Ok my son has been on xanax for a few months now. He was on zoloft for a little bit then was taken off that and put on the xanax. Since all of this he has gained about forty pounds. He also is on dexadrine and depakote for his adhd and bipolar and epilepsy. He had never gained weight on those. I took him to the doc(a neuroligst which I have no faith in) and he told me that the depakote was what was making him gain the weight. I said i dont think so because he has been on it for yrs with no gain. Has any one ever gained weight like that being on the xanax i was just wondering.
