I have had rapid weight gain since taking carvedilol. My food intake has not changed that much, however maybe my salt intake has been higher.

I know this is an old question but there are probably more of us out there. They should change the side effects list if it says weight loss because I have gained rapidly on carvedilol as well. Unfortunately I can't just stop taking it. My dr. is aware but doesn't seem to think it's a problem.. It is for me!

I, too, gained weight, and felt bloated. I had gut issues along with the weight gain. Took myself off the carvedilol, and within three days was much better. Working with my primary and cardio docs to try to find something else. I am not a person who cares much for salty stuff, so I can leave that out of the mix. I would sure talk to your docs and try to figure out a solution.
