Lightbulb On medication and getting fatter!

Hi! I am on medication for high blood pressure, cholesterol and fibromyalgia. I am watching eveything I eat and exercising, but I cannot control my weight. I have decided that I am going to pump up my exercising today. Any suggestions?

I'm currently taking Savella for fibromyalgia. My doctor says it's weight neutral, which means it shouldn't make you gain or lose. I've only been on it a few weeks and I'm feeling better, and so far haven't noticed anything with my weight. I know that everything that was prescribed for my fibromyalgia before this (including Wellbutrin) made me gain weight. Sometimes it's really hard to fight against drugs that cause weight gain. I'm still trying to lose the weight I gained on Wellbutrin, which makes most people lose weight. Figures I'd be one of the gainers..... anyhoo, hope the extra exercise helps with the problem. I know how frustrating it is.
