Paracetamol and ibuprofen
Does anybody know if taking painkillers hinders weight loss? It may seem a daft question but as some of you may know I was ecstatic last week as I was wasting my syns and lost 5lbs. This week however I haven't lost anything so far (I've had a cheeky mid week weigh) I weigh usually on Tuesday mornings. I have been living on painkillers this week due to a horrid tooth extraction but that appears to be calming down and due to this I've only managed 1 gym session
I'm a bit worried I'm going back to the previous weeks where is was STS
Paracetamon and ibuprofen
I don't take then so I'm unsure. But my scales measure water in the body. Whenever I have a cold or feel ill my body retains water.
So unsure if our bodies retain water to help fight off sickness or whether that's just me :)
Re: Paracetamol and ibuprofen
If they contain codeine then they will definitely cause constipation, but not weight 'gain' - it'll go when you go lol. Codeine is part of same family as morphine - and you used to be able to get kaolin & morphine mixture for upset tummies because it stopped diarrhoea. The opiates make the digestive system slower because they slow the body down.
