It all depends on your metabolism and your activity level. I am on Norvasc also and have gained some weight but I am inactive right now due to cancer issues. Most pills unfortunately for us do make you gain weight especially if you are inactive. It shouldn't make you gain alot though, if you do gain alot please contact your doctor to make sure you do not have water buildup which is a strong possibility with Norvasc, at least that's what happened to me anyway. Norvasc is a good drug just keep in touch with your doctor if there is to much weight gain. Hope this helps, make sure you don't just drop the Norvasc without consulting with your doctor though it could make your blood presure go to high by just dropping it.
