Re: Choice: Be Fat or Stop Metoprolol (crying)
I probably should have made somethings more clear...but I know ppl dont like to read a novel on here lol. I have done the nutritionist thing. I have gone to Drs, done a ton of different weight loss diets, i exercise AT LEAST one hour a day 6 days a week. I have done and tried it all and it simply does NOTHING.
If you google beta blockers and weight gain, you will see thousands (mostly women) in my exact same boat. Extra 20-30lbs right in the belly area that just will NOT come off. I am absolutely fine with taking a medication that I really need for the rest of my life. But if I dont really NEED it (sometimes they prescribe BBs basically to make you more comfortable I think - not necessarily to save your life) and it is causing me great depression, then why continue if I can at least try to get off of them.
I started the BB 10 days before I got pregnant. I stayed on thru out my pregnancy. I gained 70lbs total. The cardio said I never would have gained that much if it wasnt for the BB.
Both my cardio and EP said basically - your fine, this wont kill you, ignore it, take these pills and stop crying. LOL...well, not in those words...I was also told that they could see nothing that would be cause for ablation or any other further treatment. It was all very strange.
So, big girl panties are on. I just want smaller size panties.
