weight gain bc of methadone

what can i do to stop gaining weight on methadone??
Avatar dr f tn
Hello,
Methadone has been used to cure the withdrawal symptoms in individuals who were previously addicted to opiate drugs. Weight gain is a common side effect of methadone. While on methadone you should try to keep your weight under control through exercise and diet control. Exercise can help you burn calories and build muscles. Take a nutritious diet and avoid taking saturated fats, cholesterols, sugars and sodium intake may help. Discuss with your doctor about reducing the dosage of methadone if you have entered into the recovery phase. Take care and regards!
