When considering weight it is important to determine 'where' the weight is sitting i.e. is it adipose (fat) or water weight. This is what is called body composition analysis and the are different machines that can be used to check this.
If your fat composition is well over normal then a carefully designed eating plan is what would be required. Weight reduction is a very simple formula - calories in vs calories out i.e. if you taken in fewer calories than you burn you WILL lose weight. I suggest you consult with a` dietician to assist you in this regard.
If you have excess water retention this is something that your MD should be able to assist you with by prescribing
The combination of the medications can, of course, compound the problem, however this would need to be discussed with your Physician.
