Slimming World has many members who are losing weight very successfully while taking all different kinds of medication, including antidepressants, HRT, Thyroxin, Tamoxifen, and the contraceptive pill.


However, we are aware that some antidepressants are reported to increase appetite, and some members on Tamoxifen may see a weight gain.


The great news is that with Slimming World's Food Optimizing plan, there’s always plenty of Free Foods to eat to satisfy your hunger and still lose weight. We have many members who find they can easily satisfy their increased appetite while taking medication, and still lose weight successfully.


We always remind members that the worst thing they can do is think that there’s no point in continuing to follow Food Optimizing 100% while on a medicationas this will likely lead to gained weight.
