Our expert says:
Xanax ( a trade name for Alprazolam ) is a sedative tranquilizer. It could be associated with some weight gain as you might be less active, even drowsy, while taking it, but I would not expect it to cause weight loss ( if it reliably did so, more of us might be tempted to take it !).
Has anything else changed in your life recently ? Diet ? Exercise ? Other drugs ? Other symptoms ? Maybe check with your GP and have a physical checkup to rule out any other possible ilnesses contributing to this.
