hi I've been taken metoprolol for years, use to take 100mg 2x daily never gained weight then, or now

that's not what i was asking whether or not you gained weight i don't care if you gained or lost weight. I've gained weight since being on the drug and it appears that i'm not the only one. I was looking for an alternative drug that may not have this as a side effect. Thanks

Hello – Weight gain is not a known side effect of Metoprolol. Could it be fluid/swelling? It is worth seeing your doctor. You ask about an alternative drug. There is alternatives to most drugs, but depends on what you are taking it for - Take care

I use to have long thick hair since I have taken Metoprolol I have lost a lot of my hair. My hair is so thin you can put it all between two of my fingers
