Our expert says:
I looked up these medications in my copy of MIMS and the following side-effects are listed for Celestamine: fluid and electrolyte disturbances, so some of your weight gain could be due to water retention which is not the same as a buildup of fat. No weight-related side-effects are liste for Deselex. Daily gym exercises may also be developing your muscles and muscle tissue ironically weighs more than fat tissue, so you may weigh more without having added any fat. Discuss your weight gain with the dr who is prescribing your medications for the urticaria to see if there are alternatives that do not affect fluid and electrolytes. To monitor if you are building muscles, keep track of your vital measurements. If the exercise is firming you up you will lose cm, which also indicates that you are not necessarily gaining fat.
