Eight weeks ago I started taking Cerazette. Could this be responsible for me gaining weight?

The answer

One of the listed side-effects of cerazette is ‘weight change’ which in some cases means some weight gain. However, the amount of weight gained is usually fairly small, perhaps a few pounds. It would be very unlikely to be responsible for a more significant weight gain. Often medication is easy to blame for an increase in weight when food intake may be a more likely culprit.
