    Antibiotics in themselves wil not make you gain weight. They may make you retain water but it will be only temporary, biscuits with antibiotics will make you gain weight :)

    Feel better and think how glad you will feel getting that award knowing that you did it inspite of the antibiotic !!

    I always find that I'm hungrier when I'm ill, especially when I have a high temperature. Try to fill up on free foods. Antibiotics block me up so badly and they can make you gain (temporary) water weight.

    Wish you better!

    I'm on permanent antibiotics and don't have a problem with weight gain or water retention on them. They are notorious for bunging you up and if you take them on an empty stomach, can make you feel nauseous. I find when this happens, drinking diet fizz helps me or a piece of toast.

    Steroids are the only recognised medication that s/w will allow for weight gain and water retention as well as certain conditions like thyroid issues.

    Banana's i think are high in potassium which you should be careful of eating too many. Manybe they are what are causing you the issues?

    Hope this kinda helps
