13 Drugs That Can Make You Gain Weight


12. Tenormin (atenolol)

Drugs, which are known to treat high blood pressure like Lopressor, Inderal and Tenormin are linked to weight gain and expanded waistline.

According to the research people who started taking Tenormin for high blood pressure gain 5 pounds of weight in the first 3 months as compared to the people in placebo group. Drugs like these also slows down the metabolism and calories burning process and causes fatigue.

13. Birth control

98% of the birth control pills are blamed for causing weight gain but according to the doctors they are merely unwarranted.

The long acting and progestin injectable birth control drugs are more likely to be associated with weight gain and they are known as depot medroxyprogesterone acetate. But the women who are already obese or overweight are more likely to gain weight through birth control pills as compared to the others.
