibrium once you are finished with the antibiotics.  In the meantime, hang in there and at least you know you're knocking out your infection!
