Yes, Weight gain can occur as a side effect of some beta blockers, especially the older ones, such as atenolol (Tenormin) and metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol-XL).
While weight gain is not a typical side effect of metoprolol, a feeling of tiredness or fatigue can be a common side effect of the medication. Weight gain or difficulty losing weight can be related to conditions like stress or fatigue.
Yes, beta-blockers in long term can cause erectile dysfunction...
For your tachycardia, you may switch over to Ivabradine 5 mg once daily
Ivabradine acts by reducing the heart rate via specific inhibition of the funny channel, a mechanism different from that of beta blockers. It's much safer than beta-blockers with less side effectsं.
Please discuss this with your physician,
