Maybe up your exercising a bit?  Nothing too drastic but it could help.  It also might just be a random fluctuation.  It’s normal to have weight changes that could be multiple pounds up or down.

Drink lots of water (I know counter intertuitive)

Avoid salt!!!!! (read your labels- things you would never expect have lots of salt. Yogurt, cereal, bread, cheeses, dressings)

Avoid simple carbs. all breads, pastas, cereals. Stick to barley, brown rice, quinoa, amaranth.

And exercise and drink water. Yeah, I know I said that already, but its true and helps within days.

Medications for what? I had 2 pretty severe reactions to drugs that are no longer on the market, and gained about 10 lbs. in a week too. My hands and feet were so swollen I couldn’t remove my rings or get my shoes on. Once I discontinued, the swelling went away pretty quickly. Have you checked with the pharmacy to see if this is a common side effect?
