Re: Concerta causing weight gain?

If you go all day without eating, and then eat a lot late at night, you will gain weight, even if your total calories are not that high. That's because your body is starving all day, so by the time it gets calories late at night, it's in a starved state and it clings to those calories.

I'm also gaining weight, since the meds suppress my appetite during the day, and then my appetite goes through the roof at night, when the meds wear off. I'm not on Concerta, but the same thing happens to me.

Your doctor had great insight, btw.
