Hi. I m on meds for rheumatoid arthritis and I m overweight. I take methotrexate, lyrica, prednisone, and meloxicam. I exercise as much as possible and eat as healthy as possible but it s still really hard to lose the weight. I m 5 3 and weigh between 220 & 225. I had 2 back surgeries a little over a yr ago & both of my knees are bone on bone with bone spurs. That makes it hard 2 do certain exercises. My question is, would I be able to take the weight loss med CONTRAVE with the other meds that I m on?
