In the report by Cody Stanford et al in this issue titled, “The Association Between Weight Promoting Medication Use and Weight Gain in Postmenopausal Women: Findings from the Women’s Health Initiative”, the authors performed a prospective observational cohort study of 252,000 women ages 50 to 79 in the Women’s Health Initiative observational group. They found that antidepressants, beta-blockers, and insulin were associated with weight gain. Thus, before prescribing these medications, physicians should make certain the drugs are indicated and the lowest effective dose is being used. There is also a video abstract associated with this paper for publica viewing.
