I have been on low dose (12.5 mg twice daily) Metoprolol for a-fib for 6 years. I have gained weight and now am having a lot of trouble loosing weight even with strict dieting. I also have had long-term sleep issues, getting asleep and frequently waking up during the night. Could the drug be responsible?
There have been very rare reports of weight gain with Metoprolol. Insomnia has been reported too, but again it is not common.
If these effects are bothering you see your doctor.
