Xanax (generic name: alprazolam) has been associated with weight gain in some people who take it. On the other hand, some people taking Xanax have reported weight loss. How can that be?

Xanax is an anxiety-reducing medication (anxiolytic). For many people, eating behavior and one’s relationship toward food is closely tied to their mood. Some people eat more and gain weight when they’re anxious. Other people’s nerves cause them to lose their appetite, eat less, and lose weight.

No one knows exactly how Xanax changes appetite and eating behavior in people who take it. Likewise, no one can predict what an individual person’s appetite response to Xanax will be. Xanax is habit-forming, and regular use can lead to physical dependency in a relatively short period of time. Being aware of changes to your appetite, and sticking with a healthy diet and exercise routine, will help minimize any weight changes associated with taking Xanax.
