Name all the medications you've stopped taking since losing weight.

I need some motivation and I know I can go off Lasix if I lose some weight. Help!!!!

It's not a prescription drug (believe it or not, it works better for me than all the ones I've tried), but my yearly Excedrin bill is half what it used to be. I don't think weight or inactivity causes migraines, but I think exercise has improved my circulation (blood, oxygen, lymph, etc) to the point where I get a lot fewer of them.

My headaches have nearly gone away too, since I have begun to eat less and better.

Excedrin...used to need 2 doses, 3-5x a week. My migraines aren't hideous - I don't get neurological symptoms. But they do make me want to hide in a dark hole.

I've stopped swallowing Ex-Cuses, all forms and all strengths. never did anything but give me side effects, mostly added weight, and a bad attitude. ever since i weaned off of Ex-Cuses, i've felt better and am all-around healthier!!

well seeing as my weight loss was partially due to a change in diet,

No more exedrin (No more migrains)
No more Allegra (No more allergies)
No more Ventolin (No more asthma)
No more Protonix (No more stomach problems)
No more neo-medrol (No more bad skin)
No more Naproxin (Cramps aren't that bad)

And, I almost went on anti-depressants, but the diet change happened just before that, and after a month I knew I didn't need anti-depressants either.

All this happened within a 4 month period where I lost 25lbs. (went on to lose another 15, now trying to lose the last 20)
