Re: Beta Blockers vs Calcium Channel Blockers and weight gain
I've been taking the Beta Blocker Coreg for over a year. It has really helped me, and it definitely hasn't caused any weight increase. Coreg has been shown to be less likely to cause weight gain, than other Beta Blockers, especially in patients with Diabetes.
In my case, as I've increased my Coreg (Caredilol) dosage, I've experienced a slight weight loss, even though I have significantly increased the size of my meals. Of course...... everyone is different and may react differently to the same medication.
