I'm on a few meds my eating habits haven't changed I have been on a few meds known to cause weight gain. The only med since I have gained the massive amount of weight that I have been on is my BP med. Clonidine... Could this be the cause of more weight gain and the reason I can't shed the pounds put on from the previous medications I have stopped? I am to the point I want weight loss surgery. Not wanting to be seen in public places... already having anxiety, depression, ptsd... it just adds to it all...

Quickly looking at the reviews of clonidine, no one has mentioned weight gain (up to where I read). However, rapid weight gain is a serious side effect of clonidine. If was rapid weight gain after taking clonidine I would recommend that you see your doctor.
