Any One Out There On Metroplol Succinate Extended Release For A-fib

Do you have problems with weight gain?
Since I've been on it, I have gained about 20 pounds. Part of it I'm sure is actual weight from not exercising and not eating right.- too many calories in, and too few cal. going out. Water weight. I'm on lasix 20 mg once a day, bit find it hard to know when I can take it because I drive bus for 9.5 hrs a day.
