Depends on what kind of pain killers you're talking about. I know that ibuprofen does make you retain water, but acetominaphen(SP?) doesn't. Others may know more about this subject than me. Julia

I "gain" with Ultram, but it is temporary....the thing with pain killers ( and what I mean are prescription drugs) is that they slow me down. The lethargy makes me less active and I think if your metabolism slows down, it makes it easier to gain...( Like I need something to HELP me gain)

After I had my last child, I didn't lose weight until after I stopped taking the pain killers. I lost 10 pounds literally overnight. I woke up the next morning 10 pounds lighter. I think it was ibuprofen based.

Hello, do pain Killers make you gain water? I assume you mean (retain) water. I am not sure if it is clinically proven however, I have been taking pain medicine for two years and YES I have absolutly gained weight. I have actually gained 30 lbs. I think it is mainly due to the fact that I am not able to be as active as I once was, but there again the medication makes me very hungry so I tend to eat more often. Drink more water and maybe it will help you pass the water weight instead of retaining it. Good Luck!

What I have learned is that whenever I am healing either from an injury or an infection I go up on the scale. My doctor explained that is was my body's way of protecting itself. Stay on plan and get better those pesky pounds will vanish plus some!

Can't remember ever taking pain pills for more than three days in a row.
(Except aspirin). And the last time time was years ago. No fluid retention.

No weight gain.

But then again some people gain weight on a Beta Blocker. And I didn't.

I take naproxen quite often,I definitely notice when I take them I retain water big time.Then when I stop,I can't stop visiting the bathroom.Actually the true name is Naproxen Sodium,maybe it's the sodium thing?
